ECN/APEC 7240 Spring 2010 Homework 6 Due 3/31/10 1) Let f : R R be a continuously differentiable function with a fixed point x *. Suppose that | f ( x *)| < β < 1. a) Use Taylor’s Theorem to show there exists a neighborhood U of x * such that if we restrict f to U then f will be a contraction of modulus . b) Let x 0 U and define the dynamical sequence { x n } by x n +1 = f ( x n ). Show that { x n } U and that x n converges to x *. 2) Let ( X , d
