Not sure if you read my answer pre-editing, it was pretty horendous, cleaned up now :)

comment math formulation of splitting intervals algorithm
Clearly you put a lot of effort into posing this question but the way it is presented isn't exactly clear, can you explain the rules very exactly one more time? For example if I wanted to explain the exponential sequence ( $2^n$ ) rule verbally I would say, you start with initial value 1, from then on the next term A_{n+1} is exactly 2 times the previous term A_{n}. For something more complex ($\frac{1}{2}n(n+1)$) I can very exactly state: The first term is 1, the next term $A_{n+1}$ = $A_{n} + A_{n-1} + A_{n-2} ... + 1$ or in other words the sum of all previous terms

comment What should an amateur do with a proof of an open problem?
@William I must disagree, as a high schooler ViXrA was my goto place for documenting work that I am continuing to develop. It offered me @ the time the piece of mind of "this idea has been publicly proven mine first" now I can share it without worry others may adapt for their own purposes. Obviously something like scribd also works but I wouldn't bash ViXrA so quickly, as a repository it does an excellent job, as a peer referred source of high quality material, no way!, but isn't that obviously not its job today even if original intent when it was created?

was hoping OP could derive that independently but I suppose this comment^ will make this post more useful to others in the future :)

comment Consending logic gates
your parenthesis are still ambiguous do you mean (A & B) or (B & C & (B or C)), or do you mean A & (B or B & C & (B or C)), or do you mean etc...

comment Can a fraction be simplified like this?
@Deepak that can be generalized even further to: given a function $f(x)$ and a set of values $Q$ that can be produced by plugging in an algebraic number $x$ into $f$ and/or $w$ that produces an algebraic number when plugged into $f$, one should opt to test with a number $u$ that exists outside this group. That way even with funky sines and cosines where certain transcendental constants lead to "fortuitous equality" we know to avoid them

comment Differential equation $\sin \theta \frac{dr}{d \theta}+r\cos \theta =\tan \theta,0<\theta<\pi/2$
show us what you have tried plz? Its part of the rules of posting here, even if the work is wrong you might be super close and an answer could be something as simple as "double check line 12" and boom you got it right. Showing work also makes us as the conditional-humans we are feel good since its like an even trade, detailed question for detailed answer

comment Finding the asymptotes of a general hyperbola
Built in libraries are an option, the other more work intensive option is to basically use if-else to identify if the dy/dx and dx/dy expressions are even defined (think about what happens if A or B or C etc... = 0 to cover all cases) if they are defined its easy to find the limits (L'Hopitals rule by hand will make it pretty obvious what needs to be coded), for the second part finding the limit can just involve increasing $x$ (or y) for expression $y(x) - mx$ to compute a difference $d_i$ and then pick a desired level of accuracy, w, break program and return when $|d_{i+1} - d_i| < w$
