### Specialization of an irreducible polynomial and monogeneous ring of integers

Let $P\in\mathbb{Q}[X_1,\ldots,X_n][T]$ be an irreducible polynomial, which is monic in $T$ of degree $d\geq 1$. For $x=(x_1,\ldots,x_n)\in \mathbb{Q}^n$, let $P_x=P(x_1,\ldots,x_n,T)$. It is well-...

### Was Jacobi the first to notice the ambiguity in the partial derivatives notation? And did anyone object to his fix?

In his 1841 article De determinantibus, Jacobi remarked that the notation $\frac{\partial z}{\partial x}$ for partial derivatives is ambiguous. He observed that when $z$ is a function of $x,y$ as well ...

### Exact sequence in example in Grothendieck's Tohoku paper resulting from the Cech-to-derived-functor spectral sequence

Grothendieck gives in his Tohoku paper in example 3.8.3 an example for that $\check{\mathrm{H}}^{2}(X,\mathcal{F}) \neq \mathrm{H}^{2}(X,\mathcal{F})$. In the beginning he states that there exisits ...

### Martingales and intersection of random walks

Let $G=(V,E)$ be a graph with $n$ vertices. Consider a pair of simple random walks $(X,Y)$ on the graph, each of length $L$ starting from a node $v \in V$. We denote a length-$L$ random walk $X$ as a ...

### Questions Regarding Conditional Entropy

Consider a random variable $G$ distributed in a bounded 2d plane e.g. a square. For any point $g$ sampled from $p(G)$, there are 10 points $s_i$ at the same position as $g$. Assuming all $s$ are from ...

### Approximate method to extract behavior of a Laplace transform in an intermediate region

In the theory of random walks, Tauberian type theorems are often applied to extract the small or large-time behavior from a difficult equation. For example, the Montroll-Weiss formula describing a ...

### Reference request for (weak*) metrizability of a bounded space of signed Radon measures on a compact set

I know the following is true and I know how to prove it (cf. exercise 50 on page 171 in Folland, Theorem 7.18 in Folland), but per my adviser's instructions, it would be better to find a source to ...

### Is there any conditions on a finite abelian group so that it cannot be class group of any number field?

The Cohen-Lenstra paper says the probability that the odd part of a class group being cyclic is close to 0.98. So I was thinking: can we find any conditions on a finite abelian group so that it cannot ...

### Geodesics (Local vs Global)

Let $M$ be a Riemannian manifold, and $p,q\in M$ two points. Now, if $M$ is a complete metric space the Hopf–Rinow theorem ensures that there is a geodesic $C\subset M$ joining $p$ and $q$ that ...

### Two equations and a question related to a well-known conjecture from number theory

On the Wikipedia page, the Beal´s conjecture is stated as: If $A^x+B^y=C^z$, where $A,B,C,x,y,z$ are positive integers with $x,y,z>2$, then $A$,$B$, and $C$ have a common prime factor. I think ...
