You have 50 minutes to complete this exam. Problem 1. (a) Let f : A → R where A ⊂ R . State the definition for f to be uniformly continuous on A . (b) Which of the following functions are uniformly continuous on [0 , ∞ )? (i) f ( x ) = sin( x 2 ) (ii) f ( x ) = 1 x +1 Proof. (a) A function f : A → R is uniformly continuous on A if for every ² > 0 there exists a δ > 0 such that for every x,y ∈ A ,  x y  < δ implies that  f ( x ) f ( y )  < ² . (b) (i) No. Let the sequence of points ( x n ) be defined by x n = 2 nπ and the sequence of points ( y n ) be defined by y n = 2 nπ . Then we have  f ( x n ) f ( y n )  = fl fl fl fl f ( √ 2 nπ ) f ( r 2 nπ + π 2 ) fl fl fl fl =  sin(2 nπ ) sin(2 nπ + π/ 2)  = 1 . Also notice that  x n y n  → 0 as n → ∞ . So for any ² ≤ 1 and for any δ > 0 there exists an N ∈ N such that  x n y n  < δ , but we have that  f ( x N ) f ( y N ) ...
