A backup of a deleted PSQ : https://math.stackexchange.com/q/3955443/290189
OP : irfanmat
It has a detailed answer by Atticus Stonestrom. It’s pity that his post got deleted. As there’s no reason for undeletion, I’m posting it here so as to preserve the contents.
Question body Is there a semisimple and projective but not injective module? I will be glad if you help.
Response(s) In the noncommutative case, the answer is yes. Consider $R$ the ring of upper triangular $2\times 2$ matrices over a field $F$, and denote by $e_{ij}$ the element of $R$ with the $ij$th entry equal to $1$ and all other entries equal to $0$.

I wanted to start a meta question, but I don’t see a point of that after viewing some related posts listed at the end of the next subsection.

The Math.SE question $2\cos(2x)  2\sin(x) = 0$ has attracted several
answers from highrep users.
I am expanding @rhombic’s comment into an answer.
$$
\begin{aligned}
2\cos(2x)2\sin(x)&=0 \\
2  4\sin^2(x)2\sin(x)&=0 \\
2\sin^2(x)+\sin(x)  1&=0 \\
(2 \sin(x)  1)(\sin(x) +1) &= 0 \\
\sin(x) = \frac12 \text{ or } \sin(x) &= 1 \\
x = \frac{\pi}{6}, \frac{5\pi}{6} \text{ (rejected) or } & \frac{3\pi}{2}
\text{ (rejected)}
\end{aligned}

Goal To create a copy button for my Math.SE comment template in order to save the trouble of copying and pasting.
My first attempt I put the boilerplate inside a Markdown codeblock to prevent them from getting interpreted by Hugo’s Markdown parser. Under each codeblock, I placed the copy button.

Update: The question has been reopened.
I intended to answer 김종현’s problem on Math.SE. However, the programs in the question body aren’t typeset in MathJax. As a result, I downvoted and closed this question because found it unclear. From the proposed dual, it seems that I shouldn’t interpret the primal as a linear program. Anyways, without further clarifications from OP, I found no reason to look at this further. Here’s my intended answer:

Borel Cantelli Exercise 2019

I intend to post this for a BorelCantelli lemma exercise on
Math.SE.
The target event is ${\exists i_0 \in \Bbb{N} : \forall i \ge i_0, X_i =
1}$, whose complement is
$$
{\forall i_0 \in \Bbb{N} : \exists i \ge i_0, X_i > = 0}
= \limsup_i {X_i = 0}.
$$
To apply BorelCantelli, one has to determine whether $\sum_i P(X_i =
0)<+\infty$.
Weak LLN Practice

My intended answer to a weak LLN problem on Math.SE.
Problem: Suppose $(X_n)$ is a sequence of r.v’s satisfying $P(X_n=\pm\ln (n))=\frac{1}{2}$ for each $n=1,2\dots$. I am trying to show that $(X_n)$ satisfies the weak LLN.
The idea is to show that $P(\overline{X_n}>\varepsilon)$ tends to 0, but I am unsure how to do so.
My solution: As in the accepted answer in OP’s previous question https://math.stackexchange.com/q/3021650/290189, I’ll assume the independence of $(X_n)$.

Solution to a $p$test Exercise

I intended to answer Maddle’s $p$test question, but T. Bongers has beaten me by two minutes, so I posted my answer here to save my work.
The problem statement
This is the sum: $$\sum\limits_{n=3}^\infty\frac{1}{n\cdot\ln(n)\cdot\ln(\ln(n))^p}$$ How do I tell which values of $p$ allow this to converge? The ratio test isn’t working out for me at all.
Unpublished solution The integral test will do.
$$ \begin{aligned} & \int_3^{+\infty} \frac{1}{x\cdot\ln(x)\cdot\ln(\ln(x))^p} \,dx \\ &= \int_3^{+\infty} \frac{1}{\ln(x)\cdot\ln(\ln(x))^p} \,d(\ln x) \\ &= \int_3^{+\infty} \frac{1}{\ln(\ln(x))^p} \,d(\ln(\ln(x))) \\ &= \begin{cases} [\ln(\ln(\ln(x)))]_3^{+\infty} & \text{if } p = 1 \\ \left[\dfrac{[\ln(\ln(x))}{p+1}]^{p+1} \right]_3^{+\infty} & \text{if } p \ne 1 \end{cases} \end{aligned} $$ When $p \ge 1$, the improper integral diverges.
