comment Mathematical justification for incorporating a conditional event in expectation?
I think you have an error in the first line, since $E[S(N)] = E[N]E[X]$. Although I agree that $E[S(N)|N]=N\mu$.

@MichaelHardy it seems implicit that my answer below is not good, which is fine but please let me know where it falls short.

How does your lecturer define the joint distribution of one continuous and one discrete random variable?

In your second line, is $X$ uniform on $(0,1)$ or $\theta$?

comment Why do some authors write dx after integral sign?
I do not think the other questions really answer what mathematical idea the authors are trying to convey (rather than just convenience for iterated integrals). It could be that the integral is explicitly being expressed an operator?

comment Can a chain with repeated nodes still be considered a Markov chain?
In this spirit, I could also merge the node 1 (lower) and 3 into a single node, is that right?

comment Operator for scaling a function?
@T.A.E. the composition operator is incorrect as it does not achieve the task at hand. Perhaps I was ambiguous, but $\alpha$ is a constant real number.

Not really, we can assume continuity over the entire real line.
