comment Why does the harmonic series diverge but the p-harmonic series converge
In addition to the answers here, it is possible that the answers to this question can provide some insight.

comment How I convert Decimal Using negetive Base 2?
Erratum: I just noticed that I wrote $k$ where it should be $q$. I will refrain from editing the answer in order to avoid bumping the question to the front page.

comment Trouble with finding the limit of this sequence
By the way, there are problems when $x$ is irrational and $\sin x<0$. What does $(\sin x)^x$ mean then?

comment Trouble with finding the limit of this sequence
When $x$ is an integer multiple of $\pi$, the sum is zero, so the answer certainly can't be $1/3$. On the other hand, when $x=(2k+\frac12)\pi$, $\sin x=1$. Your strict inequalities are certainly wrong then! The existence of such $x$ would indicate that, if you replace the outer limit by a limit superior, you could get the supposed answer.

comment spectral radius
Yep. I suggest you write it up as an answer and accept it. I am too lazy (it's bedtime in my corner of the world). And we don't like unanswered questions lying around.

comment $\liminf_n a_n = \inf_n a_n$ if $a_n \ge a_m$ when $n\mid m$
Yeah, your best bet would be an exercise where the object is to learn how $\liminf$ works.

comment spectral radius
What is the spectral radius of $\left(\begin{smallmatrix}0&1\\0&0\end{smallmatrix}\right)$? Oh, and for the triangle inequality, try $x=\left(\begin{smallmatrix}0&1\\0&0\end{smallmatrix}\right)$ and $y=\left(\begin{smallmatrix}0&0\\1&0\end{smallmatrix}\right)$!

comment $\liminf_n a_n = \inf_n a_n$ if $a_n \ge a_m$ when $n\mid m$
I took the liberty of editing the question title. I was unable to make sense of it after reading it several times, mainly because I was reading it as one implication, where the left side made no sense. Hope that's ok. – I suspect a reference will be hard to find; as you say, the result is very easy, and I imagine it is rarely used.

comment How to find $\int_0^1 \int_x^1 \arctan(\frac{y}{x})dxdy$?
What kind of calculus course (or text) will even pose such a problem without teaching about different orders of integration first? That surprises me.

comment How to find $\int_0^1 \int_x^1 \arctan(\frac{y}{x})dxdy$?
Have you tried inverting the order of the integrals?

comment Functions with rank $n$.
Wait, I forgot a subtle point. You must rule out the minimum being on the boundary of the ball. At a minimum on the boundary, you can't know that $Dg=0$. But considering the value of $\|f(0)\|$ shows that this case cannot happen.

comment Functions with rank $n$.
You have the right idea, but taking norms/absolute value isn1t right, for the norm of a matrix product (or a matrix-vector product) is usually not the product of the norms. Instead, go back to $Dg=0$ (yes, that must hold at a minimum) and notice that the invertibility of $Df$ implies $f=0$ at the minimum. And then you're done.

comment Functions with rank $n$.
No, $g$ is a scalar function, so its derivative should be a vector (i.e., the gradient), not a matrix. Write $g=\sum_{k=1}^n f_k^2$, where $f=(f_1,\ldots,f_n)$ and then take partial derivatives. Express the result as a vector; you should get a product of $Df$ and a vector. (Or just take partial derivatives of the scalar product $f\cdot f$ directly, if the resulting algebra doesn't intimidate you.)

comment Is there any commonality between Math induction and Logic induction?
And to the OP: No, the two concepts are quite different. Apart from the name there is a certain superficial similarity, but that seems to dissipate once you look closer.

comment Is there any commonality between Math induction and Logic induction?
@GitGud The induction mentioned in the video is certainly not reasoning by mathematical probability, although I suppose Bayesian thinking could aid such induction. He's really talking about inductive reasoning in the philosophical sense of arguing from special cases to the general.
