Homework 4 – Math 118A, Fall 2009 Due on Thursday, October 29th, 2009 1. Prove that in a metric space ( X, d ), a sequence { p n } n N converges to p X , if and only if every subsequence of { p n } n N converges to p . 2. Find the upper and lower limits of the sequence { s n } de±ned by s 1 = 0; s 2 m = s 2 m - 1 2 ; s 2 m +1 = 1 2 + s 2 m . 3. Prove that for any x , y R n , < x , y > = 1 4 ( k x + y k 2 - k x - y k 2 ) . 4. In R n we de±ned earlier k x k p = n X i =1 | x i | p ! 1 /p , and saw that k·k p is a norm if p 1. Prove that k·k p does not derive from an inner product, unless p = 2, that is to say, there does not exist an inner product in R n such that k x k p = < x , x > 1 / 2 x R n , unless p = 2. 5. Given p 1, ±nd constants c p > 0 , d p > 0 such that c p k x k p ≤ k x k d p k x k p , x R n . 6. For every 1 p, q ≤ ∞ , ±nd constants c p,q > 0 , d p,q

Dene the distance from x to A by d ( x , A ) = inf d ( x , y ) y A . Prove that d ( x , A )-d ( y , A ) d ( x , y ) x , y X. 1 2 8. Let 0 &lt; x 1 &lt; y 1 . For n 1, set x n +1 = x n y n , y n +1 = 1 2 ( x n + y n ) . Show that lim x n and lim y n exist and are equal. ( Hint: Check that &lt; x n &lt; y n , y n +1 &lt; y n , and x n &lt; x n +1 ) ....
