comment Abuse of notation in declaring a variable is a function of another?
This is an intersting idea; how does $y = y \circ id_{X}$ solve the problem? Are you saying that $y$ is a function on the both sides, and that $y(x) = (y \circ id_X) (x)$ for all $x$ (i.e is this a statement of equivalence, rather than assignment)?

comment Notation for a statistic, or function of a random variable
Thank you. This is a point which confuses me to no end in the literature. I usually can understand the author's meaning from context, but when thinking formally about the underlying mathematical objects I end up hopelessly lost.

Does that mean $S$ is not a statistic? It is a function on real numbers, not random outcomes.

comment 3 Variables, One Equation
Try this idea: $x(x-7) + y(y-7) + z(z-7) = 0$. This has 56 integer solutions. Its a sphere.

comment Abstract Integration in Elementary Probability Theory
Thank you. I understand the technical definitions of integration of $X$ with respect to $\mathbb{P}$. When $X$ has a density $f$, the expectation $\int_{x \in Im(X)} x f(x)dx$ is commonly explained as a weighted sum of the values $x$ that $X$ can take, where the value $f(x)dx$ is the probability that $X$ is in the neighborhood of $x$, or approximately $\mathbb{P}(X \in [x, x+dx])$
