I must say I like the analysis.

@mixedmath Yup half-scale rectangle puts the point better.

I guess I should have noticed it before. :-/

@Fabian Yup, I am more interested in how to approach these problems.

comment $L_{2}$ norm of the gradient of a vector valued function.
You are correct, Silly me. Sorry for the bother.

comment $L_{2}$ norm of the gradient of a vector valued function.
Yeah I meant that too, I was talking about its norm.

comment $L_{2}$ norm of the gradient of a vector valued function.
@Brhn What is the context of the problem? Is there any more information you can provide?

comment $L_{2}$ norm of the gradient of a vector valued function.
I know your answer is assuming things due to lack of information from the OP, but as I guess the the "gradient" is basically a jacobian matrix between the two sets of variables and hence its norm must be the Frobenius norm or a spectral norm of a matrix. I am not sure though.

comment Additive quotient group $\mathbb{Q}/\mathbb{Z}$ is isomorphic to the multiplicative group of roots of unity
I will say every $\mathbb{Q/Z}$ is isomorphic to $X = \left\{x : x \in [0,1] \text{ and }x \in \mathbb{Q} \right\}$

comment Prove that $(n+\sqrt{n^2 -1})^k$ will always be of the form$ (t+\sqrt{t^2 -1})$ where $n$, $k$, $t$ are natural numbers
@RajeshKSingh: Do you remember where you found it? There might be something more to it.

comment Show $\lim_{h \to 0} \frac{f(h)+f(-h)}{h^2}=f''(0)$
@Ranabir: Yes, you can write $f''(0)=\lim_{h \to 0} \frac{f'(0)-f'(-h)}{h}$. This is because, $f''(0)$ is said to exist only when both the right and left hand limits exists and are equal to each other.

@LeoIzen: $R(t)$ is a constant?

comment Solving for $v$ in $v'(t) + R(t)\cdot v^{2/3}=J(t)$
I edited your answer to make the hyperlinks appear pretty so that it is easier to read and does not take focus away from your answer. :-)

comment What does “$f$ is a function on $S$” mean?
I am guessing the exact expression of $f$ will provide image.

comment What does “$f$ is a function on $S$” mean?
$S$ is a domain. The codomain is any superset of the image of $S$ under $f$.
