comment Most interesting mathematics mistake?
And, apparently, Poincaré had to spend (all or most of) his prize money to pay for the destruction and reprinting of that Acta issue. Would be good to get an authoritative source for this.

comment continuous vs discrete random walk
The mix of Mathematica syntax and actual mathematical notation is annoying, but I'm not going to translate and lay it out fully.

Bare minimum to achieve some sort of readability

comment continuous vs discrete random walk
Why is it important? Where did this question arise? I'm going to edit this for readability, but I'm not sure this is on-topic. Also, some background as to what you know and have tried will be helpful for those giving answers, should this question stay 'live'

comment Statistics, probability
This question is off-topic for MO, which is for research-level and research-related questions. This seems to me to be a homework (or homework-style) question. You may find more luck at math.stackexchange.com, but please flag this as homework if so, and also discuss what you know and what you've already tried.

comment Why are there so many smooth functions?
Ah, so that's stronger than being of second category - cool! (For others, since I had to look this up: residual means the complement of a meagre set)

I put in the reference to the paper, rather than just a ScienceDirect url

revised Solving algebraic problems with topology
Gave a human-readable description of paper, and used doi link

Fixed awful formatting

comment Hard maths on viXra?
Surely Simon Plouffe counts as a mathematician: vixra.org/author/simon_plouffe but some (not all!) of these are also on the arXiv as well, eg arXiv:math/0702300 vs viXra:1409.0083

comment Hard maths on viXra?
Given that vixra was created by Philip Gibbs, out of what seems like a sort of altruism, he may feel perfectly happy hosting papers there.

comment functors between categories that share some of the same equations
I suggest deleting one of your questions, and then thinking a bit more about what you're trying to ask. I have no idea what "a partial monoid of equations over its morphisms" means.

comment Is there an octonionic analog of the K3 surface, with implications for stable homotopy groups of spheres?
@ChrisSchommer-Pries can someone edit the above answer to make sure the 7 vs 8 issue is fixed, and importantly, clarified that it has been fixed?
