A sequence $a_n$ converges to $+\infty$ iff it has $+\infty$ as it's only partial limit

In one of my books there was an exercise to prove that: A sequence $a_n$ converges to $+\infty$ iff it has $+\infty$ as it's only partial limit (I know a sequence doesn't really converge to ...

Sequential compactness in $\mathbb{R}$

Well known result: Suppose $f:\mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}$ is continuous and let $K$ be a compact set. Then, $f(K)$ is compact. I can prove this using the definition of compactness (finding a ...

If $f_n(t):=f(t^n)$ converges uniformly to continuous function then $f$ constant

Let $f \colon [0,1] \to \mathbb R$ be continuous and let $f_n$ be defined by $$f_n(x):=f(x^n), \qquad x \in [0,1], \,\, n \in \mathbb N.$$ Suppose there exists a continuous function $g$ on ...

For what $\alpha$ does the series converge: $\sum^\infty_{n=2}\frac {1}{n^\alpha\log_2(n)}$

Let $\alpha\ge 0$ check for what $\alpha$ does the series converge: $$\displaystyle\sum^\infty_{n=2}\dfrac {1}{n^\alpha\log_2(n)}$$ I tried the condensation test and get: ...

$a_{n+1}=a_n-a^2_n$ show the recursion sequence is convergent and find its limit

Let $a_1=\frac 2 3 , \ a_{n+1}=a_n-a^2_n$ for $n\ge 1$. Show the sequence is convergent and find its limit. In order to show convergence, I need to show that it's monotone and bounded. ...

Proof Check: Every Cauchy Sequence is Bounded

Sorry if I keep asking for proof checks. I'll try to keep it to a minimum after this. I know this has a well-known proof. I understand that proof as well but I thought I'd do a proof that made sense ...

Prove that any unbounded sequence has a subsequence that diverges to $∞$.

To prove that any unbounded sequence has a subsequence that diverges to ∞, is it enough to say that you can take a subsequence $(a_{m(k)})$ where $m(k)=k$, as you know that this diverges to infinity, ...

I know the limit of a subsequence exists, but how do I find it?

I know intuitively that for: $(a_n) = (1,1,2,1,2,3,1,2,3,4, ...)$ for any $m$ in the positive natural number there is a subsequence (m,m,m,..) that tends to m as n tends to infinity. I believe I ...

Is any of this true about infinite series of functions?

Let $f_n^+(x)$ be a sequence of non-negative functions $f_n^+: X \to \Bbb{R}_{\geq 0}$, such that each $f_n^+$ has countably many zeros. Then if $f(x) = \sum f_n^+(x)$ converges point-wise, the ...

Find maximal possible sum of a tricky series

for $a \in R$, $n \in N$ let $a_n$ closest distance between $a$ and $\frac m {2^n}$, where $m \in Z$. Find maximal possible sum of a series: $\sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n$ I came up with solution for the ...

Non-increasing Monotone Sequence Convergence Proof

My goal is to prove the monotone convergence of a non-increasing sequence of real numbers. There are some steps in the proof that I'm not sure about. The question: If $S$ is a non-increasing sequence ...

Proof that if $\lim s_n=0$ then $\lim\sqrt{s_n}=0$

Here's the question: Suppose $(s_n)$ is a sequence of non-negative real numbers, and $\lim( s_n) = 0$. Prove that $\lim(\sqrt{s_n})=0$. Here's my proof. Can someone please verify it or offer ...

If a sequence of functions converges uniformly, then its limit is bounded

Let $\{f_n\}_{n=1}^{\infty}$ be a sequence of functions defined on $[a,b]$ Assume that each $f_n$ is bounded, so $|f_n| \le M_n$ for all $x \in [a,b]$. If $\{f_n\}_{n=1}^{\infty}$ converges uniformly ...

Proof that a sequence has a convergent subsequence

I have a bounded sequence $a(n)$. We consider the set of all the values of $a(n)$ and let $M$ be the supremum of this set (without being one of its elements). Now we want to show that there is a ...

Proving summation identities [duplicate]

How would one go about proving the following identities? $$\sum_{i=1}^n \sum_{i\neq j}^n \frac{z_i}{z_i-z_j} = \frac{n(n-1)}{2}$$ \sum_{i=1}^n \sum_{i\neq j}^n \frac{z_i^2}{z_i-z_j} = ...
