I was reading Ecrits...

What's Lacan getting at at the end of the purloined letter; the part with the greek symbols and the math? It looked to be some sort of mathematical representation of the link between the orders, but I'm not sure.

I haven't read the specific work, but my guess is: absolutely nothing. Lacan is notorious for misusing mathematical notation. He probably thinks he means something, but what he thinks he means is probably unknowable.
