comment Finding planetary conjunctions with Mathematica (project-level)
I don't think you have clarified the question by making it even longer and introducing the undefined term "polynomialish."

comment Solve a function to find the optimum value of parameter in mathematica
I found another possible duplicate (this type of issue is so common that answers are scattered throughout this site): How can I get Mathematica to allow me to apply FindRoot to an expression that contains NIntegrate?. I think it's better not to add to this proliferation, so I still propose to close this question.

comment Solve a function to find the optimum value of parameter in mathematica
@bbgodfrey FindRoot[eq[alpha],{alpha,0.001}] works if I define eq[alpha_?NumericQ]:=NIntegrate[Abs[0.5 Sqrt[\[Pi]/alpha] Exp[-((\[Pi] x)^2/alpha)] (1-Erf[-32.3077 Sqrt[alpha]+(I \[Pi] x)/Sqrt[alpha]])]^2,{x,..]-0.0139828... but I upvoted your answer, too.

Links to answers for this issue are found in the section on NumericQ of this Q&A: What are the most common pitfalls awaiting new users?

comment Entropy of lists and sublists
Maybe you just want to use Entropy@Flatten@{...}? Or do you want the elements of a sublist to be renamed such that they aren't counted as duplicates of elements in the top level?

comment Entropy of lists and sublists
You're not being specific about how else you want the sub-list to be treated. Entropy is doing exactly what I would expect.

comment notebook scrolling problem in 10.2: worse than ever? how to fix?
I have also seen this in version 10.1 on Mac OS X, in a notebook with several hundred cells, even though it contained only a few images (total size less than 20MB). I was able to get it "unstuck" by trial and error, but don't have enough data points to know what's really going on. It could be the combination of large cell count and some large images. So instead of being worse in later versions, maybe it's just worse because your notebook has grown larger. Anyway, I'm just guessing, but agree that there is an issue. Could you add what OS you're using?

comment Plot using a list of variables
Do this: Plot[f,Evaluate@{Last[vars],0,10}]. The reason is that Plot has attribute HoldAll.
