comment Consecutive strings of heads problem
Your attempt (what follows "So far I have") is hard to understand. Perhaps you should try to edit it to make it clear

comment Entropy of sum of uniform random variables on a simplex
You have already asked the same question some months ago math.stackexchange.com/questions/1428142/…

comment A sequence of continuous functions which is pointwise convergent to zero and not uniformly convergent on any interval.
The remark you quote looks interesting, but I don't see how that could work. If we add the "spikes" , then the sum diverges.

comment Conditional entropy and independent conditioning variables
As I tried to explain, in your case $H(X|Y=y,Z=z)$ are the same but $H(X|Y,Z)$ are not.

comment Conditional entropy and independent conditioning variables
The first paragraph looks contradictory. What does $(Y,Z) \sim (Y',Z')$ mean? Perhaps you mean that the marginals are equal? Then you should write $Y\sim Y'$ and $Z \sim Z'$

comment Number of ways to partition $40$ balls with $4$ colors into $4$ baskets
For the record: I implemented the generation in Java (ugly), and the values (up to $N=10$ at least) coincide.

comment Mutual information $I((X,Y,Z);A)$ larger for small pairwise mutual informations $I(X;Y), I(X;Z), I(Y;Z)$?
You seem to assume that $I(X;Y)=1$ is a maximum. Why? Are you assuming binary (Bernoulli) variables?

Further, why is letter $b$ used (in the diagram and the equations) for two different things? Some typo?
