Greetings, proofathoners! I was recently inducted as a problem writer in the Proofathon contest, and it really is hard work creating quality problems! That's why we would all appreciate it if you could participate in the upcoming Proofathon Calculus Competition!

It starts tomorrow (6/27/2014) at midnight and ends on the 6th of July, 11:59 PM (all EST). So get going, and sign up here!

To sign up for proofathon, go click the "log in" button, then scroll down to the "sign up" form. Fill in your information, and you're ready to go. Just go to the contests page when the competition starts to begin competing.

We look forward to seeing future proofathoners heading our way!

@Daniel Liu , I wanted a clarification regarding question 3 wherein it is asked to obtain the two functions. On integrating, I get some unknown, arbitrary constants for which there isn't any condition to obtain their specific values. So how should I give the answer?

Thanks in advance. Sudeep Salgia · 3 years ago

@Sudeep Salgia You may find a specific pair of functions, or a family of possible functions. I'm not sure, since I didn't make the problem, but I think that is what you have to do. Daniel Liu · 3 years ago

@Sudeep Salgia This is standard in maths competitions, especially in differential (functional) equations. You should say "for some arbitrary constants [blah blah blah...]"

Hope this helps! :) Cody Johnson · 3 years ago

@Mardokay Mosazghi Also, sometimes just solving numbers 1, 2, and 3 is enough to win the contest! Cody Johnson · 3 years ago

@Mardokay Mosazghi Yeah, you can easily pick off 1 or 2 problems without any Calculus knowledge! \(\Tiny \text{[deleted by moderator]}\) Finn Hulse · 3 years ago

In problem 6, do we have an independence assumption of having that property ? Abhishek Sinha · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Abhishek Sinha Yes. Daniel Liu · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Daniel Liu Please incorporate that into the problem statement. Abhishek Sinha · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Abhishek Sinha Cody replies that it's implied in the problem statement. Daniel Liu · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Daniel Liu No. The problem only specifies the marginals. There could be potentially many joint distributions that have the same marginals. Abhishek Sinha · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Abhishek Sinha That problem bugs me. \(\Tiny \text{[Deleted, No hints please!]}\) but it gave me an obvious and stupid answer. :P Finn Hulse · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Abhishek Sinha Okay, I'll incorporate it into the problem statement. Cody Johnson · 3 years ago

Log in to reply

@Abhishek Sinha I'm sorry, if you really have an issue with this contact @Cody Johnson about it. He's the one who can edit. I can't really do anything about it :/ Daniel Liu · 3 years ago

Please keep all posts on-topic! Any off-topic posts will be deleted. @David Lee Please keep this in mind. If too many off-topic posts are made, this thread will be closed. Ahaan Rungta · 3 years ago

@Ahaan Rungta Ahaan, this is a forum for Proofathoners to connect. I think you should be lenient with your moderation. Off-topic comments should be fine. Cody Johnson · 3 years ago
