### Weighted inner product of independent random unit vectors

Let $u=(u_1,...,u_n)$ and $v=(v_1,...,v_n)$ be independent random unit vectors in $\mathbb{R}^n$. Let $\lambda=(\lambda_1,...,\lambda_n)$ be a fixed unit vector in $\mathbb{R}^n$. What is the ...

### Lifting functions between $L^2$

A map $\pi: X \to Y$, $\mu$ is the measure on $X$, and its push forward is defined by $\nu:=\pi_{*} \mu$.
If given $f \in L^2(X, \mu)$, can we find $g \in L^2(Y, \nu)$ such that $g \circ \pi= f$, if $...

### 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 ...

### A (surprising?) expression for $e$

I apologise if this is off topic.
Consider the quantity
$$
F(m,n,k)=\frac{(m)_k}{k!n^{k-1} }
$$
where $m,n \in \mathbb{N}.$ For moderately large $n$, it seems that the approximation
$$
\sum_{k=1}^{K} ...

### Weak convergence in $L^p$

My question is probably very basic, sorry about that.
Let $\{f_i\},\{g_i\}$ be two sequences converging to 0 weakly in $L^p[0,1]$ for any $p<\infty$. Can one conclude that $\int_0^1f_i(x)g_i(x) dx\...

### Express $\zeta(n)$, in particular the Apéry's constant, in terms of series involving Gregory coefficients or the Schröder's integral

The idea and motivation of this post is to know if it is possible to express integer arguments of the Riemann zeta function $\zeta(n)$, in particular $\zeta(3)$, in terms of series involving the so-...

### Denominator approximation sequence of a real number

For any positive integer $[n]$, let $[n]=\{1,\ldots,n\}$. Let $r\in\mathbb{R}$. We define for every positive integer $n\in\mathbb{N}$ the minimal difference from a rational with denominator $\leq n$ ...

### Comparing two limsup's

Let $f\in L^2(0,\infty)$ be a positive, decreasing function. Is it then true that
$$
\limsup_{x\to\infty} xf(x) = \limsup_{x\to\infty} \frac{1}{f(x)}\int_x^{\infty} f^2(t)\, dt
$$
(and similarly for $\...

### Generalization of Lagrange-Burmann to system of self-consistency equations

In my research, I have come across a system of probability generating functions of the following form:
$$H_1(x) = x A(H_1(x))B(H_2(x)) \text{,}$$
$$H_2(x) = x C(H_1(x))D(H_2(x)) \text{,}$$
and I am ...

### Help in proving, that $\int_{0}^{\infty} \frac{1}{\Gamma(x)} d x=e+\int_{0}^{\infty} \frac{e^{-x}}{\pi^{2}+(\ln x)^{2}} d x$ using real methods only

I hope this does not seem like a too easy question for Overflow. I would like to find an easier method than mine to prove the above statement for the Fransén-Robinson Constant. My first method was to ...

### Low-degree polynomial approximation of the piecewise-linear function $x \mapsto \max(x, 0)$ on an interval $x \in [-R,R]$

For $R > 0$, consider the piecewise-linear function $\sigma_R: [-R,R] \rightarrow \mathbb R^+$, defined by $\sigma_R(x) := \max(x,0)$.
Question
Given $\epsilon> 0$, find a "low-degree" ...
