Unformatted text preview: Math 8601. November 17, 2010. Midterm Exam 2. Problems and Solutions. Problem 1. Find lim n →∞ 1 n + 1 n + 1 + ··· + 1 2 n- 1 . Solution. After rewriting S n := 1 n + 1 n + 1 + ··· + 1 2 n- 1 = 1 n n- 1 X k =0 1 1 + k n , one can see that this is a Riemann sum for the integral 1 R (1 + x )- 1 dx . Therefore, lim n →∞ S n = Z 1 dx 1 + x = ln(1 + x ) 1 = ln2 . Problem 2. Let f ( x,y ) be a function defined on the unit square { ( x,y ) ∈ R 2 : 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 , ≤ y ≤ 1 } , which is continuous in each variable separately. Show that f is a Borel measurable function of ( x,y ). Proof. For integers n = 1 , 2 ,..., define the functions F k,n ( x,y ) := f ( x, 0) · χ { } ( y ) + 2 n X k =1 f x, k 2 n · χ I k,n , where I k,n := k- 1 2 n , k 2 n , For fixed y , the function f ( x,y ) is continuous in x , therefore it is Borel measurable in x (Corollary 2.2), hence F k,n ( x ) are Borel measurable in ( x,y ). We obviously have F n ( x, 0) ≡ f ( x, 0) for all x ∈ [0 , 1], and...
