mixedmath April 23, 2017 at 7:09 am on Slides from a Dissertation DefenseThanks John! The data is from Math Genealogy (which is amazing). I scraped this data with python and created a (data structure) graph. I added and edited some data by hand, such as creating the pairings between the married couples. Then I converted this graph into the DOT language specification, and used graphviz to create the graph itself. Finally I ---

David Lowry-Duda March 11, 2017 at 6:02 pm on Smooth Sums to Sharp Sums 1The short answer is "no", I think. Without some additional structure, there shouldn't be any "free" way of handling the intermediary region if the sign structure is random. I think we can recognize a limit of the method to understanding $latex \sum_{X < n < X + X/Y} a(n) v(n/X)$ for some general coefficients $latex a(n)$ in the following weak ---
Alex Walker March 11, 2017 at 10:47 am on Smooth Sums to Sharp Sums 1Of note, if the coefficient series is not positive it becomes a lot more irritating to bound the intermediary region where the sharp cutoff is dying out. Do you know of any results that handle this region in a general setting?

Deepak Suwalka September 27, 2016 at 11:36 am on Notes from a talk on the Mean Value TheoremThanks, It's a good blog. I like the way you have described the mean value theorem. it's really appreciable. but if you proved some examples and problems than it will be a great post.
chaitanya pathak September 4, 2016 at 9:35 pm on An intuitive introduction to calculusThis article is the best in the entire Internet. And not just this every article I've read in this website is so much interesting that my dead interest in Calculus was born once again. This website is way better than Wikipedia or any other website I've ever visited. Thanks for simple and understandable article.
reuns August 4, 2016 at 3:56 pm on AboutCome on mr so called moderator, read it http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/1880605/elementary-ways-to-show-zeta-1-1-12/1880630 and read what I wrote on MSE the last week, and look at : who annoyed me, who insulted me, and end asking yourself : isn't it normal after that he is upset, having helped so many people on MSE ?
jeremy May 26, 2016 at 9:26 pm on An Intuitive Overview of Taylor SeriesThank you so much for the fast reply, it makes sense now. And again, great job with this article. I've always thought this is how math should be taught; intuition and motivation for definitions first, then rigor and proofs. Wish I'd had you as a math teacher :)
Hey David,
My test 3 grade still doesn’t have the extra 9 points added! Could you update it on T-Square? I emailed you about it yesterday.
Thanks!
