comment Prove that $ S=\{0\}\cup\left(\bigcup_{n=0}^{\infty} \{\frac{1}{n}\}\right)$ is a compact set in $\mathbb{R}$.
Recall that you are in $\mathbb{R}$, so the compact sets are just the closed and bounded sets.

comment Prove $\int_2^\infty{\frac{\ln(t)}{t^{3/2}}},\mathrm{d}t$ converges
Oh I didn't see that about having to use comparison tests. I think there must be a better way then.

And that way you don't have to use Wolfram, the calculus student's succubus

Why do you need all that rigmarole about a comparison test? If we're evaluating it, just do it all the way, it's not hard. Then take a limit.

comment Richardson Extrapolation
@CatSensei, what book are you referring to? And where in it can the problem be found?

comment span set and min distance of a code
Whoever marked this as a duplicate does not understand the question. The question "span set and dimension of a code C" asks about the dimension of a code as a subspace, while this question asks about the Hamming distance of a code.

comment span set and min distance of a code
Are your $v_1, v_2, v_3$ vectors linearly independent? In other words, is $S$ a basis for $C$?
