comment What are the most prominent uses of transfinite induction outside of set theory?
@CiaPan could you point me to a reference for that statement? Sounds intriguing..

I really like that you accepted Qiaochu's answer and then added the details in your own. Nice!

I salute you @Arkamis. For the original poster of the question, indeed, good job, keep it up! :)

comment maximal ideal of a polynomial ring
They are ideals, indeed. Just not maximal. Do you see why?

comment How to solve $tx'(t) = (2t^2 + 1)x(t) + t^2$?
Yes that's what I meant when saying $c = \sqrt(\pi)/2$. Still am clueless on how to proceed, I must shamefully admit.. Thanks for your help in any case! :)

comment How to solve $tx'(t) = (2t^2 + 1)x(t) + t^2$?
with a lot of work I was able to show the limit is bounded from above by 1/2 (or -1/2, I lost track of the sign). Since the function we're taking the limit of is increasing, this shows the limit exists.. But I am using $t \cdot \int_{t}^{t+k} e^{-x^2}dx < \int_{t}^{t+k} t \cdot e^{-x^2}dx $ and I cannot see any other way to do it without this strict inequality.. Could you give another hint on how to proceed?

Whoops I meant $-\sqrt(\pi)/2$ of course..

comment How to solve $tx'(t) = (2t^2 + 1)x(t) + t^2$?
Yes I guess $c$ should be $\sqrt(\pi)/2$ if we set $t_0 = 0$. I am trying out different approaches now to calculate this limit, but without success so far..

@Amzoti I just learned about the integrating factor, thanks for the reference! Is the thing I stumbled upon what you meant with "something seems wrong"?

@Amzoti , yes I just rechecked. It is question number 10 from mathematics.ceu.edu/sites/mathematics.ceu.hu/files/attachment/… if you want to take a look.
