Vasconcelos Set 4 Spring 2008 Dirichlet Function Functional Limits Continuous Functions Workshop #6 Compact Sets Uniform Continuity The Inter Main Goal Understand useful functions f : A ⊂ R → R Dirichlet Function Functional Limits Continuous Functions Workshop #6 Compact Sets Uniform Continuity The Inter Building Blocks After building the real number set R , we treated various notions that will be used intensively: 1 Sequences ( a n ) and their limits (or lack of) ( a n ) → a 2 Distinguished subsets of R : neighborhoods, open sets etc 3 If f : R → R and ( a n ) is a sequence then ( f ( a n )) is also a sequence: a n → f → f ( a n ) If ( a n ) is an interesting sequence (what does this mean?) , for what types of functions f will ( f ( a n )) be interesting?

We say lim x → c f ( x ) = L provided that, for all > 0, there exists δ > such that whenever 0 <  x c  < δ (and x ∈ A ) it follows that  f ( x ) L  < . Let us walk through the functional limit template: 1 Let f : A → R , c limit point of A 2 Given > 0 that is, arbitrary 3 There is δ > 0 that is, δ is a function of and c 4 Such that <  x c  < δ ⇒  f ( x ) L  < Dirichlet Function Functional Limits Continuous Functions Workshop #6 Compact Sets Uniform Continuity The Inter Example f ( x ) = x sin ( 1 / x ) x 6 = x = Let us examine its continuity at c = 0: Let >  f ( x ) f ( )  =  x sin ( 1 / x )  ≤  x  Thus if we choose δ = , whenever  x  =  x  < δ ,  f ( x ) f ( )  < ....
