  2. -------------------------------- -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------http://mathoverflow.net/q/108343 This question appears to be no longer relevant, as it seems that it has been answered in the comments.
  3. http://mathoverflow.net/q/109094 Voting to close, since the question has been resolved
  4. http://mathoverflow.net/q/111799 This question appears to be unclearly phrased, possibly homework; and the OP has not responded in 6 months. Voting to close.
  5. http://mathoverflow.net/q/119817 This question is already answered on math.SE.
  6. http://mathoverflow.net/q/120634 Duplicate of http://scicomp.stackexchange.com/questions/5177/robust-optimization-using-fmincon-in-matlab
  7. http://mathoverflow.net/q/126536 This question appears to be off-topic and has a good discussion at stats.SE
  8. http://mathoverflow.net/q/127056 This question appears to be off-topic because it would be appropriate on math.stackexchange, but is not about research mathematics.
  9. http://mathoverflow.net/q/127438 This question appears to be off-topic, it was asked on MSE, and the user did not engage with critical feedback
  10. http://mathoverflow.net/q/128406 The question is no longer relevant.
  11. http://mathoverflow.net/q/128406 Voting to close as "no longer relevant".
  12. http://mathoverflow.net/q/128691 This question appears to be off-topic because it appears to be asking for help with homework
  13. http://mathoverflow.net/q/129764 This question appears to be off-topic because it was answered very easily in comments
  14. http://mathoverflow.net/q/130378 Voting to close, since this question has been answered in comments, and is also too basic
  15. http://mathoverflow.net/q/132362 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about homework
  16. http://mathoverflow.net/q/133367 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about statistics or signal processing. Consider asking at stats.stackexchange.com or dsp.stackexchange.com instead.
  17. http://mathoverflow.net/q/133367 This question appears to be off-topic, for reasons addressed above. To make it an appropriate question here, it would need to be turned into a precisely stated _mathematical_ question, and at a minimum include glosses on the words that you use (which are probably standard in other disciplines). If you believe it should stay here, please read the "How to ask" discussion and edit your question.
  18. http://mathoverflow.net/q/134117 Voting to close as it is answered in the comments.
  19. http://mathoverflow.net/q/134759 This question appears to be off-topic because ELSEVIER are BAD and responsible for EVERYTHING
  20. http://mathoverflow.net/q/134759 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the state of the universe.
  21. http://mathoverflow.net/q/134802 I have no comment about the content of this question, but I have voted to close because I think the question needs to be improved.Where did you read the lemma?Could you perhaps give a sense of some of the symbols (as you would in a journal article, even one written for specialists)?And please look over the writing and correct some English mechanics.
  22. http://mathoverflow.net/q/134802 This question appears to be off-topic because it stems from on an elementary logical error.
  23. http://mathoverflow.net/q/134926 This question appears to be off-topic because it is no longer relevant.
  24. http://mathoverflow.net/q/134954 See my previous comment for why I am voting to close
  25. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135079 This question appears to be off-topic because it belongs better on http://stats.stackexchange.com
  26. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135140 Voting to close because it is resolved in comments.
  27. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135188 Not a question. Voting to close.
  28. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135355 This question is not even a real question. I might as well ask you what my favourite colour is.
  29. http://mathoverflow.net/q/13536  The question is no longer relevant.
  30. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135386 This question appears to be off-topic because it has already been posted on MSE
  31. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135394 This question appears to be off-topic. Try http://stats.stackexchange.com
  32. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135438 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about physics and education requirements.
  33. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135456 This question appears to be off-topic because it is cross-posted already at another Stack Exchange network.
  34. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135472 This question appears to be off-topic because it can be easily answered via google.
  35. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135812 voting to close, since the question fits better on tex.SE
  36. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135855 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about physics; it would be better to ask at physics.stackexchange.com
  37. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135903 Seconding what Gerry Myerson said
  38. http://mathoverflow.net/q/135974 Given the generality of your points (none of them are specific to mathematics, and one person's hour of work is another person's two hours of work) I think this would get better feedback on http://academia.stackexchange.com
  39. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136009 There is no longer any question.
  40. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136009 This question appears to be off-topic because it is a "to-be-deleted" question.
