### Which smooth compactly supported functions are convolutions?

If $f,g$ are smooth functions with support in the interval $[-r,r]$ for some $r>0$, then their convolution $f*g$ is smooth with support in $[-2r,2r]$. My question is about the converse: Given ...

### Extensibility of real analytic function of several variables to complex domain

My question relates to the extensibility of a real analytic function of several variables to a specific complex domain. In order to formulate the question, let me define the following complex ...

### The functional equation of Hofstadter's Q sequence

Hofstadter's Q sequence is defined by $Q(1) = Q(2) = 1$ and $Q(n) = Q(n-Q(n-1)) + Q(n-Q(n-2))$ for $n \geq 3$. So far hardly anything on this sequence has been proved -- not even that $Q(n)$ is ...

### on completeness of R_mn, the set of all rational functions of type (m,n)

It is known from finite dimensionality of $P_r$, the space of all polynomials of degree less than or equal to $r$, that $P_r$ is complete with respect to uniform norm. Considering ...

### Boundedness of an Oscillating Integral

Let $g(x):\mathbb{R}_{\geq0}\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$ be real analytic s.t. $g(0)\neq 0$ and $g(x)=O(x^{-2})$ as $x\rightarrow\infty$. I think the following integral should be bounded as ...

### Seeking a Geometric Proof of a Generalized Alternating Series' Convergence

Let $z \in \mathbb{C} \backslash \lbrace 1 \rbrace$ with $|z| = 1$. We consider the following infinite series, which necessarily converges: $$S(z) := \sum_{n = 1}^{\infty}\frac{z^n}{n}$$ Note that ...

### What's the use of Malgrange preparation theorem?

The Malgrange preparation theorem,which is the $C^{\infty}$ version of the classical Weierstrass preparation theorem,says that if $f(t,x)$ is a $C^{\infty}$ function of $(t,x)\in\mathbb{R}^{n+1}$ near ...

### In Fourier Transforms: Positive Definite Functions, Bochner's Theorem, and Derivatives

I've been reading about Bochner's Theorem lately, but when I apply it to the derivative of a function, I seem to get a contradiction with the theorem. "Bochner's theorem states that a positive ...

### How well do continuously differentiable functions behave from R^2 to R^2 ?

The behaviour of complex smooth vs 1-dimensional real smooth functions is discussed in a previous question. In "Complex Analysis as Catalyst" by Steven G. Krantz, the Cauchy integral formula is ...

### Conformal Extension from a closed set to open

Let $Q = \{(x,y): x,y\geq 0\}$ be the 1st quadrant of $\mathbb R^2$, and $f$ is a function defined on it such that all the partial derivative(any order) of $f$ exists and continuous. By Whitney ...

### Monotonicity of a certain parametric integral

I would like to ask for some help (hints, ideas) in solving the following problem: Given integer $n>0$ and real $\alpha>0,\beta>1$ we want to show, that if we define for any ...

### What is this effect in Fourier/additive synthesis called?

Hi, I have re-synthesized a cyclic function additively, and I added a fixed offset to the frequency of each partial. So if the function was $\sum a_{n} sin(2 \pi x * n)$ and its frequencies were ...
Hi, Let $\mathbb{N}_{cop}^2$ denote the set of all pairs of coprime natural numbers. A function $f:\mathbb{C}\rightarrow\mathbb{C}$ is called asymptotically multiplicative, iff ...
