### $f\in C(\mathbb{R})$. What does it mean?

$f\in C(\mathbb{R})$. What does it mean? My guess is "Differentiable on $\mathbb{R}$" but I'm not sure.. Thanks.

### Properties inherited by $f\circ g$ from $f$

Suppose $f,g:\mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}$ Prop: Suppose $g$ and $f \circ g$ are ______, and $g$ achieves every value in $\mathbb{R}$. Then $f$ is ______. If in the blanks we put the word ...

### The inverse of a Moment generating function

The moment generating function of $X$ is $M_X(t) = \mathbb{E}[e^{tX}] = \int e^{tu}f_X(u)du$ where t is a complex variable and $f_X$ is the density of X. The cumulant generating funtion of $X$ is ...

### Prove there's $M>0$ such that: $f(x)\le Mx^2$

Let $f:[-1,1]\to\mathbb{R}$, three-times differentiable function and $f(0)=0$, $f(x)\ge 0$ for all $x\in[-1,1]$. Prove there's $M>0$ such that $f(x)\le Mx^2$. Hint: use Taylor formula. So ...

### Prove $f$ isn't uniformly continuous

I already proved (followed by an hint) that $f(y)-f(x) > x(y-x)$ for all $y>x>0$. I need to prove $f$ isn't uniformly continuous on $(0, \infty)$. What I did: Lets assume by contradiction ...

### Is there a uniformly continuous function such that $a_{n+1} = f(a_n)$?

Let $a_{n+1} = a_n - a_n^2$ and $a_1 = \frac{2}{3}$. I already proved that $a_n \to 0$ Now I was asked, is there a uniformly continuous function such that $a_{n+1} = f(a_n)$? All I can think of is ...

### Behaviour of the function $\ln(1+ x^2)$

Thus function has derivative equal to: $\frac{2x}{1+x^2}$. This indicates that it will flatten out while approaching infinity, ie, should have an asymptote. Yet, the function does not have any real ...

### Why doesn't this converge?

Why doesn't $$\int_{-1}^1 \frac{1}{x}~\mathrm{d}x$$ converge? I mean you would think that because of symmetry the area from the negative side and positive side cancel out, resulting in the integral ...

### Intuitive and convincing argument that functions are vectors

Back to school time again. As I'm discussing all the mathy stuff and insights gained over the summer, I cannot help but notice that many of my peers in second or third year undergrad cannot bridge the ...

### Assumptions that can be made for $f(x) + xf '(x)\leq 0$

I am wondering if we can make any assumptions about a function $f$ i.f.f. it satisfies $$f(x) + xf '(x)\leq 0 \qquad\forall \;x>0\;?$$

### Limit of a function is unique [closed]

I have read the proof of this property. The uniqueness of a limit of a function: Spivak's proof I was thinking we can also prove this informally by using the definition of function. For a ...

### $f$ is uniformly continuous on $(a, b]$ implies $\lim\limits_{x\to a^+} f(x)$ exists and finite

I need to prove: $f$ is uniformly continuous on $(a, b]$ implies $\lim\limits_{x\to a^+} f(x)$ exists and finite Now, I already have a sketch for the proof: Let $\{x_n\}$, a sequence such ...

### Higher-order derivative test

Let $f:I\rightarrow \Bbb{R}$ $2007$ times differentiable at $x_0 \in I$. Also: $f'(x_0) = f''(x_0) = ... = f^{(2006)} = 0$ but $f^{(2007)} > 0$. Prove there's $\delta> 0$ such that $f$ is ...

### Intervals on which function is increasing and decreasing

Let $p(x)=x^5-q^2x-q$ , where $q$ is a prime number. I want to understand how to determine when the function will be decreasing and increasing on the intervals given below. We compute ...
how do I go forward with sketching the graphs of the following two functions? i) $y(t)=|2+t^3|$ ii) $f(x)=4x+|4x-1|$ thanks in advance!
