MATH2400: Mathematical Analysis First Semester 2010 05/03/2010 Assignment Number 1 Problem 1 (4 points) Prove that if m and n are natural numbers and m 2 n 2 < 2, then ( m + 2 n ) 2 ( m + n ) 2 > 2 . Problem 2 (4 points) Prove (i.e. use an ε , N - argument): lim n →∞ n + 4 n = 1. Problem 3 (4 points) The elements of a logistic sequence { a n } are defined implicitly (for n N ) as follows: a n +1 = ka n (1 - a n ) , where k [0 , 4] and a 0 [0 , 1] are given. a) Prove that if k [0 , 1) and a 0 [0 , 1], then a n 0. b) Write a few lines about the occurrence of the logistic sequence in biology. Your lines should not be from Wikipedia. Problem 4 (5 points) a) Give a reasonable, precise definition for what lim n →∞ a n = and lim n →∞ a n = -∞ should mean. (This is sometimes described as the sequence diverging to infinity, or minus infin-
