 Aug 16 comment Rewrite sinc function No, not valid - sinc is not translation invariant. Jul 20 answered $L^p$ and $\ell^p$ spaces Jul 20 comment How to prove that $e^x$ is convex? That's great and actually does not rely on derivative arguments: A function $f$ is convex if for every $x$ there exists $c$ such that for all $y$ it holds $f(y) \geq f(x) + c(y-x)$. You showed that $c=e^x$ works. This does not only show that $f$ is convex but also that $e^x$ is a subgradient of $\exp$ at $x$.) Jul 20 comment How does the Vitali set violate the definition of measurable sets? @avid19 The other argument goes more into the direction of the basic problem of measure. It shows that the unit interval can be partitioned into a countable number of sets that are basically cyclic translations of the Vitali sets and hence, there can be no countable additive and translation invariant measure for the Vitali set and the unit interval.

Jul 7 comment Number of elements in a finite $\sigma$-algebra The link is broken… Jul 6 comment Operator Norm and Submultiplicativity against the Spectral Norm Actually, the notion of operator norm depends of the chosen norms in the domain and the co-domain of the operator. Jun 16 comment Please help: My MATLAB code for solving a 2D Schrödinger equation keep giving me weird output. Probably the wrong forum… scicomp could be better. Anyway, the effect you see is due to a not well chosen discretization of the derivatives. Your dx and dy only use every other point and not the neighbouring point. Generally, the Laplace operator is div after grad and should be implemented as dx'*dx, i.e. using the adjoint derivative. In practice that means that you first use forward differences and then backward differences, ending up with a filter like [1 -2 1]/h^2. Jun 2 reviewed Close confusing probability question - help!

May 14 answered About window function May 11 comment Continuity of $\frac{1}{|x|}$ at $x= 0$ You only need continuity at a single point and only get that. Your answer is totally, btw… May 11 comment Continuity of $\frac{1}{|x|}$ at $x= 0$ More precisely: if $f$ is continuous at $x$ and $f(x)\neq 0$, then $1/f$ is continuous at $x$.
