    Homework 7 (due on Thursday March 5,2015) I highly recommend you attempt to turn in the homework to me on Thursday March the 5th or the latest on Friday March the 6th to Bishnu, I will be flying out of town on Friday so you want to make sure Bishnu gets the homework so he can grade it over the Spring break and you can get it back on Tuesday before the exam on Thursday March 19th).

  • Exercise 3.2.2(c) (exploring convergence and uniform convergence of a geometric power series)
  • Exercises 3.3.4-3.3.5 ( convergence of f_n(x_n) given uniform or pointwise convergence of f_n to f and convergence of x_n to x).
  • Exercises 3.6.1 and 3.7.3 (interplay between uniform convergence of series, integration and differentiation).
  • Bonus: Exercise 3.2.1 (connection between uniform convergence and uniform continuity)
    Reading Assignment: Chapter 3.

    Homework 6 (due on Thursday Feb 26,2015)

  • Exercise 2.2.4 (coordinate fcns are continuous),
  • Exercises 2.2.10 or 2.2.11 (jointly continuous in (x,y) implies continuous in each variable but not viceversa)
  • Exercise 2.3.2 (continuous real-valued functions on a compact set reach max -no need to show they reach min also)

  • Exercise 1.1.3 (b)(d) (examples of "sets and pseudometrics" that fail to be a metric)
  • Exercise 1.1.5 (Cauchy Schwarz in R^n and how to use it to get triangle inequality)
