# Showing that convergence is not uniform

Not what you're looking for?

Let fk (x) = kxe - kx, k = 1, 2, 3, ...

It can be shown that the sequence {fk} infinity, k = 1, converges to 0

Pointwise on [0, +oo) but convergence is not uniform on [0, +oo).

a. Show that convergence is not uniform on [0, 1] either. Thus the sequence does not converge in the normed vector space (C ([0, 1]) , II·II infinity).

b. Does the sequence converge to 0 in the normed vector space (C ([0, 1]) , II·II 2 (subscript 2) )?. Even though you can compute the relevant integrals manually, it may be easier to make use of a computer algebra system.
