    Hi @ksayid thanks for checking in!

    hi, just wanted to ask: is there a logical-ordered listing of the subjects in planetmath? The ordering modes that I've found in the site was order by subject index or alphabetically.

    i'm looking for a list that enumerates all the prerequisite concepts before introducing a new one like:
    02, 03-surjective map & injective map
    04-bijective map
    05-set of natural numbers
    06-countable set

    Hi @johnpaulguzman thanks for the note! That kind of listing doesn't exist yet but it would be great to develop! What we can make sooner is a simple "term index" that would just list the terms like "surjective map" and so forth (but without the ordering). We could then put them in order based on the way the pages reference each other. I had played around a while ago with making an analysis of the contents according to "depth", just by counting the number of articles that refer to each article. I don't think I have the data from that experiment anymore, but it would be easy to reconstruct. Anyway, "coming soon" - I hope!
    Thanks for the clarification @holtzermann17 .

    i need a proof of catalan's identity

    found it by myself. bye

    @ch180 - first link by googling "planetmath catalan's identity". Good luck!

    Looks like Native MathML plugin is working now \square.
    how to do request?

    Hi there,
    I am looking for a faster algorithm for counting the number of data points that are close to a particular point in k-dimensional hyperspace? The current method of calculating all the distances to data points is too slow for my application to handle.

    (If this should be posted elsewhere then please let me know)
    Thanks in advance

    @holtzermann17 Is the data for planetphysics available somewhere?

    Hi, I am new here, can I know what does it mean by well defined ?
    transfer function
    Can anyone help me with an issue about Scott-continuity?
    This is what I'm trying to solve; if you could give me any hints I'd be grateful
    @eachirei -- probably not the best forum for questions like this; see math.stackoverflow. Also, posting homework questions and providing no context of what you've attempted is unlikely to trigger someone to explain the answer.
    How to look up an article in PlanetMath? I am looking for the article ""
    The link doesn't work; it takes me to the home page for PlanetMath rather than the article
    Hi there , nice to meet you all
    Joe Corneli
    @genenaden indeed, that page seems to be missing for some reason. At some point we might be able to track it down.
    how does this chat room work?
    Anyone here?
    Can you guys help me with a proof?
    Nabeegh Ahmed
    @nunesgrf yes??
    Hey guys
    hello, do you guys have links or popular resources for engineering math?
    hopefully open, and free :)
    good day party people
    I'm proofing my way through tao mostly sloppily and im considerung posting my so-called proofs here
    id this hinders chat from pulsating tell me and ill stop,, wont be much anyways
    (e) Let X and Y be finite sets. Then Cartesian product X ×Y is finite and #(X × Y) = #(X) × #(Y).
    i'll try with induction over #Y
    For #Y = 0 the cartesian product is the empty set and the proposition is trivially true.
    So We know #(X1×Y1) = #X1 ⋅ #Y1
    We try to prove #(X2×Y2) = #X2 ⋅ #Y2 for #Y2 = #Y1++
    Let's choose an arbitrary element a2 from Y2 then #(Y2 \ {a2}) = #Y1
    X2×Y2 = X2×(Y2{a2}) ∪ X2×{a2}
    as both sets are disjoint #(X2×Y2) = #(X2×(Y2{a2})) + #(X2 × {a2})
    and #(X2×(Y2{a2})) = #(X1×Y1{a2})
    j: X2 → X2 ×{a2} = j(x) = (x, a2) for x in X2 is a bijection
    so #(X2×{a2}) = #X2
    and #(X2×Y2) = #(X2×(Y2{a2})) + #(X2×{a2}) = #(X1×Y1) + #X1 =
    = #X1⋅#Y1 + #X1 = #X1⋅#Y1++ = #X2⋅#Y2
    i think illl rater spam my stuff in some forum
    Im in calc 2 anyone think they can give me a hand?

    I discovered algebraic general topology and a generalization of limit for arbitrary functions: - congratulate me
    Victor Porton
    will submit to PlanetMath
    is the sum of two normally distributed random variable X and Y alwways norma
    is the sum of two normal variable always normal??
    Rana Zubair
    can someone please explain to me what is inverse CDF function. It will be really appreciated, i could not get any clear understanding of it.

    Hello! It's my first time here. Please be kind!
    First off, thank you for a monumental effort. It's almost like Bourbaki reincarnated for the masses!

    Is there a Makefile on the planetmath repo to create the true local copy of planetmath with cross-linking sections, indexed items etc.?
