comment HoldForm doesn't hold form
@Mr.Wizard I'll look at it when I get a chance to upgrade. I'm currently happily using a computer with only version 8 installed.

comment Strange opacity behavior
Thanks for doing the comparison of approaches in your answer here, which I strangely overlooked until now.

comment Strange behaviour of MMA in derivatives of some standard functions
I tried to figure out what the question is about, but I honestly can't think of any way to answer here.

comment Strange opacity behavior
I think you should do the second code block first. Lately I've been using that trick in the form of a function, see e.g. here.

comment Mathematica isn't sure whether a sum of two positives is positive or not
@jim Since I don't know what prevents Refine from working, it will be very hard to give a general cure for this problem. Here is another idea: see if you get an empty set by applying Assuming[0 < x < 1 && 0 < y < 1 && 0 < z < 1, FindInstance[$Assumptions && Not[statement], {x, y, z}]]. That's all I can think of right now.

If the goal is to do the time-stepping yourself, then I think it's a duplicate of RK4 Gravity Simulator.

comment What is the equation to plot a vertical line?
A related question is Calling Correct Function for Plotting DiracDelta. Not the same because the plot has value 0 away from the spike.

comment Solve Laplace equation using NDSolve
@SantiCarmesí For the gradient and field strength, you can use my answer here. The error message in the potential plot appears because the inner boundary isn't sampled quite accurately. One can get rid of this by first defining rm=RegionMember[\[CapitalOmega]] and then replacing the plot argument sol[x,y] by If[rm[{x,y}],sol[x,y],100].

comment Is there a built-in function which detects singularities in a function?
@Artes I agree on the closeness because the intention here was originally to find points of non-differentiability, too. But I interpreted the usage of "singularity" here to be more general. E.g., Abs[x]^2 would be differentiable but still singular.

comment Is there a built-in function which detects singularities in a function?
Clearly FunctionDomain can yield True for non-analytic functions, such as the third one (or anything with singularities in higher derivatives). But it does detect the Tan singularities (as does my answer).

comment Is there a built-in function which detects singularities in a function?
@Dr.WolfgangHintze I added the arbitrary c because I can't specify a numerical expansion center, since that may happen to be a special point of singularity. E.g., 1/x can't be expanded around 0, but it can be expanded around c. So I avoid unnecessary error messaged this way. Maybe this could be eliminated if instead I catch such errors differently...
