Thu, 29 Jan 2015 22:57:11 +0000http://terrytao.wordpress.com/advice-on-writing-papers/#comment-451199Dear Prof. Tao, I have a question about trigonometric series: We know that the series \sum cos(2^nx)/\sqrt{n} is almost everywhere divergent in [0,2\pi] because it is a Lacunary series, But can we prove that the L1 norm of this series goes to infinity? Thank you very much for your help!!

Often I enjoy and learn from your blog. But today when I searched using the term “poetry” I came up with no matches. Perhaps you can fill that gap by noticing my blog “Intersections — Poetry with Mathematics” at http://poetrywithmathematics.blogspot.com.
Enjoy!

[Corrected, thanks – T.]
