 Jan22 comment How to make recursive computation of $I_n=\int_0^1 \frac{x^n}{x+\alpha}\,dx$ stable? $I_n$ is supposed to be $\int_0^1 \frac{x^n}{x+\alpha}dx$ if it helps. $I_0$ is defined to be $\log \frac{1+\alpha}{\alpha}$ Jan22 asked How to make recursive computation of $I_n=\int_0^1 \frac{x^n}{x+\alpha}\,dx$ stable? Dec29 awarded Yearling Dec17 comment Monty hall problem extended. @Jaydles I don't know, people's intuitions are different. Two years ago, I saw that exact explanation, with a million doors rather than 100 (making it even more "obvious"). I still thought switching made no difference.

In Japanese the equivalent would translate as "WRT infinity, is 1 close or 10 close". Nov4 comment Is 10 closer to infinity than 1? @LarsH: English just sucks. Move along and use Lojban, or just almost any other language on the Earth that does not have two ways to parse almost all sentences. Nov3 awarded Popular Question Nov2 awarded Popular Question
