comment Plotting the results of iterating a function
There is no $c$ in your code. Essentially what you are trying to do is work out the Mandlebrot set just along the real line, which is the boring part of the set. It might help to have some more explanation of what you are trying to do.

comment How to plot CDF of a Poisson distribution in Mathematica
You probably could have worked this out by searching in the documentation for "poisson distribution", yielding PoissonDistribution, and "log plot", yielding a range of hits including ListLogPlot, LogPlot etc.

comment Plotting different PDFs of a distribution in the same graph
@Chris: Also have a look at MapThread. But this is really a separate question.

comment Is Mathematica a Turing-complete language?
Well Rule 110 is Turing complete, and Mathematica can implement Rule 110, so... yes?

Or is it the yellow background and border/text styles that you like?

comment Just what kind of transformations can TransformedDistribution handle?
My answer is no longer an answer to your question since your edits, so I have deleted it.

comment Bordermatrix from LaTeX
@Jens I know, I didn't enforce matching dimensions or lengths of objects (limited lunch break time), but it would be straightforward to do.

In particular, I think Mr Wizard's answer to my earlier question is what you want.

Please also stop posting clarifications to your question as "answers".

Glad to help - tell your friends :-)

It will be helpful if you register your account. Right now you have three different ones, with your reputation points fragmented across them.

comment How to get graph layout that reflects edge weights?
This doesn't really answer the question. The OP would like the layout of the graph to reflect the weight of the connection, i.e. for distances between nodes to be shorter, the higher the weight. I'm also interested in the answer.

comment BoxWhiskerChart too slow on big datasets, how to speed it up?
Andrey, can I also suggest that you register? Any future posts will then be linked properly to each other.

comment How do Forms affect the interpretation of Expressions?
@David - I wouldn't delete - it is exactly the sort of thing that will trip up newer and intermediate users, so having an answer they can find on mathematica.SE is a good idea.

@b.gatessucks - I have a business trip next week so if you can report if F'x's answer works for you, it would be very helpful.

And to be fair, I haven't looked at that notebook in about a decade, and it only includes the KPSS test.

comment Solve Lagrange multipliers optimization problem
What values can $h$ take? $\alpha$ only seems to enter into the derivatives if $h$ is nonzero. I don't think this comment could be considered an answer, but the reason you are having issues is that you are solving a really complicated expression in six unknowns, with three other algebraic entities ($h$, $s$ and $t$ still being left as algebraic symbols. You might have better luck with something like N@Simplify[deriv /. {t -> 0, a -> -1, h -> 1}, Assumptions -> {ts > 0, hs > 0, as > 0}] and then NSolve that. I just made those values for $h$ etc up.
