A few days ago I asked this question. So far it has zero score and has not received any answers or comments. I am starting to wonder if my question is even on topic.
My question here is this: is the linked post a good, on topic question for Math Stack Exchange.
I'm sorry, but I am extremely desperate for an answer to the question, and I really don't know what to do about it. I am starting to lose faith in the bounty system: a while ago I started a bounty on a closely related question and it received a lot of views, but no answers. The newer question was actually asked in the hope that the answer would give some insight into the older, more general question.
