comment Does $\int_0^\infty e^{-x}\sqrt{x}dx$ converge?
If in the integral it were x, rather than Sqrt[x], the integral would be the mean of the exponential distribution with parameter 1, which is known to have value 1. You can easily do that with integration by parts. Then, since Sqrt[x]<x, the value of the given integral has to be less than 1.

comment Show $\lim_{n \to \infty} n^{-1} E \left( \frac{1}{X}1_{[X>n^{-1}]} \right) =0$
Suspect the key here is that P[X<∞]=1

comment $P(X_n < a$ i.o. and $X_n > b$ i.o.$) = 0$ for all $a < b$ implies that $lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} X_n$ exists a.e.
Now I'm happy! Thanks!

Should it be x_n_1<a?

Not sure if I understand what you are saying here. Let x_n=7 for all n. So lim x_n=7. But there exists an 'a' in Q such that a<x_n for infinitely many n. For example, a=2. So by your statement lim x_n does not exist.

comment Proof of $\sigma^2\geq (\mu-m)^2$ without resorting to Jensen's or Chebychev's inequality.
Can you pls explain why is P[X<=m]>=1/2?

answered Prove that: if $x \sqcup \bar{y}=1$, then $x \sqcup y=x$ (in a Boolean algebra)

comment How do I differentiate polynomials
If you dont like your text,try another one. Or en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calculus#Differential_calculus to get started.

comment Suggested book for self study.
I really like the 4 volume series by Stein & Shakarchi. Fourier stuff, Complex Analysis, Measure theory, Functional analysis. But, your background will determine if they are suitable for self-study.

comment Basic probability limit problem
Since the mean=0, it exists, and is the integral of xg(x) over R. Now assume the limit doesnt hold...could the integral still be zero?

comment Are upper division math courses textbook- or lecture-based?
I view the teacher as a very experienced tour guide. They point out the interesting parts, explain the difficult parts, show what is important. But it is (always) up to you to do the work.

Been there, done that. Glad it helped.

comment Show Wright-Fisher Model is a martingale
wouldn't that just be a binomial distribution? and what is the mean of a binomial distribution? (Note I am asking - i could be wrong)

comment Division of two random variables of uniform distributions
Just to try out Mathematica's probability framework: D[Probability[ x/y <= z, {x [Distributed] UniformDistribution[{0, 1}], y [Distributed] UniformDistribution[{1, 3}]}], z] yields (for the pdf) 2 if z<1/3, (6-2z)/(4z)-(-z^2+6z-1)/(4z^2) if 1/3<z<1 and 0 elsewhere.
