comment Earth population growth rate is exponential or logarithmic?
just realised the quadratic passing trough the 3 points might not match the function for that interval, if it did then we'd know that segment is a quadratic. is there a way to know that within a recent history the population growth is exponential or logarithmic or quadratic?

imagine a monotonically increasing function, starting from 0, as we move along the function, if there are we pass 3 points that are on a straight line then we know we are on a lineaer function, if 3 points are not linear then we can find a quadratic passing through all the 3 points.what do we need to know that the segment is logarithmically increasing or exponentialy increasing?

not trying to model. Just trying to get a feel that for example the past 5 years matches exponential growth. but how many individual points I need to say that near past trend matches logarithmic or exponential ? only recent past data (i am leaving out the definition of recent past)

why is this true for square and not triangle?

comment When can a function be represented by an infinite nested radical, a la a Taylor series?
good question. not sure if the book modern analysis had anything related

comment Prove that the n-sphere equals Euclidean n space plus a point at infinity
+1 for "Stereographic projection works in every dimension" info. was that something you learned or something you realised yourself? just wondering about it's origin.

comment Closed Form for sum $\sum^{\infty}_{n=1} \frac{1}{3^n+n}$
solve has a different meaning, What i know is not important, i can not prove what i said, so i really should have not said it. In my unproved opinion is too ugly to have a closed form, but math is not about opinions.

there is nothing to solve, there is not a simple form

@Travis , if you could put your two comments into an answer i can accept it. was about to ask how to generate such things next :) you preempted my question

yep, the second one, was that obvious to you?
