Mathematicians prove the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev inequalities - Phys.org

RUDN University mathematicians have proven the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev (HLS) inequalities for the class of generalized Riesz potentials. These results extend the scope of these potentials in mathematics and physics because the main tools for working with such potentials are based on HLS inequalities.

What Is It Like to Have an Understanding of Very Advanced Mathematics? - forbes.com article


You can answer many seemingly difficult questions quickly. But you are not very impressed by what can look like magic, because you know the trick. The trick is that your brain can quickly decide if question is answerable by one of a few powerful general purpose "machines" (e.g., continuity arguments, the correspondences between geometric and algebraic objects, linear algebra, ways to reduce the infinite to the finite through various forms of compactness) combined with specific facts you have learned about your area.

Writing Mathematics


Whenever you try to communicate mathematical statements and ideas, you must start speaking and writing the language of mathematics. Exams and homework are also supposed to show the teacher how you think, whether you understand the concepts, and whether you've put enough work into mastering more mechanical skills. Here are a few pointers which should help you write better papers, and - hopefully - get better grades.

Some resources:
  1. Mathematical writing by the legendary author Donald Knuth
  2. Writing a Math Phase Two Paper - PDF from  MIT
