I have a B.A. in Mathematics from the University of Chicago. I am starting a Ph.D. in Linguistics on September 2014 in the same university.

Thank you! I will try to extend this as much as possible and provide links to other resources too. Did you check the one suggested in the update I made?

comment Definite Integral with a discontinuty
I don't think the problem is the discontinuity itself, but rather the fact that the integrand seems to blow up at $x = 0$.

comment Differential Equation : $f '' = f '$
You are indeed correct to point out that flaw. But that does not mean the proof is not rigorous. It only means that there is one more case to be checked. I will add it.

comment Differential Equation : $f '' = f '$
That's impossible! The first derivative will be some number but the second will be 0. How are they working?

Thank you for pointing that out! Thanks @Chris Taylor for editing the solution.
