Proving “almost all matrices over C are diagonalizable”.
Or you could simply upper-triangularize your matrix and do the same. |

Improving a sequence of 1s and -1s
Quick question: does the set of 1s in a quasiperiodic sequence have to have a well-defined density? I keep trying to find a counterexample and I keep failing. |

Has mathoverflow yet led to mathematical breakthroughs?
Apologies if I have asked the question in the wrong place -- meta isn't where it should be in my consciousness but I'll put it there now. |

Has mathoverflow yet led to mathematical breakthroughs?
My own feeling about use of the internet is that one can more or less prove that it isn't "crucial" in the fully anal sense, because there are other means of communication. But it can be crucial in the weaker sense of being so much more efficient that it makes the difference between progress not happening and happening. Your example isn't quite like that, since you'd presumably have completed your research in reasonable time without mathoverflow, but it's quite far along a spectrum towards that. |
