Real Analysis : Continuity, Closed and Open Sets and Differentiability

Prove OR disprove the following statements. Explain. (i) There is a nonempty set S in R ( real numbers) such that S contains none of its limit-point(s). (ii) There is a nonempty set S in R such that S is neither open nor closed. (iii) There is a nonempty set S in R such that S is both open and closed. (iv) Let a

Real Analysis : Differentiability and Sequence of Partial Sums

A). Prove that the function f(x) = e^x is differentiable on R, and that (e^x)' = e^x. ( Hint: Use the definition of e^x, and consider the sequence of partial sums.) My thoughts on a: I tried to prove the differentiability by proving continuity on R, since e^x is series, sum of polynomials, and all polynomials are different

Closure, Convergence, Differentiability, Integrability, Sequences

Prove or disprove the following statement. Provide detailed answer and justify all steps. 1). There is a nonempty set S in R such that closure of S is equal to R and the closure of its complement closure(R-S) also is equal to R. My thoughts on this problem: Q ( rationals) and R-Q (irrationals), but how to prove that the cl

Sequences : Limits and Convergence

This question is from Advanced Calculus II class, it is more like introduction to real analysis. Let f_n: R -> R be the sequence of functions given by f_n(x) = x/ ( 1 + nx^2) a). Prove that the sequence f_n converges uniformly to a function f. What is f? b). Prove that for each x in R-{0} ( all real numbers but 0 not in

Real Analysis : Lebesgue Measure

Show that the sum and product of two simple functions are simple. Show that [Definition of simple: A real-valued function is called simple if it is measurable and assumes only a finite number of values. If is simple and ahs the values then , where .] This problem is from Royden's Real Analysis text for gradu

Central limit theorem for a company

Let's say you work in a company where over 2000 people are employed. Using the Central Limit Theorem, where the mean age of all employed is 37 with a standard deviation of 13; If 5 people are randomly selected, find the probability of their age being less than 22.

Average Value of Continuous Functions and Limits

The definition of average value of a continuous function can be extended to an infinite interval by defining the average value of f on the interval [a, ∞) to be Lim as t approaches ∞ 1/(t-a)integrand from a to t f(x)dx 1. Find the average value of {see attachment} on [0, ∞). 2. Find the lim as x goes t

Real Analysis : Proofs - Uniform Continuity

S(1): Let &#949;=1, and let any &#948;>0 be given. S(2): Let n be an integer > max(1, 1/&#948;), and set x=1/n and y=1/(n+1). S(3): Both x and y belong to (0,1), and |x-y| = 1/n(n+1) < 1/n < &#948;. S(4): However, |f(x)-f(y)| = |n-(n+1)| = 1 = &#949; S(5): This contradicts the definition of uniform continuity (i.e.,

Real Analysis : Fold Lines

By an n-fold line subdivision of the plane P, we mean any collection of n-distinct (infinite) lines in P, together with the open regions in P that they determine. (We don't count the lines as part of the regions.) Let us say that two such regions are adjacent if their boundaries have a positive-length or infinite line segment
