comment Derivatives and their domains
@Siminore: Do you have some other clues about the domains of (3)-(5)?

comment Derivatives and their domains
@Siminore: Yet one can argument that e.g. $\sqrt{\sqrt{-8}}$ leads to problems if we don't care about complex numbers (which are excluded in this excercise - I did forgot to mention this), or am I wrong here?

comment Determining limit points and proving there are no more of them
@TonyK: Oh I see the mistake - using the absolute value of $b_n$ always yields positive results which is no reason why $b_n$ should be bounded.

@TonyK: Could you give an example why this isn't true?

@DonAntonio: Yeah thats one issue here I would like to solve, too. Any help is appreciated.

comment Examination of convergence of a few series
After a break I will work through your comments and rethink my ideas. Thanks for your effort.

comment Examination of convergence of a few series
Concerning 5 I do not understand what you mean by saying the $k$-th term is positive - shouldn't that include something like "for every even k"? Furthermore does that mean the series does not converge absolutely?

@ThomasAndrews: $$\frac{1}{k+3+2/k}\geq \frac{1}{2}$$.

@ThomasAndrews: Does $1/2$ suffice?

comment Examination of convergence of a few series
@ThomasAndrews: Would it be correct to remove the sums and to just look at the sequences rather than the series?

Thank you so much - you do help me every time!

comment Cauchy product and the exponential function
WolframAlpha showed me that I should get $1/2\sin(2x)$ as a result, however the $4^n$ makes it difficult to derive the fact that I have to get $(2x)^{2n+1}$ and the $1/2$ in front of everything. This is what I want to know right now.

@BrianM.Scott: I have made another approach, may I ask you to have a look at it?

comment Cauchy product and the exponential function
@BrianM.Scott: Now I do understand this - do you have a hint (rather than the solution ;) ) for the second series for me?

comment Cauchy product and the exponential function
@BrianM.Scott: But you have $\sum_{n\ge 0}\frac{2^n}{n!}=(e-1)^2$ and that confuses me.

comment Cauchy product and the exponential function
@BrianM.Scott: I have a question. Your first result is $(e-1)^2$ but I think it should be $e^2$, shouldn't it?

comment Cauchy product and the exponential function
Thanks I will have a look at that now. @Cocopuffs: I think the indexes should start at 0 so I wrote an email to our TA but nevertheless I can learn that the hard way.

Actually I don't know, but now it seems comprehensible what you said.

comment Is a statement concerning the future part of a decidable problem?
@ThomasAndrews: Ah ok, one last question - is there any yes/no question which is NOT decidable?

@ThomasAndrews: What about a scenario where the monitored process will last infinite long?
