So there is a natural number N such that ε ˜ the third term is smaller than 4 whenever n, m ≥ N . 1 ◦ Finally, if ≥ m , the last term is smaller than m . ˜ Choose any natural number N ≥ max N , 4 . I claim that xn − xm V < ε whenever n, m ≥ N . ε To see this, let n, m ≥ N . Now choose to be any natural number bigger than max Nn,m , n , m . ε Then the four terms in (2) are each smaller than 4 . (n) Proof that X = lim X : Let ε > 0. By definition n→∞ X − X(n) H = lim m→∞ xm − x(n) m V ( m) x = lim m→∞ m − x(n) m V By the triangle inequality ( m) x m − x(n) m ( m) V ≤x m (n) −x n (n) V +x n − x(n) m V (3) (n) ◦ Since the sequence xn = x n n∈IN is Cauchy, there is a natural number N such that the ε first term is smaller than 2 whenever n, m ≥ N . 1 ◦ By the construction of n , the second term is smaller than n whenever m ≥ n . Choose any natural number N ≥ max N , 2 . I claim that X − X(n) H < ε whenever n ≥ N . ε To see this, let n ≥ N . Now choose m to be any natural number bigger than max N , n . Then ε the two terms in (3) are each smaller than 2 . September 7, 2011...
