Monday 1:30pm-3:30pm. www.math.duke.edu/˜ mauro/teaching.html Reading: from Reed’s textbook: Section 4.3,4.5,4.6 Problems: §4.2: #2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 12 §4.3: #7, 11(a,b,d,e)-without using Taylor’s Theorem Additional Problems: 1. Examine the diﬀerence quotient used in the deﬁnition of the derivative of cos x and write down, but do not evaluate, the limits you need to know in order to compute cos′ x. In this context, what is wrong with your answer to # 4, §4.2? 2. Use Taylor’s theorem to show that if f and g are (n + 1)-times continuously differentiable functions on an open interval containing x0 , f (k) (x0 ) = g (k) (x0 ) = 0 for k = 0, 1, . . . , n, and g (n+1) (x0 ) = 0, then f (n+1) (x0 ) f (x) = (n+1) lim x→x0 g (x) g (x0 ) 3. Use 2. to compute x2 − sin2 x lim x→0 x2 sin2 x 4. In #11(a) above you showed that ln x → ∞ as x → ∞. Use a similar argument to show that 1 dt →∞ 1 t n 1 as n → ∞. (Pick an appropriate partition P of [ n , 1] and show that the corresponding lower sum tends to ∞ as n → ∞.) Conclude that ln x → −∞ as x → 0. ...
