(a) Show that h f n i converges uniformly on R . Proof. Let > 0. Choose N = 1 . Let n N * . Assume n > N . Let x R . Then  f n ( x )1 2  =  n + cos x 2 n + sin 2 x1 2  =  n + cos x( n + 1 2 sin 2 x ) 2 n + sin 2 x  =  cosx1 2 sin 2 x 2 n + sin 2 x  <  2 2 n  = 1 n < 1 N = So f n 1 2 uniformly on R . I.e., f n f uniformly on R , where f is the constant function f ( x ) = 1 2 . (b) Calculate lim n R 7 2 f n ( x ) dx . Since f n 1 2 uniformly on R , lim n R 7 2 f n ( x ) dx = R 7 2 1 2 dx = [ 1 2 x ] 7 2 = 7 22 2 = 5 2 . 25.15 Let h f n i be a sequence of continuous functions on [ a , b ]. Suppose that, for each x [ a , b ], h f n ( x ) i is a nonincreasing sequence of real numbers. (a) Prove that if f n 0 pointwise on [ a , b ], then f n 0 uniformly on [ a , b ]. Proof. Assume that f n 0 pointwise on [ a , b ]. Together with the hypothesis about nonincreasing, this implies that for each x and n , we must have f n ( x ) 0. Well proceed by contradiction. (A direct proof using ideas from section 13 is sketched later). Suppose that f n does not converge to 0 uniformly on [ a , b ]. Then there is a xed > 0 such that for each integer k , there exist n k > k and x k [ a , b ] with  f n k ( x k )  . Let z = lim inf x k . Then z [ a , b ]. Date : August 7, 2006. 1 2 BENJAMIN JOHNSON Since h f n ( z ) i 0, there is an N R so that ( n > N )(  f n ( z )  < 2 )....
