Nimber multiplication
This is discussed at length in Lenstra's "Nim multiplication". openaccess.leidenuniv.nl/bitstream/handle/1887/2125/346_027.pdf |

What's the volume of $\{x\in[0,1]^n|\sum x_i\le t\}$ for real $t$?
This is the Irwin-Hall distribution; there are indeed formulas in Wikipedia. |

Dynamics in the integers - Floor function
The sequence $[n\alpha]$ is known as a Beatty sequence; the indicator function of a Beatty sequence (with irrational $\alpha$) is known as a Sturmian word. There are hundreds of papers working out properties of Beatty sequences. |

Rate of convergence of an irrational rotation
Ah, I see. But still a little weird as distance isn't respected by the isomorphism (but boundedly so), and certainly algebraic $\alpha$ is not the same as algebraic $\lambda$ (but that wasn't part of the original question). |

Rate of convergence of an irrational rotation
This answer has been accepted and all, but isn't it completely different from the original question? Here, powers of $\lambda$; there, multiples of $\alpha$. |

List of integers without any arithmetic progression of n terms
Uh, yep, $f(2)=3$. I did $f(3)$ on my fingers, too, so no promises... |

$f(1)=1$, $f(2)=4$, $f(3)=4$. Do you have some more numbers to report? |

What is your favorite “strange” function?
It is definitely discontinuous at rational points. At $p/q$ the difference between the limit from the left and from the right is $1/(2^q-1)$, which is definitely not 0. It is differentiable at irrational $x$, and moreover its derivative is 0 whenever it has one! |
