comment Concerning the problem of finding the number of invertible nxn random {1,0} matrcies
I have, but I was wondering why can't we figure out an explicit solution (as opposed to finding the bounds) just like we have already for matrices over finite fields.

comment Stirling numbers of the second kind — a series-expansion typo?
Damn, you're right. I've been jumping between books as of late and it was only a matter of time before I forgot about some of his notation. And yes, it's been an amazing book so far. Every other page reminds me of those "one weird trick" scams except I am left satisfied.

comment Integrating 1/x
Sorry, I meant the constant term in the result of the indefinite integral. So in this case, $\ln |{a}|$

comment Integrating 1/x
Ah. Now I have another question I just realised I've never asked: can I just drop all our constant terms in our indefinite integral?

comment Differentiable functions without an antiderivative
Can you explain? I hate to be misinformed on the history. And on a side note Risch's algorithm would be solution , though I was hoping for something simpler...

comment Differentiable functions without an antiderivative
Yeah that's what I meant. I guess the follow up is, can we easily figure out when a function has no antiderivative? In your case of antifoiling it's easy to figure out, but say with the Gaussian integral, I honestly wouldn't have known that it was integrable with Gauss' good help.
