# Prove $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}f_n'(x)<\infty$ on $(0,1)$, when non-negative and increasing function $\lim_{x\to \infty}\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}f_n(x)<\infty$

When $f_n$ if non-negative and increasing on $(0,\ \infty)$

$$\lim_{x\to \infty}\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}f_n(x)<\infty$$

Prove that $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}f_n'(x)<\infty$$ on $(0,\ 1)$ a.e $[m]$.

Is there the question means $f$ is differentiable? If so I will try mean value theorem.

If not, I am totally stuck at the beginning, since $f$ is not mentioned absolutely continuous or f' belong to $L^1(m)$, I have no idea how to connect $f'$ and $f$ here.

What is $f_n$? $\$ – Martin Argerami Nov 29 '12 at 3:22

Hint: there is a positive measure $\mu_n$ on $(0,\infty)$ such that $\mu_n((0, x)) = f_n(x) - f_n(0)$. Decompose $\mu_n$ into its singular and absolutely continuous components.
