### Can fundamental theorem of algebra for real polynomials be proven without using complex numbers?

For polynomials with real coefficients, I am trying to prove the following version of fundamental theorem of algebra, which avoids using complex numbers in the proof. Existence of complex roots will ...

### An inequality for $|\zeta (s,a)|$, a detailed proof

In page 272 of [1], Apostol leaves as a reader's assigment to complete a proof of a related statement with Hurwitz zeta function, defined initially for $\sigma >1$ by the series ...

### Classify groups of order 171

This is a problem from Stanford Algebra Qualifying Exam, Fall 1998. I know the standard way is to use Sylow theorems and semidirect product. $171 = 9\cdot 19$. By Sylow theorems, $n_3|19$ and ...

### Higher Order Derivative Proof .

I would appreciate if someone could check over my proof for this question and advise me if it is correct. My attempt so far; Now as $f$ is k times differentiable , it taylor series about $x_{0}$ ...

### Uniform limit of one-to-one analytic functions is either constant or one-to-one

Let $U$ be a complex domain, and $(f_n)_{n\in \mathbb{N}}$ be a sequence on one-to-one analytic functions defined on $U$. Suppose that $f_n$ converges to $f$ uniformly on every compact subset of $U$. ...

### From $\prod_{d\mid n}d=n^{\sigma_0(n)/2}$ to $n!=\operatorname{lcm}(1,\ldots,n)^{e(n)}$, where $\sigma_0(n)$ is the number of divisors

We know that $$\prod_{d\mid n}d=n^{\sigma_{0}(n)/2}$$ for every integer $n\geq 1$, where $\sigma_{0}(n)$ is the number of positive divisors of $n$, see for example [1] (exercise 10, page 47). And for ...

### Me vs. Wikipedia (Lacunary function)?

I was recently reading this wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lacunary_function and found atleast the example they are giving must be wrong because I have kind of managed to analytically ...

### Inner Functions in Annuli: Not Likely!

The other day someone reminded me of something I'd thought about some years ago. As back then it took me a little while to see why there was any problem; this time I got much farther on a solution ...

### Olympic number theory problem: is this solution fine and sufficiently well written?

Determine all the positive integers $m$ such that both the ratios $$\frac{2(5^m+5)}{3^m+1}, \frac{9^m+1}{5^m+5}$$ are integers. Attempt to a solution: If the ratios are both integers, than their ...

### $E \to S$ surjective in degrees $\geq 1$ implies $\widetilde{E} \to \widetilde{S}$ surjective

In the proof of Theorem II.8.13 in Hartshorne (which is the Euler sequence), the author writes: Let $S = A[x_0, \ldots, x_n]$. [...] The exact sequence $$0 \to M \to E \to S$$ of graded ...

### Finitely additive function on an infinite set, s.t., $m(A)=0$ for any finite set and $m(X)=1$ (constructive approach)

Other exercise which I found in Dudley's Analysis book: Show that there is a measure on a infinite set $X$, defined on $2^X$ s.t. is finitely additive, $m(A)=0$ for any finite set and $m(X)=1$. ...

### Prove $(\overline{A \cap B}) \subseteq \overline{A} \cap \overline{B}$.

Let $\overline{A}$ be the closure of $A$. My attempt: Since $A \subseteq \overline{A}$ and $B \subseteq \overline{B}$, we have $$A \cap B \subseteq \overline{A} \cap \overline{B}.$$ Since ...

### Every tree has two leaves. Is my proof ok?

A tree is a connected acyclic graph. A leaf is a vertex of degree one. The distance $d(u,v)$ between two vertices $u$ and $v$ of a graph is the length of the shortest path from $u$ to $v$. Theorem. ...
I have to prove that the range $\mathcal{R}(T)$ of bounded linear operator $T:X\rightarrow Y$; $X,Y$ normed spaces need not be closed in $Y$. As a hint I'm given that I could consider ...
