4. ### I Contradiction vs contraposition

You are asking about the difference between "Proof by contraposition" and "Proof by contradiction", and here is an example. To prove p \rightarrow q: - In proof by contraposition you start by assuming that \neg q is true and derive the statement \neg p. Here, the path is clear, i.e. you start...

Right-click on the math error, go to Math Settings -> Math Renderer and try e.g. HTML-CSS (or some other renderer).
13. ### Insight/Intuition into rotations in R²

Here is a good explanation: http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/74063.html
14. ### Summation Convention – Substitution Rule

Try to get an intuitive feeling for what the Kronecker-Delta \delta_{ij} does. Consider this sum: \sum_{j=1}^{n} c_j = c_1 + c_2 + \dots + c_n Now observe what happens if we multiply with the Kronecker-Delta: \sum_{j=1}^{n} \delta_{ij} c_j = \delta_{i1} c_1 + \delta_{i2}c_2 + \dots +...
15. ### Summation with no argument

For a sequence (a_n)_{n \in \mathbb{N}} you can form the series \sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n = a_0 + a_1 + a_2 + \dots. If you take the sequence a_n = 1 and plug it into the expression above, then you get the series \sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n = \sum_{n=0}^\infty 1 = 1 + 1 + 1 \dots . Or consider the...
16. ### A Advanced LIGO detection

This nature article mentions that other interferometers such as Geo600 in Germany and Virgo in Italy were not operating at the time . Is it known whether Geo600 would have detected the gravitational waves? What happens with gravitational waves? Do they exist forever or can they be absorbed or...
17. ### Proof: integral of continuous function is 0 so function is 0

Here is a proof mentioned on math.stackexchange using the "sign-preserving property" of continuous functions: http://math.stackexchange.com/a/543800 And two more links for the proof of the sign-preserving property: https://math.la.asu.edu/~dajones/class/371/ch4.pdf...
18. ### Proof of limits

One way to understand this is to interpret it as a two-player game, let's say between you and me. The game works as follows: I give you a number \epsilon > 0, and your task is to find a number \delta > 0 such that a certain condition is fulfilled. You can read about this two-player game...
19. ### How to become good programmer?

You may find the course Programming Mobile Applications for Android Handheld Systems on Coursera interesting. It starts on Sept 26th 2014.
20. ### Enrollment in C programming course

I recommend these C tutorial videos by iTzAdam5X. He uses CodeBlocks. Each video lasts for five to ten minutes.
21. ### What is ∞ exactly?

Here is a definition of what the limit means when it involves infinity: \lim_{x \to +\infty}f(x) = +\infty if for every number M>0 there is a corresponding number N such that f(x)>M whenever x>N. Intuitively this means, if I give you a positive number M, then you can find a number N such that...

26. ### LaTeX Double Line in LaTeX

You have to use "\\" and not "//" if you want a linebreak. See here: http://www.personal.ceu.hu/tex/breaking.htm
27. ### Subsequence that Sums Up to Half the Total Sum

Look up the partition problem. It seems that it can be solved with dynamic programming.
28. ### How to determine volume from a picture?

Do you mean by surface the purple curve? If yes, you could rotate this curve around the "x-axis" as shown here. You would have to adjust the jpeg to make the balloon symmetrical around the x-axis. The idea is to http://calculus-geometry.hubpages.com/hub/Disk-Method-Volume-of-Solid-of-Revolution...
29. ### Vector Projection

The purple vector is the projection of \vec{u} onto \vec{v}. Now, you have to think of how the purple vector is defined. It has (i) a length and (ii) a direction. (i) The length of the purple vector is | \vec{u}| \text{cos}(\theta). (ii) The direction of the purple vector is the same as that of...
30. ### Vector Projection

In case you are asking for the derivation of the formula I've drawn a sketch (see attachment). You can see that it is indeed just expressing the cosine in terms of the dot product.
