comment What quantity is this “length” called?
Perhaps you really want a test for the result being a List or not? Then you might look at ListQ (undocumented tho).

Something like NonlinearModelFit[data, -p2 Log[p1 x],{p1,p2},x] where p1 and p2 are parameters?

comment Spherical parametric plot
If you have version 9+ you can use: ParametricPlot3D[Evaluate[CoordinateTransform[ "Spherical" -> "Cartesian",{2 Cos[t]+Sin[t],t,Sin[10 t]}]],{t,0,Pi/2}]

comment How to simplify symbolic matrix multiplication using the associativity of scalar multiplication?
This may be too specific: Thread[(2 A).(3 B), Times] /. Dot[a_?NumericQ, b_?NumericQ] :> a b

comment Join decimal part
just beat me to it, yours is the same as mine (essentially):toDecimal[a_, b_] := N[a + (-1)^Sign[a] b 10^(-IntegerLength[b])]; list /. {a_, b_, c_, d_} :> {toDecimal[a, b], toDecimal[c, d]} (* {0.1, -2.259} *)

comment Integral too slow and with conditionals
use assumptions Integrate[x/(x^2 + y^2)^(3/2), {y, -a, a}, Assumptions -> (x | y) \[Element] Reals && x > 0 && a > 0]. This is likely a duplicate, but I can't find which one.

@xslittlegrass, actually it was the second part in the answer: "in addition, the discrete fast Fourier transform assumes periodicity."
