Math ASCII Notation Demo

Mathematical content on is presented in Math ASCII Notation which can be properly displayed by all Web browsers because it uses only the basic set of characters found on all keyboards and in all fonts.

The purpose of these pages is to demonstrate the power of the Math ASCII Notation. In principle, it can be used to write mathematical content of any complexity. In practice, its limits can be seen when trying to write complicated formulas (containing, for example, variables with many indexes or multiple integrals).

Despite its limitations the Math ASCII Notation has much expressive power, as can be seen from browsing through these pages.

a : |N x |N -> [0,oo]
Consider this line:
+(n=1 to n=oo) +(k=1 to k=oo) a(n,k) = +(k=1 to k=oo) +(n=1 to n=oo) a(n,k)
Suppose that infinity is assumed by one of the values pre

Determine if it is true:
/\x,y:-|R\{0} |x/y + y/x| >= 2
lim (x,y)->(0,0) x*y / (x + x^2 + y^2)
doesn't exist
smart hint: -y^2 = x
1) x[n] = 1/n, y[n] = 1/n, lim = 0
2) x[n] = -1/n^2, y[n] = -1/n, lim = oo

Let s be a complex number other than -1.
s / (1+s) = ???
s / (1+s) = 1 - 1/(1+s)
Let s be a complex number other than -1.
1 - 1/(1+s) = ???
1 - 1/(1+s) = s / (1+s)
Let y be a nonnegative function on P(X), such that
(1) if A c B c X, then y(A)<=y(B);
(2) if A is a disjoint countable union of sets A[n] c X,
then y(A) <= y(A[1]) + y(A[2]) + ... + y(A[n]) + ...
What further can we conclude about function y?
It is countably subadditive.

Let M,B,A be arbitrary sets.
(A n M) \ (B n M) = ???
(A n M) \ (B n M) = (A \ B) n M
Let W c P(X) be a ring in X.
Let y : W -> [0,oo] be additive.
y(A u B) <= ???
y(A u B) <= y(A) + y(B)
Recall that y(A u B) + y(A n B) = y(A) + y(B).
Notice that y(A n B) >= 0.
Hence y(A u B) <= y(A) + y(B).

Let A be a bounded connected subset of |R. Let E>0.
Prove that there exists a closed interval F c A such that d(A) <= d(F) + E.
d(A) and d(F) denote the length of those intervals.

Consider the p-dimensional Euclidean space |R^p.
Let W be the collection of all intervals in |R^p.
In the context of measure theory, let m be the "volume" function on W.
Let A:-W. Let E>0.
There exists a closed F:-W with FcA and m(A)<=m(F)+E.
How can that be proven?
The proof is tedious.
