What the...  

From The String Coffee Table:

Unless I am hallucinating the following is the correct formalism to generalize the well-known Deligne hypercohomology formulation of strict abelian p-gerbes to weak and nonabelian p-gerbes.

I know it means something. In fact I know enough physics to get the gist of some of what it's saying and to know where to look up the rest. So I really shouldn't pick on this ... it's perfectly clear for its intended audience.

However, I just can't get enough of "the well-known Deligne hypercohomology forumation of strict abelian p-gerbes". It's just using the phrase "well-known" in a way I hilariously wasn't previously aware of. :-) :-)
