comment Raising a square matrix to the k'th power: From real through complex to real again - how does the last step work?
Thank you anyway. I agree, the last step is the crucial one. Btw: you have an extra "$" in the following line: "We rewrite this as..."

comment Question about direct sum of function space
I think what confuses me is that we start with $\mathbb R^3$ and end up with it. It would come more natural if we started with $\mathbb R$ and after taking the direct sum three times would end in $\mathbb R^3$.

WA-plot: wolframalpha.com/input/?i=Plot+%28-1%29^%28Floor%5B%28x%2F2+%2B+0.5%2‌​9%5D%29+Sqrt%5B1+-+%28x+-+2+Floor%5Bx%2F2+%2B+0.5%5D%29^2%5D - How did you find it?

comment Function for concatenated semicircles
I now remember that I stumbled upon this phenomenon when you iterate trig funcs: wolframalpha.com/input/… - perhaps this helps and can be combined with some of the other ideas here?!?

@Zev: I don't know how to fix this, but I think it goes into the right direction. Floor func is ok.

@jspecter: No, please no piecewise def. @Theo: Infinite sums are ok, I think even necessary for the nearly perpendicular inflection points (=infinite slope).

comment Throwing All Numbers From 2 to 12 With Two Dice
@crasic: You could reformulate it: On average, how many times must two 6-sided dice be rolled until all numbers from 2 to 12 appear at least once?

comment Throwing All Numbers From 2 to 12 With Two Dice
This sounds interesting. With one die its easy, see e.g. here: madandmoonly.com/doctormatt/mathematics/dice1.pdf p.9

comment Why is integration so much harder than differentiation?
Just for the record: Penrose discusses these matters on p. 103-120. Yet he gives no good reason why this is so (esp. for the symbolic case).
