Real Analysis : Convergent and Cauchy Sequences

See attached file for all symbols. --- ? For each of the follwing statements decide if it is true or false. Justify your answer by proving, or finding a couter-example. 1) every bounded sequence of real numbers is convergent. 2) Every convergent sequence is monotone. 3) Every monotone and bounded sequence of real number

Real Analysis: Proof Regarding Continuity and Belonging to Sets

Let C be the Cantor set defined C=intersection sign on top inf bottom n=0 C_n.Define g:[0,1]->R by g(x)={1 if x belong to C and 0 if x does not belong to C. a-show that g fails to be continuous at any point c belong to C. b-prove that g is continuous at every point c does not belong to C.

Constructing Functions with Discontinuities

For each of the following choices of A,construct a function f:R->R that has discontinuities at every point x in A and is continuous on A^c(compliment) a-A=Z b-A={x:0<x<1} c-A={x:0<=x<=1} d-A={1/n:n belong to N}.

Real Analysis

(Composition of continuous Functions).Given f :A->R and g:B->R, assume that the range of f(A)={f(x):x belong to A} is contained in the domain of B so that the composition g o f(x)=g(f(x)) is well-defined on A.If f is continuous at c belong to A, and if g is continuous at f(c) belong to B, then g o f is continuous at c. -Supply

Determining If Series are Convergent or Divergent

(a) A certain infinite series (some of whose terms are positive and some of whose terms are negative) is known to converge, but does not converge absolutely. Explain how this is possible, by giving two such example series. (b) Determine whether each of the attached infinite series converges or diverges. See the attached file

Extrema and Rolle's Theorem

See attachment. 1) Locate and classify the extrema of the following functions: Justify your answer 2) Let be continuous functions, such that f(0)+g(0)=0 and f(1)+g(1)=0. assume also that f, g are also differentiable for every use Rolle's theorem to show that there exists an , such that (see the attachment).

Euler's Identity

Recall the Taylor series Sum(x^n/n!). The same series can be used to define e^z for a complex number z=a+bi. Use the Taylor series to show that exp(iy) = cos(y) + i sin(y) for any real number y. To do this substitute iy into the series and compute several terms. Look for patterns. See the attached file.

Real Analysis : Open Intervals

Real Analysis : Connectedness and Convergent Sequence

Show that A set E subset or equal to R is connected if and only if, for all nonempty disjoint sets A and B satisfying E=A U B there always exists a convergent sequence (x_n)-->x with (x_n) contained in one of A or B and x an element of the other.

Real Analysis : Sequences and Limits

Definition: A set A subset or equal to R is called an F_&(F sigma) set if it can be written as the countable union of closed sets. A set B subset or equal to R is called G_&(G sigma) if it can be written asthe countable intersection of open sets. 1-Argue that a set A is a G_& (G sigma) set if and only if its complement is

Real Analysis Divergence

Please show proper notation, justification and step by step work. n See attachment for problem Given that the zeros for (sinx)/x are the values x=0, x= +-pie, x=+-2pie, x=+-3pie,.... (x=0 must be excluded, why?) This implies that F(x) can be factored as follows F(x) = (1-(x/pi)) (1-(x/-pi)) (1-(x/2pi)) (1-(x/3pi))
