Math 1a B. Simon Fall 2005 HOMEWORK SET 6 DUE AT 1:00 PM ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2005 (1) [40 points] The purpose of this problem is to prove the existence of the limit of Riemann sums using only monotone sequences. This problem will only discuss 1 / 2 spacing. One can use the argument in the Notes comparing 1 /m and 1 /mn to compare 1 / 2 spacing to 1 /m spacing and get convergence of general Riemann sums. Let f be a uniformly continuous function on [0 , 1] and deFne J n ( f ) = 1 2 n 2 n 1 s j =0 sup j 2 n x< j +1 2 n f ( x ) and K n ( f ) = 1 2 n 2 n 1 s j =0 inf j 2 n x< j +1 2 n f ( x ) (a) Prove that K n ( f ) K n +1 ( f ) J n +1 ( f ) J n ( f ). (b) Using the deFnitions of J n ( f ),
