I am having a doubt in a proof of an article and I am only have the pdf of that article means How can I post Question in some part of the article?

Can I upload that pdf? If so, how?

And if we rewriting a proof of some theorem stated in a book. Is there any possibility to get corrections and comments from good mathematicians online by posting the complete article through any stackexchange forum?

  • $\begingroup$ You post contains several unrelated questions, some (maybe all) of them have been discussed here. For question about uploading see Can I upload a pdf file along with a question/answer?. $\endgroup$ Jan 1 '15 at 11:08

    $\begingroup$ However, you can still post a link to the pdf file with the article. But you should try to make post self-contained. As you can easily check some people include images from books and papers in their posts. (You can try to export them from the software you use to view the file. Some people simply take screenshot.) See also this discussion: On the inclusion of pages-of-text-as-images in questions. $\endgroup$ Jan 1 '15 at 11:12

    $\begingroup$ I am not entirely sure what you mean by complete article. Posting a paper was discussed in Submitting a paper for review. But if you want to post your solution of some exercise from a textbook, this is certainly allowed. See here, here and other questions linked to these two. $\endgroup$ Jan 1 '15 at 11:17

Questions about the details of particular proofs in published articles and books are on topic. But they should be as self-contained as possible. Reproduce the relevant part, and give a reference/link to the source for additional context.

(If retyping a few paragraphs sounds like too much work, then you don't really need to ask the question.)
