comment Should names of scientific theories be capitalized?
I just would like to have a criterion. Why doesn't one write Homology Theory with capitals? They're proper nouns as well.

comment Is saying “but nevertheless…” redundant?
@tchrist, indeed I am a native Spanish speaker. That said I'm not even sure whether in Spanish it is correct to say that (but that's not the point). The point is that, even if I knew, structures are not always preserved by translations :)

comment Why abbreviation for “Definition” as “Def^n” (math context)
As it happens, I'd like to save space in a blackboard: so I would tend to contract words that frequently appear, as expansion as exp^n, etc. I just wanted to understand a pattern, in order to do it correctly. So, as far as I understand, there is no pattern, right?

Yes, by exponent I meant superscript (which I didn't know how to type other than with LaTeX). I know what you wrote: but I don't know the rules for abbreviating with this <sup>n</sup>. That's the question.

comment Abbreviation or expression for ‘we will prove that’
This is an interesting question (which cannot be posed in math.SE) "QED" and "Theorem" do not answer the question, the former is to indicate end of proof, and the latter is for other purpose. Why was it closed? (@Claudius which is the LaTeX command for zu zeigen?)

comment Hyphens after the prefixes “non-” and “anti-” in mathematics
Yes, your third point is preciesly what I had in mind. Before people wrote "non-commutative geometry", now "noncommutative geometry".
