When I first posted it on MO, it received a downvote, so I figured there might be something wrong with it and just deleted it.

I haven't gotten an answer on M.SE even after putting up a bounty on it though (and the bounty has almost run out...). I'm very keen on getting some sort of a definitive answer!

Is it possible to improve this question somehow to have it fit on MO, or does it just not belong here in any stretch of the imagination?

    $\begingroup$ I think that arsmath's comment on your question is as good an answer as you're going to get. I don't think this question is appropriate for MathOverflow. In general, given your background as described in the comments on math.stackexchange.com/questions/663823/… (i.e. an engineering student who doesn't know much pure math), I really don't think that you're going to be able to fruitfully use MathOverflow (as your numerous closed [and since deleted] questions demonstrate). $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 16, 2014 at 5:30
