Shower thot: The integral on any finite interval of {1 if rational, else 0} is obviously 0. But what about from -inf to inf?

user259867
@bjb568 Also 0. One reason: it's the sum of integrals from n to n+1. Each summand is 0. Even an infinite series of zeros still has sum 0.

12:45 AM

@pizza :o kewl

@pizza yup. :P

user259867
@bjb568 Also, I object to "obvious". The integral is 0 in the sense of Lebesgue; it does not exist (is undefined) in the sense of Riemann.

What’s a “finite interval of {1 if rational, else 0}”?

@minitech Parsed incorrectly. ( integral on any finite interval) OF {1 if rational, else 0}

user259867
@minitech Let f(x) = \begin{cases} 1,\quad x\in\mathbb Q \\ 0,\quad x\notin \mathbb Q \end{cases} . The integral is \int_a^b f(x)dx

LaTeX (/ˈlɑːtɛx/ LAH-tekh or /ˈleɪtɛx/ LAY-tekh shortening of Lamport TeX) is a document preparation system and document markup language. It is widely used for the communication and publication of scientific documents in many fields, including mathematics, physics, computer science, statistics, economics, and political science. It also has a prominent role in the preparation and publication of books and articles that contain complex multilingual materials, such as Sanskrit and Arabic, including critical editions. LaTeX uses the TeX typesetting program for formatting its output, and is itself written...

Even if you're doing a great job moderating questions you encounter organically, you still gotta handle the flags. If you close a lot of stuff but can't handle making decisions on questions you didn't personally pick, you're gonna have a bad time as a moderator.

There's no explicit flow for it, but if you click on "nominate yourself" again, you can re-save your existing nomination post and it will reappear.

I don't know why that button still says "should be improved"; H&I only provides a means for non-OPs to edit, and nobody seems to understand the button. It should probably say "good question, poorly formatted" or something that actually lines up with H&I instead.
