Unformatted text preview: Theorem 13.3. Let ( t n ) be a sequence of real numbers. ( a ) If ( t n ) is increasing and unbounded above, then lim s n = + . ( b ) If ( t n ) is decreasing and unbounded below, then lim t n =- . Cauchy Sequences Denition 13.4. A sequence of real numbers ( s n ) is said to be a Cauchy sequence , if for any > 0, there exists N , such that m,n > N implies | s n-s m | < . Before stating the Cauchy convergence criterion, we state two useful lemmas. Lemma 13.5. Every convergent sequence is Cauchy. Lemma 13.6. Every Cauchy sequence is bounded. Theorem 13.7 (Cauchy convergence criterion) . A sequence of real numbers is convergent i it is Cauchy....
