Homework, MATH 410, Fall 2012
Homework is from our text (Fitzpatrick) unless indicated.
Homework is due at the beginning of class on the day listed.
Homework #1 (Friday Sept. 7)
1.1: 1d, 2, 5, 11b [you may assume #10], 17
1.2: 4 [but you don't have to justify your answer]
1.3: 1,2,7,12,19 [you may use #15]
Homework #2 (Friday Sept. 14)
1 Continuity and uniform continuity with
epsilon and delta
.3: 25a (prove by induction)
2.1: 1,7,8,10,11,14,16,18
 For #11,in each part give an
example of a sequence satisfying the usual definition of
convergence or the given definition, but not both
definitions.)
 Hint for #14: compute the first few sums to guess a formula,
and prove by induction that for all n the formula holds for the
sum of the first n terms)
 Hint for #16: (a+b)(ab)=a^2  b^2.
You can multiply expressions
by suitable quantities x/x without changing the value of the
expression ...

Above, e.g. a^2 means a to the second power, a times a.
2.2: 1,2
(For parts 1a,1b,1d,1e: if the statement is false,
then you can just write a correct counterexample sequence, without
justifying the counterexample.)
2.3: 8,9
Homework #3 (Friday Sept. 21)
2.3: 10,11
2.4: 1abcd and 2abce (write "True" without proof or write
"False" and give a counterexample); 2d (prove this); 3a;
12 (for 12, to show boundedness of the sequence, you are allowed
to be informal and simply draw the functional iteration picture
for the appropriate function)
2.5: 1,7
Prove Proposition C on
the handout "Open sets, closed sets and
sequences of real numbers".
Prove "Associated facts" number 4 and number 6 on
the "LIMINF and LIMSUP" handout.
Homework #4 (Friday Sept.28)
(Below: in the problem 1 in 3.1, 3.2 and 3.4: when the statement
is false, you can write down a correct counterexample without
justifying it.)
3.1: 1,4,14
3.2: 1,7
3.3: 6
3.4: 1, 5, 7
3.5: 1, 7c
Homework #5 (Wednesday Oct. 3)
3.6: 1, 8, 13
3.7: 2, 5, 11
4.1: 4a, 5ab, 9
Homework #6 (Friday Oct. 12)
4.2: 1, 2, 3
4.3: 5,19,20
Homework #7 (Friday Oct. 19)
6.1: 1, 3
6.2: 2 (In 2, just give an example showing the converse is not
true.),3,
6a (You can assume the formula of 4a.), 10, 12, 13
6.3: 4 (just show the left inequality  for sup  of each case);
also,
Problem X: is the upper integral of (f+g) always equal to
(upper integral of f) + (upper integral of g)?
Give a proof or counterexample.
Homework #8 (Friday Oct. 26)
6.4: 1,3,6, 7,9
6.5: 1, 6
6.6: 1bc,5,6,7 (just give an example for #7)
7.3: 1,2 (The game here is to recognize the sums as Riemann sums.)
Homework #9 (Friday Nov. 2)
8.1: 1bd,2ac
8.2: 1,3,10,11
8.3: 1b, 5 (Hint: show f satisfies (8.13).)
8.5: 8
Homework #10 (Friday Nov. 9)
8.6: 3
8.7: 4,5
9.1: 1 (for 1a, say for which pairs (a,p) the series converges),
3,7,8
Homework #11 (Wednesday Nov. 14)
9.2: 6
9.3: 1, 2,3
9.4: 2
Homework #12 (the last homework)(Monday Dec. 3)
9.4: 1
9.5: 1, 2, 6, 7, 8
Problem C*:
Let R denote the radius of convergence of
a given power series a_0 + a_1x + a_2x^2 + ... .
Let L denote limsup a_n^{1/n}
(where limsup is as n goes to infinity).
Here L could be zero, a positive real number, or +infinity.
Below, we define
1/L to mean zero if L is +infinity,
and we define
1/L to mean +infinity if L is zero.
Prove that R = 1/L .
