comment Is there more than one way to divide the “L”-shaped tromino into four congruent, connected pieces?
This is nice if one wants an analysis of the tiling of the tromino by trominos, but that's not ultimately what the question is about. I'm asking if there is a tiling by another shape.

@StevenStadnicki I'm asking the second question. Perhaps I'll make an edit to make that more clear, thanks.

@Blue Very cool! Thanks for the terminology. I hope someone on math.SE is a rep-tile master.

@gideon Well thanks, especially since this caused me to look back at the answer and correct an error.

comment Complex distributions - what are the appropriate test functions?
@StephenMontgomery-Smith I wouldn't be surprised in the least, but I'd prefer to defer final judgement until I can be a bit more certain there's a mistake. Perhaps someone more familiar with CFT will someday have something definitive to say about this.

comment Complex distributions - what are the appropriate test functions?
@StephenMontgomery-Smith Yeah I'm strongly inclined to agree -- I have never heard of analytic test functions either. Nonetheless, the calculation I wrote down appears in at least the most well-known, standard conformal field theory text, so I'd like to make sense of it somehow.

comment Proving that a family of functions limits to the Dirac delta.
+1: This is great, thank you. I'm still hoping, however, that someone will be able to tell me how to make the approach that uses complex analysis work as a matter of interest.

comment Pure Point Spectrum implies Spanning Eigenfunctions
I think this would more appropriately be asked on math.SE.
