Math 1a B. Simon Fall 2005 HOMEWORK SET 8 DUE AT 1:00 PM ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2005 (1) [50 points] Suppose a n > a n +1 0 for all n . DeFne f ( x ) = s n =0 ( - 1) n a n x n (a) Prove that this series is absolutely convergent for | x | < 1. Suppose from now on that a n 0 as n → ∞ . That means n =0 ( - 1) n a n is convergent. The point of the remaining parts is to prove that lim x 1 f ( x ) = s n =0 ( - 1) n a n L ( * ) (b) Let f k ( x ) be the partial sum used to deFne f ( x ) where n runs from 0 to k . Prove that f 2 m ( x ) f ( x ) f 2 m +1 ( x ) (c) Given ε , Fnd N so n N ⇒ | f n (1) - L | < ε/ 2, and then δ so 1 - δ < x < 1 implies | f N + j ( x ) - f N + j (1) | < ε/ 2 for j = 0 , 1. Prove that if 1 - δ < x < 1, then | f ( x ) - L | < ε and conclude that ( * ) holds. (d) What is n =1 ( - 1) n +1 /n ? (e) Prove that 1 - 1 3 + 1 5 - 1 7
