Step 1
To use :
Vertical asymptotes :
The graph of y=f(x) have vertical asymptotes at those value of x for which the denominator is equal to zero.
Horizontal asymptotes:
If the degree (the largest exponent ) of the denominator is bigger than the degree of the numerator , the horizontal asymptotes is the xaxis(y=0).
If the degree of the numerator is bigger than the denominator ,there is no horizontal asymptotes.
If the degree of the numerator and denominator are same , the horizontal asymptotes equals the leading coefficient (the coefficient of the largest exponent ) of the numerator divided by the leading coefficient of the denominator.
Inflection point :
An inflection point is a point on the graph at which the the second derivative changes sign.
if f(x) > 0 then f (x) is concave upwards.
if f(x) < 0 then f (x) is concave downwards.
Step 2
To find Vertical asymptotes:
Use the definition of vertical asymptotes.
Set the denominator of the given function is zero.
Denominator of the given function is x.
To set the denominator is equal to zero.
To get,
x=0
Then, the vertical asymptotes of the given function f(x)=ln(x)x is x=0.
Step 3
To find the horizontal asymptotes:
To use the above definition of the horizontal asymptotes.
Let f(x)=ln(x)x
Here, the degree(the largest exponent) of the denominator is bigger than the degree of the numerator.To get, the horizontal asymptotes is y=0
Then,
The horizontal asymptotes of the function f(x)=ln(x)x is y=0.
Step 4
To find the inflection point:
To find the first and second derivative of the given function.
To use the quotient rule.
ddx(uv)=v dudx  u dvdxv2
Then,
ddx (ln(x)x)=x ddxln(x)  ln(x)ddxxx2
f(x)=1  ln(x)x2
Diffrentiate the f(x) again withrespect to x, to get,
ddx(1  ln(x)x2)=x2 ddx(1  ln(x))  (1  ln(x)) ddxx2x4
f(x)=2 ln(x) + 3x3
To find the inflection point:
To find where the f(x) is equal to zero or undefined.
To get,
x=e32, x=0.
Next, to identify the inflection point not in the domain or where f (x) is not continuous.
Also, Domain of the function f(x)=ln(x)x is x > 0
To get, f(x) is not dfined at x=0 and which is not in the domain of the given function.
To get,
x=e32 is the inflection point of the given funtion.
Next, to check the sign of f(x) in the domain of the given funtion.
To use the intervals: 0 < x < e32, e32 < x< .
Let f(x)=2ln(x) + 3x3
x=e32
a) 0 < x < e32
Sign: -
Behavior: Concave downward
b) x=e32
Sign: 0
Behavior: Inflection point
c)e32 < x < 
Sign: -
Behavior: Concave upward
Step 5
Next, plug the inflection point x=e32 into the given funcion.
To get,
f(x)=ln(x)x
=ln(e32)e32
=32ln(e)e32
=32e32
To get,

Tell me about this p-value in relatively simple but not too simple terms.
I've been reading many academic publications of late and come across it quite a few times without having a clear idea what it means. It's something about probability, isn't it? If it's less than, I believe, 0.05, then it's, whatever it is, not a simple coincidence but a real correlation, right?

Linear multivariate recurrences with constant coefficients
In the theory of univariate linear recurrences with constant coefficients, there is a general method of solving initial value problems based on characteristic polynomials. I would like to ask, if any similar method is known for multivariate linear recurrences with constant coefficients. E.g., if there is a general method for solving recurrences like this:
f ( n + 1 , m + 1 ) = 2 f ( n + 1 , m ) + 3 f ( n , m ) f ( n 1 , m ) , f ( n , 0 ) = 1 , f ( 0 , m ) = m + 2.
Moreover, is their any method for solving recurrences in several variables, when the recurrence goes only by one of the variables? E.g., recurrences like this:
f ( n + 1 , m ) = f ( n , 2 m ) + f ( n 1 , 0 ) , f ( 0 , m ) = m .
This second question is equivalent to the question, if there is a method of solving infinite systems of linear univariate recurrences with constant coefficients. That is, using these optics, the second recurrence becomes f m ( n + 1 ) = f 2 m ( n ) + f 0 ( n 1 ) , f m ( 0 ) = m , m = 0 , 1 , .
I am not interested in a solution of any specific recurrence, but in solving such recurrences in general, or at least in finding out some of the properties of possible solutions. For instance, for univariate linear recurrences, each solution has a form c 1 p 1 ( n ) z 1 n + + c k p k ( n ) z k n ,, where c i 's are constants, p i 's are polynomials and z i 's are complex numbers. Does any similar property hold for some class of recurrences similar to what I have written?
I have been googling a lot, but have found only methods for some very special cases (in monographs on partial difference equations, etc.), but nothing general enough. I am not asking for a detailed explanation of any method, but references to the literature would be helpful. I don't know much about transforms (like discrete Fourier transform or z-transform), but I found certain hints that there could be a method based on these techniques. Is it possible to develop something general enough using transform, i.e., is the study of transforms worth an effort (in the context of solving these types of recurrences)? However, it seems to me that the generalization of the characteristic polynomial method (perhaps, some operator-theoretic approach) could lead to more general results. Has there been any research on this topic?
