Draft 1/∞ Article[edit]

Hello, I have addressed some of your concerns about this draft article after having performed some initial research, I would appreciate your comments...thank you!YWA2014 (talk) 05:02, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Euclidean algorithm[edit]

You haven't responded on my talk page. If MathJax alt= is busted, then it should be fixed or people should stop using MathJax. Squelching attempts to accomodate disabilities seems to be poor form. Glrx (talk) 17:54, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

I agree that MathJax bug must be fixed, but I have not the competence for doing that. About requiring people to stop using MathJax, it is against Wikipedia consensus, as shown by the recent discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Mathematics/Archive/2014/Jun#A challenge from Jimbo Wales. If you want to make Wikipedia unreadable for MathJax users, please ask before to Wikiproject Mathematics. D.Lazard (talk) 13:26, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Alleged irrelevance[edit]

On 24/1/2014, you deleted a condition as an "irrelevant sentence" in the article on Euler's totient function. Perhaps you would like to tell us how you decided that the clause is irrelevant.

Please, sign your post in talk pages, by inserting four tildes (~~~~) at the end.
The removed sentence was "If R(s) is bigger than 2." This sentence is grammatically incorrect and involves a function R that does not appear in the section. May be you wanted say that the equality is true only inside the domain of convergence. But the fact that the series is convergent if the real part of s is larger than 2 does not implies that the domain of convergent does not include values of s with a real part smaller than two. Moreover, the result should be better understood as "the two members define the same analytic function. Therefore, your grammatically incorrect and unclear sentence does not add anything to the article. D.Lazard (talk) 11:33, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
"R(s)" is a well known symbol for the real part of s and is used widely in analytic function theory and complex numbers generally. In point of fact the function {zeta(s-1)}/{zeta(s)} has a pole at s=2.
(talk page stalker) You're still not signing your posts here, as both requried and requested. Second, from what I see, D.Lazard was right in their removal. If you think it should be added, then it should be discussed on the article talkpage to obtain WP:CONSENSUS the panda ɛˢˡ” 12:55, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
