Consecutive Integer Squared Square
Moreover, the question is about squares which can be partitioned into square pieces of different sizes, so your purely arithmetic approach cannot suffice on its own.

Consecutive Integer Squared Square
Your second equation need not have integer solutions, e.g. for t=3 the LHS is not divisible by 3.

Integral of (2x)/(x1) Really stumped
Unfortunately MathOverflow is not for this kind of question: see mathoverflow.net/help/ontopic for an explanation why

A doubt on Balaji Meyn's ergodic theorem paper
@PeterSamuelson It sounds very odd to me too, but is apparently relatively common for e.g. those learning English on the Indian subcontinent, and some other groups: english.stackexchange.com/questions/13913/…

Are convolution algebras ever “topologically noetherian”?
When you say "closed", are you assuming your convolution algebra is complete in an appropriate topology?

A question on banach or $C^{*}$ algebra
This question should be closed because it has not been thought through properly

A question on banach or $C^{*}$ algebra
Also, your condition is vacuous for simple C*algebras since they have no primitive ideals.

comment 
A question on banach or $C^{*}$ algebra
Also, Banach and Cstar algebras are not the appropriate generalization for results about smooth functions. C^\infty[0,1] is a Frechet algebra not a Banach algebra. I think you should think more carefully about your questions rather than snatching at the first vague hope of an analogy  this is not what noncommutative geometry should be about

Your question regarding B is rendered trivial by the SingerWermer theorem for bounded derivations.

@PeterSamuelson there have been previous discussions, possibly on the old "tea.MO", of why various users use "doubt" as a synonym of "question"

A basic doubt on the quantity $\ln E[e^X]$
Since I am not on MSE I'll just comment that the current answer there uses Hoeffding's inequality and several paragraphs of work... and IIRC Hoeffding's inequality is proved using Jensen's inequality. Sigh

What recent programmes to alter highlyentrenched mathematical terminology have succeeded, and under what conditions do they tend to succeed or fail?
Possibly borderline: Dunford seems to use bicompact in some 1940ish articles but I don't recall which word is used in DunfordSchwartz
