How would youde fine f (0 , y ) , y ∈ R , so as to make f a continuous function on R 2 ? Solution. For each y , if we fix it and find the limit of f at (0 , y ) with respect to x , we get lim x → f ( x, y ) = lim x → x 1 sin( xy ) = y , so we have to define f (0 , y ) = y . Let’s check that so defined f is, indeed, continuous on R 2 . For any x negationslash = 0 and any y we have f ( x, y ) = x 1 sin( xy ) = ( xy ) 1 sin( xy ) y = ϕ ( xy ) y, where ϕ is the continuous function ϕ ( t ) = braceleftbigg t 1 sin t, t negationslash = 0 1 , t = 0 . For x = 0 and any y we also have f (0 , y ) = y = ϕ ( xy ) y . Since the function μ ( x, y ) = xy is continuous, ϕ ( xy ) is continuous, and so is f . By d ( x, y ) I will denote the distance between points x and y of a metric space X ; in the case X = R n , d ( x, y ) =  x − y  . 1.3.9. Let U and V be open sets in R n and let f : U −→ V be a homeomorphism, that is, a onetoone mapping from U onto V such that both f and f 1 are continuous. Let S ⊂ U be such that S ⊂ U and f ( S ) ⊂ V . Prove that f ( ∂S ) = ∂f ( S ) ....
