Conjecture about arcsin and $\sqrt{\quad}$

Let $r(a,b)$ be a rational number depending on $a,b$ and nonnegative. For every $b$ there is an $a$ such that $r(a,b)$ is not $0$. Let $C(a,b)$ be a squarefree positive integer depending on $b$ and ...

Smallest regular $m$-gon covering a regular $n$-gon

I start by stating the problem, which is already hinted in the title of the question. I do believe it is a research-level question. Let us fix a regular $n$-gon with area $1$. What is the smallest ...

$L_p$ norms of $0-1$ exponential sums

Consider $f_n(t)=\sum_{i=1}^{n}e^{ik_{i}t}$ with all $k_i$ some distinct integers for $t\in [-\pi,\pi)$. For $p>2$ I am interested in the maximum possible value of $$||f_n||_p,$$ where $f_n$ runs ...

On the Wolfram Research Reference page for the cotangent function (https://functions.wolfram.com/ElementaryFunctions/Cot/23/01/), I saw the following partial sum formula $$\sum_{k=0}^{n-1}(-1)^k\cot\... 2answers 308 views The complex trigonometric function degenerates to the positive integer For any integer N \geq 2, we have the identity:$$\frac{\ \prod _{n=1}^{N-1}\ \left(2+2\sum _{m=1}^{n\ }\cos \frac{\ m\pi \ }{N}\ \right)\ }{\prod _{n=1}^{N-1}\ \left(1+2\sum _{m=1}^{n\ }\cos \frac{\...
$\color{red}{\mathrm{Problem:}}$ $n\geq3$ is a given positive integer, and $a_1 ,a_2, a_3, \ldots ,a_n$ are all given integers that aren't multiples of $n$ and $a_1 + \cdots + a_n$ is also not a ...
