Weierstrauss Theorem:
if a function
f
:
X
!
R
is continuous and
X
is
compact, then
f
achieves a maximum on
X:
Notation (ball): A ball with radius
"
around a point
x
is denoted as
B
(
x; "
)
:
A set
X
is bounded if, for each

there
exists an

there exists some

Translation:
a sequence converges if it±s possible for me to keep getting
closer and closer to the limit point
x;
and once I get close (i.e. once I get
within
"
of
x;
I never move farther away.
A set
X
is closed if no sequence of points in
X
converges to a point outside of
X:
