I am a math professor at the University of Puget Sound. My background is in operations research, and I teach typical OR courses such as optimization, modeling, and probability, as well as calculus, statistics, and differential equations.

My math blog, A Narrow Margin, includes (among other things) discussion of some of my favorite posts - of mine and of others - from math.SE.

comment Does exceptionalism persist as sample size gets large?
I had to do the transformation by hand to verify it, but you are correct. Nice observation! For the record, the Mudholkar, Chaubey, and Tian paper does not mention that $\log Z - \log Y$ has that simpler form.

revised Triple Euler sum result $\sum_{k\geq 1}\frac{H_k^{(2)}H_k }{k^2}=\zeta(2)\zeta(3)+\zeta(5)$

comment Double Euler sum $ \sum_{k\geq 1} \frac{H_k^{(2)} H_k}{k^3} $
The Borwein and Girgensohn paper proves that the answer to your question is "Yes" for certain values of $a$, $b$, and $c$. That paper is nearly 20 years old, though, and the state of the art may have improved since then.

I just spent two hours typesetting this, and I'm tired of looking at it. If you spot any typos, let me know, and I'll fix them when I get the chance.

comment What's the name of this quantity?
FYI, the quantity $\operatorname{dist}(\sigma)$ is called Spearman's footrule distance.
