(Moved from Differential Equations, not sure where exactly this belongs)
Suppose I have an odd, increasing function h with h(0)=0 and an unknown increasing function f(D), f(0)=0.
Let:
where is the standard normal pdf
From the above equation, we can see that D spans the real line and the when the RHS is > 0 so is the LHS and vice versa.
But, I can rewrite the above equation as:
which does not make sense since the LHS is > 0 and the RHS is < 0
