With the move of MathOverflow into the SE network, this account is now associated with dormant accounts in math.SE and other sites in the network. While I plan to continue my (generally low-level) participation in MO, my current plans do not include restarting my participation in those other sites. Therefore, I will be ignoring any comments or pings that reach me from those sites, unless and until I resume my active participation there.
I remain "gone for the foreseeable future" from math.SE, tex.SE, and meta.SE.
Please do not send me private e-mail to call my attention to comments, questions, or other matters related to those sites. Thank you. Also, as I no longer participate in those sites, I do not wish to be sent, by private e-mail, questions that you can just as well ask on those sites. I would have thought it was obvious, but apparently I need to say so explicitly.

You are just going around answering old long-dormant questions... Thank you for this. Looks great! |

When did people know that all real polynomials of degree greater than 2 are reducible?
As I understand it, one of the reasons proving the FTA was important was to ensure that partial fractions would always work, at least in principle; I do not believe that it was a known fact before then. |

Is there a structure theorem or group law for finite groups generated by two elements?
@shane.orourke: D'oh. Of course. That's what I get for posting past 11pm... |

@TT_: As you say, it's not going to make things any easier; it still tells you that every finite group is embeddable into a 2-generated group (and I would guess one should be able to extend to proving that every finite group can be embedded into a finite 2-generated group). |

Why can't a nonabelian group be 75% abelian?
On the other hand, note that the probability that two semigroup elements commute can be any rational number, as shown by Givens and by Ponomarenko and Selinski (Givens, B. The probability that two semigroup elements commute can be almost anything, College Math J. 39 (5), 399-400, 2008; and also the paper by Michelle Soule). |
