Solution: There are 3 cases: | x | < 1, | x | = 1, and | x | > 1. In case | x | < 1, then x 2 n → 0 as n → ∞ , which implies that f n ( x ) → 0 as n → ∞ for | x | < 1. In case | x | = 1, then x 2 n = 1 for all n , so f n ( x ) → 1 2 when | x | = 1. In case | x | > 1, then divide the numerator and denominator by x 2 n to see that f n ( x ) → 1 when | x | > 1. This shows that f ( x ) = lim n →∞ f n ( x ) exists for all x , but f is not continuous at the points x = ± 1, which implies that the convergence is not uniform (as each f n is continuous and uniform limits of continuous functions are continuous). (2) Define f n : [0 , 1] → [0 , 1] by f n ( x ) = x n (1- x ). Prove that f n converges uniformly to 0....
