comment Why do proof authors use natural language sentences to write proofs?
@artem But that's partly the beauty of a non-formal proof! If you understand the proof, seeing that "showing that $2p-n>0$ is necessary" is straighforward. And if you don't understand the proof, adding this information wouldn't help.

comment Why is the absolute sign needed in the definition of a bounded function
Well, or that $f(\operatorname{def} f)$ is a bounded set? :)

comment Dividing tournament into “equal” groups
The world tournament is well established in the graph theory, and is connected to "each plays each" type of a game: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tournament_%28graph_theory%29

comment Is this enough to prove a homeomorphism? — inverse on a dense subset
Yeah, I just realized that the problem is eventually simple, and all that needs to be said is that continuous image of a compact is a compact. Thanks for your help anyways for sure!

@JohnZHANG Sorry I was not clear. I do have a proof that in my particular case, the 3rd item is true.

comment Questions related to maximal ideals
Well, I have seen a definition of a unity in a ring as a non-zero element, which means that the zero ring is then a ring without unity. I know this is strange, but it is exactly for the reason that zero ring is too weird to be a unit ring.

Mathematica forever? Not quite in this case :p

comment Fundamental Theorem of Calculus application
It would be wise not to use $x$ for two different variables, it is very confusing.

comment If $A$ is dense in $S$ and $S$ is dense in $T$ , then $A$ is dense in $T$
@KyleStrand Because \bar goes before A, not after that. There's actually a red nothing after the 2nd \bar showing that an argument is missing. The correct thingy is: $\bar S \subseteq \bar A$. And I get your point. Just somehow, you can change balls to "bubbles" (arbitrarily shaped open sets) and it's the same, still keeping the idea behind. And you can even draw it like that without any need of letters -- isn't that cool? :)

comment If $A$ is dense in $S$ and $S$ is dense in $T$ , then $A$ is dense in $T$
@KyleStrand The point is that you first derive that $S\subset \bar A$ implies $\bar S\subset \bar A$, which is a nice, simple and completely general statement, and is somehow the core of the proof. And now, you only use this very general statement, rather than fiddling with complicated stuff as $\epsilon-d(t,s)$, from which, no true idea can be observed.

comment If $A$ is dense in $S$ and $S$ is dense in $T$ , then $A$ is dense in $T$
@KyleStrand I don't like this because it assumes a metrizable space. And while direct and "elementary", it doesn't catch the points at all, IMHO.

@Martín-BlasPérezPinilla Damn, my fault. Sorry for that.

comment Proof my by mathematical induction $\sum_{i=1}^{n} \frac{(-1)^{i-1}}{i} > 0 $
Hello, is really your summand independent of $i$? Because currently the sum evaluates to $(-1)^{n-1}$, which is not always positive...

comment Are $10\times 10$ matrices spanned by powers of a single matrix?
+1 Indeed a very nice proof by contradiction.
