### Shift operator that generates separable orbit

Suppose, that $f$ is bounded measurable function, $T_h(f)(x) = f(x+h)$ is the shift operator. How to prove, that if the whole orbit $T_h(f):\, h\in\mathbb{R}$ has a dense, countable subset $T_{n_k}(f)$...

### functions on intervals with endpoints

Would most analysts say that $(2/3) x^{3/2}$ is an antiderivative of $x^{1/2}$ on $[0,\infty)$, or just on $(0,\infty)$? More generally, is there a standard interpretation of the assertion "$F$ is an ...

### Eigenvalues of a Parametrized Family of Linear Functions

Suppose that we have a family of linear functions $L(\alpha) : \mathbb{R}^n \rightarrow \mathbb{R}^n$, where $\alpha$ is a positive real number. For each $\alpha$, it is given that $L(\alpha)$ is a ...

### Codimension of Measurable Sets

I am currently teaching an advanced undergraduate analysis class, and the following question came up. Intuition suggests that "most" subsets of $[0,1]$ are not Lebesgue measurable. However, the ...

### Proofs of Baire category theorem

I would like to have a list of proofs of the fact that the real line is not meager (also very useful would be a reference to such a list, if it already exists somewhere). My motivation is the ...

### Possible subsets of reals that equal the set of continuity of a function

This should be an easy question, but I don't quite know how to approach it. It may be somewhat related to the concepts mentioned in the context of this past question, though it was motivated mainly by ...

### Why do we teach calculus students the derivative as a limit?

I'm not teaching calculus right now, but I talk to someone who does, and the question that came up is why emphasize the $h \to 0$ definition of a derivative to calculus students? Something a teacher ...
Motivation: For the sake of concreteness, I'll state a very particular context, but my question is a little more general. I'm trying to find a function $\gamma\colon [0,\delta) \to [0,\delta')$ that ...
