ECN/APEC 7240 Spring 2010 Homework 6 Solutions 1) Let f : R R be a continuously differentiable function with a fixed point x *. Suppose that | f ( x *)| < β < 1. a) There exists δ > 0 such that if x R and 0 < | x - x *| < then . *) ( ' *) ( ' * *) ( ) ( x f x f x x x f x f - < - - - Thus by the reverse Triangle Inequality, , *) ( ' *) ( ' * *) ( ) ( *) ( ' * *) ( ) ( x f x f x x x f x f x f x x x f x f - < - - - - - - so . * *) ( ) ( * *) ( ) ( x x x f x f x x x f x f - < - < - - Note also that 0 = | f ( x *) - f ( x *)| < | x * - x *| = 0. Thus for all x V = ( x * - , x * + ), | f ( x ) - f ( x *)| < | x - x *|. Furthermore, since f ( x *) = x *, , * * ) ( βδ < - < - x x x x f so f ( x ) V . Now suppose f ( x *) 0. Then since f is continuous and | f ( x *)| < there exists ε (0, ] such that | f ( x )| < for all x U = ( x * - , x * + ). Let x , y U such that x < y . By the Mean-Value Theorem, there exists z ( x , y ) such that ). ( ' ) ( ) ( z f x y x f y f = - - Thus . ) ( ' ) ( ) ( x y x y z f x f y f - < - = - Therefore f is a contraction with modulus .
