comment Is $\textrm{d}x \in \mathbb{R}$?
@user89: I think in part because too many books have been written using standard analysis and too many people have been trained in standard analysis. It would be too hard to throw all those books aside and teach all those people the non-standard approach. Same reason helps explain why Windows is the dominating O.S: you cannot just get rid of all the old programs written for windows and it is not practical to retrain everyone to learn a new O.S.

For dx as an infinitesimal, it depends on whether the property described is a first-order property, so we can apply the "transfer principle" and elementary equivalence, i.e., the Hyperreals are elementary equivalent to the standard Reals.

comment How does $ln(y) = 2x+C$ become $y = e^{2x+C}$?
In other words, $e^y$ and $lny$ are inverses of each other with the needed restriction of domains.

comment Exact interpretration of p-value and significance of test
It is always an issue of plausibility; you can never reach absolute certain, but it is more plausible/likely , given the sample data and the distribution, that the mean is actually 100.

But the number of observations is factored in the p-value already.

comment Exact interpretration of p-value and significance of test
Phrasing is confusing. I would say we conclude/assume the mean is 100, but we cannot be 100% sure that this is the case.

comment Exact interpretration of p-value and significance of test
Right, then you do not reject. But you do not conclude the mean is 100; the sample data may have been either unrepresentative or made up of outliers. You can only conclude that under assumptions (which you cannot guarantee) of data being representative (not outliers ) and randomly-selected, the claim is true.

comment $f: \mathbb{R}^2 \to \mathbb{R}$ is a continuously differentiable function (of class $C^1$). Show that mapping f can not be one-to-one mapping.
Are you assuming there is a local homeomorphism in order to use this argument?

O.K, so we agree ;).

Sorry to nitpick, but then it is (pairwise) disjoint, not distinct.
