Real Analysis - Banach Fixed Point Theorem

Prove the following generalization of the Banach Fixed Point Theorem: If T is a transformation of a complete metric space X into itself such that the nth iterate, T^n, is a contraction for some positive integer n, then T has a unique fixed-point.

Real Analysis - Newton's Method and showing convergence.

Newton's Method: Consider the equation f(x)=0 where f is a real-valued function of a real variable. Let x_0 be any initial approximation of the solution and let x_(n+1)=x_n - (f(x_n)/f'(x_n)). Show that if there is a positive number "a" such that for all x in [x_0-a, x_0+a] |(f(x)f''(x))/((f'(x))^2)|<=lambda<1 and |(f(x

Real Analysis - Show E is equicontinuous.

Let E be a set of differentiable functions in C[a,b] with uniformly bounded derivatives; i.e., there exists a number M, independent of f in E, such that |f'(x)|<=M for all x in [a,b] and all f in E. Show that E is equicontinuous.

Real Analysis : Bounded Open Balls

Sequences and Series (20 Problems): Partial Sums, Convergence and Divergence

Please do all problems below step by step showing me everything. Do simply as possible so I can clearly understand without rework. Adult here relearning so show all work, etc. OK, some said cannot read problems, but do not have a scanner with me know, so typed them in below. Sorry for any problems, but this shopuld clear up

Limits and L'Hopital's Rule

Find the indicated limit make sure you have a indeterminate form before you apply L'Hopital rule (1) lim xgo to0 arctan3x/arcsinx (2) lim x go to pi/2 3secx+5/tanx (3)lim x go to 0 2csc^2x/cot^2x evaluate dx/squrtpix a=0 andb=inifinity

Series : Absolute Convergence

Suppose the summation from k=1 to n of a_k is absolutely convergent and {b_n} is bounded. Prove that this implies the summation from k=1 to n of a_k*b_k is absolutely convergent.

Cauchy Sequence and Limit Supremum

Suppose that {a_n}_n is a real Cauchy sequence. Prove that lim superior n--> infinity (a_n) = lim inferior n--infinity (a_n) so as to conclude that lim n--infinity (a_n) exists.
