comment Given a collection of items, how many ordered subsets can I make?
@AvatarOfChronos: To add on to Moron's comment, you can right-click any existing formulas and click 'show source' to see how to write something similar, or see your edited question. For more details, see the proposed faq.

comment fast and reliable method for testing invertibility of Hermitian Toeplitz matrix
See also Mathworld and Wikipedia's descriptions of the condition number. If you are using some linear algebra library, note that many calculate the reciprocal of the condition number by default.

comment Direct proof that f(x)=x sin(1/x) does not satisfy Lusin N condition
@Myke: I believe \sout requires the ulem package, which is not installed. The html way is to use <s>text</s> (or <strike>text</strike>)

comment How can I pack $45-45-90$ triangles inside an arbitrary shape ?
What Moron stopped short of saying outright is that you can lay your image on top of a square grid, then shade in all squares that are part of the shape (filled or >half filled, for small enough squares it doesn't matter), and bisect them to get the triangles you want. I don't write this as an answer because although it answers your question as written, I think it also suggests some clarifying edits you may wish to make to bring it closer to your 'real' question.

Since @Bill created a meta-question, let's keep the discussion of whether to close or not there.
