How does one justify funding for mathematics research?
I find the motif "unreasonable effectiveness" a sleight of hand. What's so unexpected about the products of an intelliigence embedded in and evolving with the world being useful in dealing with that world? Cf. Philosophy in the Flesh. |

How does one justify funding for mathematics research?
There's a visceral aspect to doing mathematics for many if not most mathematicians (Thurston comes to mind) that can imbue their lives wtth meaning, a sense of purpose, a calling, a passion, a depth. When we talk about saving lives, we should not forget to consider for what kind of life. We underwrite religion, sports, the arts, and other endeavors that can give meaning, direction, a centering in the chaos or inane that might otherwise engulf us, so given the resources why not support exploratory math? |

Cavalieri's principle and inversion of the Vandermonde matrix
I deleted my MO answer containing the inverse matrix for the Vandermonde matrix, but will present it again in some notes at my website/petite-arxiv on the Vandermonde matrix in construction. |

Btw, the Lang reference in my answer with proofs of Qiaochu's and Zurab's assertions came from the OEIS entry. |
