In so many words - This phrase may be used to mean 'approximately' or 'more or less'. I think it may have a sarcastic connotation in that the individual listening needed 'so many words' to get the point. It also may suggest the effort on the part of the speaker to explain an unpleasant truth or difficult concept.
***
None so blind as those who will not see - This idiom is used when people refuse to accept facts presented to them. ('None so deaf as those who will not hear' is an alternative.)
***
Say-so - If you do something on someone else's say-so, you do it on the authority, advice or recommendation.
***
So it goes - This idiom is used to be fatalistic and accepting when something goes wrong.
***
So on and so forth - And so on and so forth mean the same as etcetera (etc.).
***
So what - Impolite reply showing that the speaker is not impressed by what has been said. ex: So what? Why should I care?

Cutlery never sounded so good, or got so many laughs.
Being a zombie has never been so hot, so hip, so horribly on trend.
We are happy to be able to help so many new so many new patients.

Dual 2-complexes in 4-manifolds
Then ˆP(V ) has a G-action so that we can form the orbit space G\ ˆP(V ). (A theorem of Chevalley implies that G\P(V ) is rational, hence so is this completion.) 3.2.
Compactifications defined by arrangements I: the ball quotient case
In this case suppression is so severe (1/ρ2 < τ 2 ) and/or rescattering transition between J/ψ and D (∗)D (∗) is so strong (τ 2 > ρ2 ) that any value is possible for δ .
Final-state interaction and s-quark helicity conservation in B -> J/psi K*
Suppose that the gravitational wave is not so strong, so the higher order contribution is very small.
Gauge Theory of Gravity
For example, the supersymmetric SO(32) theory on S 1 can have the gauge group SO(34) by choosing appropriate radius and Wilson line.

It is well known that this space can be realized as the coset of the euclidean Poincare’ group ˜P with respect to SO(4): P ∼ ˜P /SO(4).

In this limit the coset SO(5)/SO(4) (which is nothing else than the four dimensional unit sphere) exactly becomes the euclidean four–dimensional space.