  41. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136094 This question appears to have an easy answer as pointed out by Peter Michor
  42. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136187 This question appears to be off-topic because it is: Not a real question.
  43. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136383 This "conjecture" is easier to prove than it is to check if it's new. Certainly not research level math.
  44. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136485 Voting to close as question is "no longer relevant" as we used to say on old MO
  45. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136487 This question appears to be off-topic because it is not really about mathematics, nor history of mathematics, but about **hypothetical** history of mathematics.
  46. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136508 This question appears to be off-topic and was asked only a short time ago on MSE
  47. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136611 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about pirating books, not mathematics research.
  48. http://mathoverflow.net/q/136736 This question appears to be off-topic because neither cites its sources nor provides motivation for the question.
  49. http://mathoverflow.net/q/137272 This question has already been posted at another site in the Stack Exchange network (math.stackexchange.com).
  50. http://mathoverflow.net/q/137285 This question appears to be off-topic because it is not really a question. The OP gives a proof and is asking us to verify his proof. That is not suitable for mathoverflow.
  51. http://mathoverflow.net/q/137391 There is no question here. The "OP" is sharing his thoughts.
  52. http://mathoverflow.net/q/137463 This question isn't about Mathematics, it's about guessing what the question is.
  53. http://mathoverflow.net/q/137627 This question appears to be off-topic because it is a homework
  54. http://mathoverflow.net/q/137777 This is not a question.
  55. http://mathoverflow.net/q/137971 Voting to close as no longer relevant- answered in the comments.
  56. http://mathoverflow.net/q/137984 This question is utterly inappropriate for this site (or indeed any SE site)
  57. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138043 You already got an answer elsewhere.
  58. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138067 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about image processing. A much better place to ask it is dsp.stackexchange.com
  59. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138089 This isn't the appropriate place to ask this question.
  60. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138123 This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about anything
  61. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138684 This question appears to be off-topic because it is not a real question
  62. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138797 This question appears not to be a question.
  63. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138871 Already asked and closed. Don't repost closed questions.
  64. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138890 This gives the impression of homework.
  65. http://mathoverflow.net/q/138981 This question appears to be off-topic because it is spam
  66. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139055 This question does not appear to be a question.
  67. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139145 This question appears to be off-topic because it is answered in the comments
  68. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139294 This question appears to be off-topic. An edited and expanded version of this question (provide more details on what you know and what you are asking about) could be better received on either Mathematics.StackExchange.Com or SciComp.StackExchange.com
  69. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139335 This question appears to want other people to do all the work
  70. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139425 This question appears to be off-topic because it is answered in the comments
  71. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139521 Please wait more than an hour or two before deciding that it will receive no answers and cross-posting. A few days or a week would be better.
  72. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139521 Poster only waited an hour after posting on M.SE before cross-posting on MO.
  73. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139681 This is a computer algebra system question, not a mathematics question.
  74. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139681 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the use of a CAS. While CAS use is not explicitly mentioned in the MO faq, questions on CAS use is [on topic at MSE](http://math.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic) and you should consider asking there instead.
  75. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139714 This question appears to be off-topic because it is answered in the comments
  76. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139714 This question appears to have been answered in the comments, as already observed by David White
  77. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139836 This question appears to be off-topic because it should be answerable by some more thought
  78. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139839 This question appears to be off-topic in its current form, because an easy counter-example has been provided
  79. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139854 I've voting to close because as Asaf noted, the question is cross posted to MSE and has already received an answer there (which was accepted by the OP).
  80. http://mathoverflow.net/q/139970 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about Mathematica. You should try http://mathematica.stackexchange.com instead, which is dedicated to the software Mathematica.
  81. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140255 This question appears to be off-topic because the OP should first have engaged with the feedback on MSE
  82. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140342 This question is unintelligible as written.
  83. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140410 Crossposted from [physics.se](http://physics.stackexchange.com/).
  84. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140417 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about spam.
  85. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140587 This question appears to be off-topic for the reasons in @Martin's comment
  86. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140635 This question appears to be off-topic because as of now the question being asked is too vague. However, if it's edited to ask a precise question rather than "something like that" I will vote to reopen
  87. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140635 This question appears to be off-topic because it is hopeless as of August 2013 AD.
