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.

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.

Log in to reply

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

Hope this helps! :)

@Daniel Liu hI Daniel i have actually never participated in this contest but how good should you be to participate in this contest?

Log in to reply

It doesn't matter! You can still just do the competition for fun. So you have nothing to lose; just join!

Log in to reply

Yeah, you can easily pick off 1 or 2 problems without any Calculus knowledge! $\Tiny \text{[deleted by moderator]}$

In problem 6, do we have an independence assumption of having that property ?

Log in to reply

Yes.

Please incorporate that into the problem statement.

Ahaan, this is a forum for Proofathoners to connect. I think you should be lenient with your moderation. Off-topic comments should be fine.
