23.16. (With f as in the statement of the problem), we show that sup ( f, P ) = as P ranges over all partitions of [0 , 1]. By divergence of the harmonic series, it suffices to fix n N and produce a partition P of [0 , 1] such that ( f, P ) 2 π n X k =1 1 k . For k = 0 , . . . , n , put a k = 2 (2 k + 1) π ; then 0 < a n < · · · < a 0 < 1. Put P = { 0 , a n , . . . , a 0 , 1 } . Then: ( f, P ) = p a 2 n + f ( a n ) 2 + n X k =1 p ( a k - a k - 1 ) 2 + ( f ( a k ) - f ( a k - 1 )) 2 + p (1 - a 0 ) 2 + ( f (1) - f ( a 0 )) 2 n X k =1 p ( a k - a k - 1 ) 2 + ( f ( a k ) - f ( a k - 1 )) 2 n X k =1 | f ( a k ) - f ( a k - 1 ) | = n X k =1 ( a k + a k - 1 ) (high-school trig) = 2 π n X k =1 4 k 4 k

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