  88. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140661 Voting to close until the title is changed and an actual question is asked. One should always be very careful before making claims about errors in the existing literature
  89. http://mathoverflow.net/q/140919 This question appears to have been answered in the comments, and therefore should be closed as "no longer relevant", a reason no longer available after the migration to MO 2.0.
  90. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141001 Could easily have been answered using Google.
  91. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141001 Look at page 5 of http://math.mit.edu/~mckernan/Teaching/10-11/Spring/18.726/l_4.pdf for a negative answer to your first question. BTW: This was proof by Google. It is best to Google first and ask MO questions later!
  92. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141168 This question appears to be no longer relevant here.
  93. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141208 This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about mathematics
  94. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141231 This question appears to be off-topic because it is appears to be answered in the comments
  95. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141313 Franz Lemmermeyer answered it on Math.SE,
  96. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141454 This belongs on stackoverflow or cstheory.stackexchange.com (probably the former).
  97. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141805 This question appears to be off-topic because MO is not for asking people to check correctness of one's claims/calculations
  98. http://mathoverflow.net/q/141820 This is a duplicate of a question from the author that was migrated to MSE.
  99. http://mathoverflow.net/q/142066 This question appears to be off-topic because it appears to be answered in the comments
  100. http://mathoverflow.net/q/142223 This question appears to be off-topic because it is answered in the comments
  101. http://mathoverflow.net/q/142491 This question appears to be off-topic because it is spam.
  102. http://mathoverflow.net/q/142537 The question basically contains the answer.
  103. http://mathoverflow.net/q/143478 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about Spam
  104. http://mathoverflow.net/q/143721 There are two issues here. (1) Questions about correctness of preprints are treated with some care if accepted at all. See http://tea.mathoverflow.net/discussion/1059/discussing-preprints-on-mo/#Item_0 and http://tea.mathoverflow.net/discussion/1422/discussing-recent-preprints-on-mo-again/#Item_0 on the old meta. (2) Your previous question suggests that you don't know what a Tate-Shafarevich group is, or any related concepts, at which point this question is way too broad.
  105. http://mathoverflow.net/q/143857 This question appears to be off-topic because it appears to have been answered very easily in the comments.
  106. http://mathoverflow.net/q/144080 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a well-known open question.
  107. http://mathoverflow.net/q/144141 This question appears to be off-topic because it appears to be answered quite easily in the comments
  108. http://mathoverflow.net/q/144346 The person who asked is no longer interested in the question, since (s)he already managed to solve it.
  109. http://mathoverflow.net/q/144402 This is not a real question.
  110. http://mathoverflow.net/q/144733 This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a Project Euler question.
  111. http://mathoverflow.net/q/144874 Simul-posting without notice.
  112. http://mathoverflow.net/q/145068 It's not usually appropriate to ask about questions in textbooks unless you also explain what you tried, what steps you are missing, why it doesn't work, etc.
  113. http://mathoverflow.net/q/145113 This question appears to be off-topic because it appears to be answered in one line in the comments
  114. http://mathoverflow.net/q/145165 This question appears to be off-topic because it is spam
  115. http://mathoverflow.net/q/21447O P never responded. Voting to close as "no longer relevant"
  116. http://mathoverflow.net/q/21704 This question appears to be off-topic because it is past its use-by date
  117. http://mathoverflow.net/q/21704 voting to close - intended reason would be "no longer relevant"
  118. http://mathoverflow.net/q/29713 Try tex.stackexchange.com instead?
  119. http://mathoverflow.net/q/48721 This question has already been answered on cstheory.
  120. http://mathoverflow.net/q/48771 It seems to me that this question has been around a long time and is unlikely garner new answers of high quality. It also seems unlikely most would even read new answers. Furthermore, nowadays I imagine a question like this would be closed as too broad, and if we close this then we'll discourage questions like it in the future. So I'm voting to close.
  121. http://mathoverflow.net/q/53083 This question appears to be off-topic because it is no longer relevant, the question was answered to the extent possible.
  122. http://mathoverflow.net/q/58708 This question appears to be off-topic because it appears to be resolved in the comments
  123. http://mathoverflow.net/q/86769 This question appears to be founded on an incorrect premise
  124. http://mathoverflow.net/q/87495 Based on a misunderstanding of conditional expectation
