comment $\{(1), (12)(34), (13)(24), (14)(23)\}$ is the only non-cyclic proper subgroup of $A_4$?
If you show the above is the unique normal subgroup of order 4, then I think you are done.

comment Fourier transform of $\|x\|^{-n}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ with cut-off at $0$
This is equivalent to computing $\int_c^\infty \sin(x)/x dx$ after changing to spherical coordinates.

comment Resolution of equation such that $f(…f(x)…)=x$
Sorry, I actually think partition numbers come into play.

comment Resolution of equation such that $f(…f(x)…)=x$
Well, for composite $n$ you can construct factor solutions. Maybe if those are all the solutions for $n$ you can restate the problem as finding solutions for $f^{(p)}(x)=x$, $p$ prime.

comment Eigenvalues of a matrix with a concentric arrangement of coefficients
Doing Gaussian elimination to get an upper triangular matrix. I.e., an $LU$ decomposition, you'll get diagonal entries of $U$ as $d_1, d_2-d_1, d_3-d_2-d_1, \dots, d_n-d_{n-1}-\cdots-d_1$. Maybe there is a hint here of some diagonalization process?

comment Proof that $T: l^2 \rightarrow l^2$ is compact with $T(x) = \left(\frac{x_1}{1},\frac{x_2}{2},\dots\right)$
Continuous functions always map compact sets to compact sets. What it means for $T$ to be a compact operator is that any bounded set is mapped to a relatively compact set--i.e. a set whose closure is compact.
