    Why does 1/[nlog(n+1)] diverge

    1. Homework Statement Why does the series 1/[nlog(n+1)] diverge 2. Homework Equations We know that 1/[nlog(n)] diverges by the integral test. However the question as written does not lend itself to be any integral precisely. 3. The Attempt at a Solution

    Why does 1/[n log(n)]^1.1 converge

    1. Homework Statement Prove that the series: 1/[n log(n)]^1.1 converges 2. Homework Equations 3. The Attempt at a Solution We know that nlogn is equal to d[log(log(n))] and use the integral test to show that it diverges. However, I have no idea how to deal with the 1.1th power.

    Sqrt(4n)/sqrt(4n-3)sqrt(4n^2-3n) diverges?

    1. Homework Statement How to show that sqrt(4n)/sqrt(4n-3)sqrt(4n^2-3n) diverges? 2. Homework Equations 3. The Attempt at a Solution The above expression is asymptotically equivalent to 1/2n which diverges as the harmonic series diverges. However, a rigorous proof is required...

    Prove ln(x) < sqrt(x) for all x>0

    Hi, I wonder how to prove that ln(x) < sqrt(x) for all x>0? Please enlighten me on two possible way to prove this . Proof1. Using calculus and derivatives Proof2. Since I'm taking real analysis, I wonder if it is possible to use taylor series to show this in an elegant way.

    How to find all complex Z such that Z^5=-32

    1. Homework Statement How to find all complex number Z such that Z^5=-32 2. Homework Equations Euler equation e^it=cost+isint 3. The Attempt at a Solution I guess a naive way to solve is that since Z^5=(-2)^5 Therefore Z=-2, but this obviously too good to be true. I have no...

    Is there a central limit theorem for Median?

    1. Homework Statement Hi, We know the famous central limit theorem for means. I wonder if there is a central limit theorem for Median? If so under what regularity condition, does the median converge to a normal distribution with mean and variance equal to what? 2. Homework Equations...

    Sum of independent uniform distribution conditional on uniform

    1. Homework Statement Let X and Y be independent and normal, then we know that It must be the case that X+Y and X are jointly normal Therefore we can apply the projection theorem: which states that if A and B are jointly normal then VAR(A|B)=VAR(B)-\rho^2VAR(B) , apply the theorem to A=X+Y...

    Product measure

    What's the proof of this fundamental theorem? Let (X,B,u) and (Y,C,v) be sigma finite measure spaces, Let f in L1(X,B,u) and g in L1(Y,C,v). Let h(x,y)=f(x)g(y). Then, h is in L1(XxY,BxC,uxv) and \int hd(u\times v)=\int fdu \int gdv should be an easy application of fubini,but i really have no...

    Easy question on stochastic process

    Suppose that A and B follow geometric brownian motion, where zA, and zB follow wiener process dA/A=a*dt+b*dzA dB/B=c*dt+d*dzB dzA*dzB=e*dt What stochastic process does A/B follow? This is not a homework question(I am sure it's almost trivially easy to those who learned the stuff). I am very...

    (0,1) ~ [0,1]

    Prove (0,1) ~ [0,1] I can think of an indirect proof: 1st step: make (0,1) ~ N , using a tangent function that is a 1-1 mapping from N to (0,1). 2nd step: since (0,1) is a subset of [0,1], if (0,1) is uncountable, then [0,1] must be uncountable Problem: But these two steps doesn't...

    Cantor's definition of reals

    Hi I've got a tough analysis proof. If I can do this on my own I might as well be Cantor himself. The first step is : Let C and N denote the collection of every cauchy sequence and null sequence (consisting of rationals) , prove that N is a subset of C Second step is : Prove N induces a...
