Image copyright problem with Image:Battlestar Galactica - Stealthstar.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Battlestar Galactica - Stealthstar.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Fraňková–Helly selection theorem[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Fraňková–Helly selection theorem, and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Fraňková-Helly selection theorem. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 10:12, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

It's better to move the article by using the move feature, rather than to cut-and-paste. This way the edit history remains attached to the contents of the article, which can be important for determining who contributed what. siℓℓy rabbit (talk) 11:54, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
... in this case, since you were essentially the only contributor, it probably doesn't matter that much. siℓℓy rabbit (talk) 11:56, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Caristi fixed point theorem[edit]

Hi, Thanks for your contributions there. I find the current version a little terse. Is there any way of elaborating a bit so it would be more accessible to geometers in addition to analysts? Katzmik (talk) 13:09, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Digraph of quaternion group[edit]

That's a very nice image you've created for the Cayley graph of the quaternion group. Have you tried rotating the inner square by 90 degrees clockwise? I made one of these for fun a couple weeks ago and I thought it was more visually pleasing since the crossing arrows become more symmetric. It's only a personal opinion, I just didn't know if you were aware of this. 74.192.194.29 (talk) 02:51, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

That's a really simple change with very nice effects. Thank you! Sullivan.t.j (talk) 21:19, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Not a proof by contradiction[edit]

You're certainly in excellent company when you think Euclid's proof of the infinitude of primes is by contradiction, as in this edit. But nonetheless that is an error. See Euclid's theorem my joint paper with Catherine Woodgold cited there. Michael Hardy (talk) 19:35, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Aaron Kelly.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Aaron Kelly.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

PLEASE NOTE:

  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Barry Garner.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:44, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Banach Bundle article[edit]

Hi, I recognized that you are responsible for the definition made in Banach bundle, I'm a little puzzled. By Fell, a Banach bundle is a Bundle is two topological spaces X, B and an continuous open surjection from B to X, such that each fiber is a Banach space, satisfying some continuity for the norm, addition and skalar multiplication.

This is the most common definition I've seen so far, and nearly every work that uses Banach bundles references Fell. So I'm not sure if you're definition is a generalization of Fells, or maybe another notion of a Banach bundle in a different field of mathematics.

In any way, I think the definition by Fell should be somehow included. Any suggestions? -- Roman3 (talk) 20:02, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

I don't know the detail's of Fell's definition; the one that I wrote up was the one given by Lang in Differential Manifolds. It does seem to me, though, that the two definitions agree except that in Lang's version the base space is a Banach manifold, not just a topological space.

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:37, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

transportation problem on the real line[edit]

Hi, I see you created the page on mass transport problem, and you did a section on the mass transport problem on the real line. You mention that the cost of the transport is thus given by I don't manage to find a reference for such a result (I only find references in the specific case where c(x,y) is given by an L_p norm). Do you know if such a reference exist in the literature ? I guess the demo is simple, but I need a reference as it is for an article.

Thank you very much in advance!

Differentiation in Ito calculus[edit]

Would you mind taking a look at the talk page on Ito calculus? Your contributions are being held up as support for the continued existence of the section about the so-called Allouba derivative. I'm trying to come to some sort of agreement about what should be done. My personal feeling is that it's a minor result and does not deserve a place in such a short article.

Many thanks. SimonL (talk) 00:22, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

SimonL — As you'll see on the Talk:Itō calculus discussion page, I've offered my opinion. Since my edits are now both the topic of this long-standing delete-revert war and being held up as evidence in the same conflict, I feel that the best I can do is give some perspective on what motivated my edits and (with a heavy tone of exasperation in my typing) plea for some calm. This is not the first iteration of this particualr discussion about this article, and I fear it will not be the last... Sullivan.t.j (talk) 04:19, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Good, I appreciate your efforts. SimonL (talk) 18:34, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Korn's inequality[edit]

Hi there, I noticed your name in the edit history of Korn's inequality. There's a famous nonlinear generalization of this inequality due to Friesecke, James, and Müller that should be mentioned there. Do you know if we already have an article about this inequality somewhere? Sławomir Biały (talk) 12:34, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Issue with Levy-Prokhorov metric page[edit]

There's an error that seems to have shown up on the original page about the Levy-Prokhorov metric that seems to have propagated to the current version.

Specifically, the claim is made on that page that it makes a difference if you change the word "Borel" in the definition to the word "open" or "closed". Replacing "Borel" with "closed" doesn't change anything: the epsilon-ball around a set is the same as epsilon-ball around its closure.

A mildly more complicated argument deals with replacing Borel by open. If mu(A)<=nu(A_eps)+eps for every *open* set A, then take eta>0 arbitrary. Now mu(B)<= mu(B_eta) <= nu(B_{eps+eta})+eps. Since this works for arbitrary eta, you get the same metric.
