If you find a mistake, please let me know ASAP so I can correct it. Also, I have taken liberty of omitting some details that arent necessary for me to repeat. However, if you dont understand a step I have omitted, ask for clarification. 2. Week 5 1. Suppose f n f uniformly on S . Let > 0. Then N N such that n > N =  f n ( x ) f ( x )  < / 2 x S Then for m,n > N , we get  f n ( x ) f m ( x )   f n ( x ) f ( x )  +  f ( x ) f m ( x )  < / 2 + / 2 = which implies { f n } is uniformly Cauchy. 2. Part (a). Let x [0 , 1). Then x n 1+ x n x n . The comparison test implies then that X x n 1 + x n X x n = 1 1 x Therefore the series converges. Part (b). Let a [0 , 1). For any x [0 ,a ], observe that X x n 1 + x n X a n 1 + x n X a n = 1 1 a Therefore, by the Weierstrass Mtest (with M n = a n ), the series converges uni formly on [0 ,a ]. Part (c). The series does NOT converge uniformly on [0 , 1)! Remember the definition of uniform convergence of a series: n =1 g n g uniformly if and only if the sequence of partial sums s k (= k n =1 g n ) g uniformly. Then using Remark 24.4, we can say that g n g uniformly if and only if lim n sup x S { g ( x ) s n ( x ) } = 0 In our case where g n ( x ) = x n 1+ x n and g ( x ) = n =0 x n 1+ x n , observe that sup x [0 , 1) { g ( x ) s n ( x ) } = sup x [0 , 1) X k = n +1 x k 1 + x k = X 1 / 2 = Therefore the supremum is infinite for all n , so the limit is note 0, hence does not converge uniformly....
