# Lipschitz Functions

Does uniform convergence on a closed and bounded interval preserve Lipschitz functions?
(Assume that the sequence of functions has a common Lipschitz constant $K$).

I must be missing something obvious, but won't ordinary pointwise convergence preserve $K$-Lipschitz functions? –  Jesse Madnick Jul 26 '12 at 4:10
@JesseMadnickHow are you proving it ? –  Ester Jul 26 '12 at 4:18

If $f_n\colon [a,b] \to \mathbb{R}$ each satisfy $|f_n(x) - f_n(y)| \leq K|x-y|$ for all $x, y \in [a,b]$, then just by taking the (pointwise) limit as $n \to \infty$, we obtain $|f(x) - f(y)| \leq K|x-y|$.
This reminds me of the following fact: If $\{f_n\}$ is a sequence of (uniformly) equicontinuous functions $[a,b]\to \mathbb{R}$, then $\{f_n\}$ converges pointwise if and only if $\{f_n\}$ converges uniformly.
I have one question: does it hold also for Holder functions? I mean: is the pointwise limit of $\alpha$-Holder functions still $\alpha$-Holder? –  Romeo Jul 26 '12 at 8:28
