Some supplementary equations have been provided for the generalized model for conic flexure hinges [G. Chen et al., Rev. Sci. Instrum. 80, 055106 (2009)] for the purpose of avoiding division-by-zero issues (having zeros in their denominators) in programming languages such as MATLAB, C, and FORTRAN. Some typos have been corrected as well. In comparison, these equations are more concise and effective.

    We show that a well-known identity of Ramanujan admits only a bounded number of solutions over general finitely generated domains. The bound is explicit and uniform in the sense that it depends only on the dimensions of the domains involved. Our method is constructive, and opens up a possibility...
