After doing nearly all the coursework for a Ph.D. in math, I then did all the coursework for a Ph.D. in statistics and completed that degree.

Systematic brute-force searches for counterexamples
@AndresCaicedo : One could make the question of how to make this precise a part of the posted question. But I put the question in bold: it asks whether there's a body of published things about this. |

Sexy vacuity …
If the base is the real or complex zero and the exponent is the natural zero, then $0^0=1$. For example: $\displaystyle e^z=\sum_{n=0}^\infty\frac{z^n}{n!}$. If $z=0$, then the first term in this expansion is $0^0/0!=1$. |

“Smallest” event such that probability greater than a given value
Did the problem you're studying specify a particular probability distribution? |

Is a fair lottery possible?
This question somehow reminds me of that solved by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008: How to prevent double-spending of bitcoins. But I'm not sure that really has anything to do with this. |

Estimate on gaussian distribution
@cardinal : "Hard" in the sense that you probably have to resort to numerical methods. |

Estimate on gaussian distribution
If you do reduce it to a normal distibution whose variance is just an identity matrix, then the constraints will also get transformed so that each will involve more than one of the independent components, so I think you'll still have just as hard a problem. |

Concentration rates for the posterior distribution
....Bayesians, notably Duke University's Jim Berger, don't really care about things like this. Accuracy in language really does make things clearer. |
