### Around an inequality

I have a very general question, hopefully not too general. Assume that we have real numbers $a_{ij}, b_{ij}$ $(1 \leq i, \: j \leq n)$ such that $-1 \leq a_{ij}, b_{ij} \leq 1$ for all $i,j,$ for ...

### Solving $n \int_{\mathbb{R}}{\left|\frac{1}{n}\sum_{j=1}^n{e^{(itY_j)}}-e^{-\frac{1}{2}t^2}\right|^2}\psi(t)dt$

I have to solve $$n \int_{\mathbb{R}}{\left|\frac{1}{n}\sum_{j=1}^n{e^{(itY_j)}}-e^{-\frac{1}{2}t^2}\right|^2}\psi(t)dt$$ where $\psi(t)=(2\pi)^{-\frac{1}{2}}e^{-\frac{1}{2}t^2}$ is the density ...

### On the Newton Polygon for $p-$adic Power series

I'm studyng a Book about $p-$adic numbers, and I have troubles with a "degenerate" case of a Newton polygon. Let $f(X)=\sum a_{i}X^{i}\in\mathbb{Q}_{p}[\![X]\!]$, we define the Newton poligon of $f$ ...
