comment Proving that $\frac{\pi ^2}{p}\neq \sum_{n=1}^{\infty }\frac{1}{a_{n}^2}$
What are the $a(n)$? Are you asking to prove that no sequence of positive integers can have this as result?

revised does $\int_0^\infty x/(1+x^2 \sin^2x) \mathrm dx$ converge or diverge?
Perhaps this is a better presentation of the proof's logic

comment “Negative” versus “Minus”
Why is this question protected and not closed as off-topic? It could well fit to Mathematics Education site, but not here in my opinion.

comment Why is $Z_2 \times Z_3 \times Z_4$ not isomorphic to $Z_{24}$?
Do 2 and 4 share no common factor?

comment How would you show that $\sqrt{14+4\sqrt{10}} - \sqrt{14-4\sqrt{10}} = 4$?
Nice. One could also prove first that (for $0<b<a$) this is true: $ \sqrt{a + b +- 2\sqrt a \sqrt b} = \sqrt a +- \sqrt b $ and then use it with $a=10$ and $b=4$

comment Does $A193201$ count the partitions of $n$ of arbitrary dimension?
I get 14 for n=6. I might have not understood what exactly we are counting. This?: A119268

comment Examples of mathematical discoveries which were kept as a secret
@DavidRicherby I think you could add it as a separate answer. While belonging to the same area (security/cryptography), it is a different discovery.

I don't think there is a closed formula for T(n,m).

I think the answer is 17952, let me check a few things.

The smallest I found to need a power of 10 are: 799 = 2^10 - 3^2 * 5^2 and 851 = 3 * 5^4 - 2^10

comment Prove $\left|\frac{z_1}{z_2}\right|=\frac{|z_1|}{|z_2|}$ for two complex numbers
Where did that square root come from? Can't you use that |z| = r when z = r(cosθ+isinθ)?

comment Proving two graphs are isomorphic in polynomial time - Bondy/Murty - Graph Theory Page 6
It works without a hitch because the graph has a lot of symmetries (self isomorphisms). I think you could identify any 5-cycle with any other (as a start) and it will work.

comment A geometric assembly: Triangle, circle, square, pentagon.
I think I've seen somewhere the second problem about the inverse and I vaguely remember the value 12 as limit.

@RyanYu Then edit the title of your question.

comment Is this a isomorphism $(\mathbb Z,+) \to (Z,+)$ where $\varphi(n) = 2n$? Why not?
You are missing that there is no n such as φ(n)=1. Or φ(n)=3. So, the image of φ is not Z but a subset. You say " for every element in Z in the first group there is a element 2n in the second group." Right. But for every element y in Z in the second group is there is an element n in the first group such as φ(n)=y?

comment Solving $p_1^{e_1} p_2^{e_2}…p_k^{e_k}=e_1^{p_1} e_2^{p_2}…e_k^{p_k}$
@Tom-Tom I'm not sure but I see 4 or 5 adjacent related seqeunces, so I guess no. The "last modified" footer seems to in all OEIS sequences.
