I'm an undergraduate Engineering/Mathematics Student down in Brisbane, Australia. Interested in learning as much as I possibly can about maths, particularly the ideas/constructions/history/motivation behind the classic undergraduate concepts.

comment Weakly converges to exponential distribution with parameter 1
see if you can show it for the interval $[0,1]$ first. Also what's the use of defining $g_n$?

comment Would nonmath students be able to understand this?
Cantor's argument is fun to explain - I remember someone explained it to me years before I knew about any formal set theory. They explained the need for bijections in terms of two tribes (who could only count to 100) trying to determine who has the largest herd (when each herd is far bigger than 100). I'll let you think about that :P
