# Dominated Convergence with continuous variable?

Let $f(x,y)$ be a real valued function of two variables, defined for $a<y<b, c<x<d$. Assume that for each $x, f(x,.)$ is a Borel measurable function of $y$, and that there is a Borel measurable function $g: (a,b)\to$ $\Bbb R$ such that $|f(x,y)|<= g(y)$ for all $x,y$ and $\int_a^bg(y) dy <\infty.$ If $x_0\in (c,d)$ and $\lim_{x \to x_0}f(x,y)$ exist for all $y\in (a,b)$, show that $$\lim_{x \to x_0}\int_a^bf(x,y) dy = \int_a^b[\lim_{x \to x_0} f(x,y)]dy$$

(Can we use Dominated Convergence Theorem to prove this?)

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields.

How about: $\lim_{x \to x_0} \phi(x) = L$ if and only if for every sequence $x_n$ with $x_n \to x_0$ we have $\lim_{n \to \infty} \phi(x_n) = L$. – GEdgar Oct 23 '12 at 16:59
