comment Optimal bandwidth for histogram density estimator
First, using all capital letters in your heading is considered shouting - thus rude. Second you might rephrase your question as a request rather than a command.

comment Mathematics books that tell you what is really happening?
In that you mentioned V. Arnold, coincidentally, I was looking at Prof. Giventhal's (Berkeley) home page for a CA course he is giving and saw this tribute to his teacher which I thought you would like to see: math.berkeley.edu/~giventh/arnold_en.pdf

comment Big-$O$ for $\frac{1}{1-x}$
Thanks, you are right, I had noticed my mistake in the consistency of the exponents; but should have fixed it as you suggest rather than as I did. Also please forgive me, while you answer is certainly excellent, the other responder came first, so I feel I should accept his answer. This aspect is always uncomfortable. With regards,

comment Why are there four solutions to $x^2-2x-8=0$ in $\mathbb{R}$? Or am I wrong?
Well, crash certainly improved things, yet you might further consider changing "we" to "I"

comment Why are there four solutions to $x^2-2x-8=0$ in $\mathbb{R}$? Or am I wrong?
Typically, for example on an exam, when you get what you think is a solution to a quadratic equation, it is easy to check your result by substitution. Had you done that and had that realization, you might have phrased your question a bit more responsibly - such as "Flaw in my reasoning" rather than as you did.

comment Introductory Group theory textbook
@RespawnedFluff Thanks for your opinion. Yes, it is a pain to have to flip around. Unfortunately I find a lot of kindle math books have lots of typos due to notational issues. Sometimes I have spent too much time trying to untangle them, and a look at a print edition comes to the rescue. However, I think we would both agree that the prices of math book are obscene, and "Artin" in particular. Regards,
