### Has anyone seen this series?

I come across the following infinite series. $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{t^n}{n!\: n^{a}}, \quad\text{for t>0 and a>0}.$$ In particular, I am interested in the case where $a=1/4$. ...

### Characterization of a set in $\mathbb{R}^d$

Let $X= (X_1,\dots, X_d)$ be a fixed vector of random variables on the space $(\Omega, \mathcal{F}, \mathbb{P})$. Consider the following set. \label{main12} C= \{x\in \mathbb{R}^d ~|~ ...

### General version of Skorokhod representation of random variables

Let $F: \mathbb{R} \to [0,1]$ be cumulative distribution function (cdf). The standard way to build a random variable $\tau$ on $([0,1],\mathcal{B},\text{Leb})$ with $F$ as its cdf is using the ...

### Lipschitz continuous maps from $\mathbb R^n$ to $\mathbb R^n$ that preserve Gaussian measure?

The only ones I can think of are linear maps like rotations and permutations. Is there a more general characterization?

### Smooth but non-analytic kernel functions

Does there exist a (stationary) covariance kernel function which is $C^\infty$-smooth but not real analytic? If so, could you please provide an example?

### Pros and cons of probability model for permutations

I am studying probability model of random permetuation Let $b(n; k)$ denote the number of permutations of {1,...,n} with precisely k inversions ($inv(\pi)$). The analytic approach was considered by ...

### proof of “supermodular function induces measure”

A function $f:\mathbb{R}^n\longrightarrow\mathbb{R}$ induces a measure by its finite differences, that is \begin{align} \mu((\mathbf{a},\mathbf{b}]) := \Delta_{a_1,b_1}\cdots\Delta_{a_n,b_n} f ...

### approximately linear functions

i suppose it's fairly well known that if a (continuous, real-valued) function $f$ on the real line satisfies $f(x-y)=f(x)-f(y)+const$ then it is necessarily linear. are there any general ...
consider the following mappings, G and T, $y(s) = $Gx$(s)=\exp\left[\sum_{s'}p(s'|s)\log x(s') \right]$ $z(s) = $Ty$(s)=\sum_{s'}q(s'|s)y(s')e^{-r(s')}$ where $0< x(s)\leq 1$ ,$r(s)<0$ , ...
The following problem arose for my collaborators and me when studying the computational complexity of the Maximum-Cut problem. Let $f : \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}$ be an odd function. Let \$\rho \in ...
