Capsules By Courses. We are organizing the capsules into courses, when possible using the same topics as are used in Course Communities. So far we have organized capsules for the following courses:

Given a positive integer \(m\), the authors exhibit a group with the probability \(1/m\) that two randomly selected elements commute.

The author uses Newton`s impact method to compute the centripetal force exerted on a particle moving uniformly on a circumference of a noneuclidean circle.

The author revisits formulas of measuring solid angles that he could find only in centuries-old literature, and provides modern versions of the proofs.

This article links two seemingly unrelated problems, one in probability and the other in dynamical systems, and shows they are actually one involving Fibonacci numbers.

The authors state and prove a theorem on the number of partitions of an integer into consecutive parts.

The rule of integration by parts is proven visually.
