Math 5615H: Introduction to Analysis I. Fall 2011 Homework #10 (due on Wednesday, November 16). 50 points are divided between 4 problems. #1. (12 points). The sequence { a n } is defined by a 1 = 0 , and a n +1 = 2 a n / 2 for n = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . . Prove that { a n } is convergent and find its limit. You can use without proof the fact that the function y = f ( x ) = a x , where a > 0 , a ̸ = 1, is strictly convex , i.e. f ( tx 1 + (1 t ) x 2 ) < t f ( x 1 ) + (1 t ) f ( x 2 ) for all x 1 < x 2 and 0 < t < 1 . #2. (12 points, Exercise 6(a–c) on p.78). Investigate the behavior (convergence or divergence) of
