comment Which vector spaces are duals ?
@silvascientist. It is $\mathbf{R}^{(\mathbf{R})}$, not $\mathbf{R}^{\mathbf{R}}$, which is isomorphic to $\mathbf{R}^{\mathbf{N}}$. The vector space $\mathbf{R}^{\mathbf{R}}$ has dimension $2^\mathfrak{c}$ by Erdős-Kaplansky.

comment BSD and congruent numbers
If I recall correctly the full BSD conjecture is known for the curves $E_p$ with $p$ prime $\equiv 3 \pmod{8}$ (these have rank 0). This was known before Bhargava-Shankar, see the work of Coates-Wiles and Rubin on CM elliptic curves.

comment BSD and congruent numbers
Do you mean the conjecture on the rank or the full BSD conjecture? I don't think it's known that the full BSD holds for a positive proportion of elliptic curves.

comment Labeling edges of an icosahedron with sum constraints
Thanks. This could actually be a variant of the original puzzle: maybe there is a nice symmetric solution allowing repetitions.

comment Labeling edges of an icosahedron with sum constraints
You're right. What is the smallest $N$ such that the labels are distinct and all $\leq N$ in absolute value? I guess there are algorithms to answer this kind of question.

comment Labeling edges of an icosahedron with sum constraints
Thanks a lot for your computations. It is still possible that there exists a distinct labeling which works, but according to your result it won't be as symmetric as in the cube case...

comment Higher-dimensional Artin L-functions
It would be also very nice to define a $G$-equivariant L-function in this setting. I have not seen a reference for this. This would not really be a new object, but this would tie things together nicely I think.

comment Higher-dimensional Artin L-functions
It seems that Serre's inductive argument on the dimension to show $L(\rho,n) \neq 0$ could also be used on the line $\mathrm{Re}(s)=n$, but I'm really no expert here. Unfortunately I know of no other reference than this article. It would be indeed very nice to have a reference with more detailed proofs.
