### Prove that $(z_n)_n$ is bounded $\Rightarrow$ $(w_nz_n)_{n\geq 1}$ is a null sequence (a sequence tending to $0$)

Let $z\in \mathbb{C}$, $(z_n)_{n\geq 1} \subset \mathbb{C}$ and $(w_n)_{n\geq 1}$(a null sequence) be sequences. Prove that $(z_n)_n$ is bounded $\Rightarrow$ $(w_nz_n)_{n\geq 1}$ is a null ...

### Let $f:\mathbb{R}^2\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$ is a function. And $f_{xx}$ and $f_{yy}$ exist and continuous. Is $f$ a twice differenced function?

Obviously, it is true if $\delta>0$ imply $2f(x+\delta, y+\delta)-f(x+2\delta, y)-f(x, y+2\delta)=o(\delta^2)$. But this result I can't prove too.

### Characterization of measurable functions mapping into banach space via simple functions?

This is a statement I read in Lang's Real and Functional Analysis Chpt VI, Sec 1, M8. M8. A map $f:X\to E$ with $E$ finite dimensional real vector space is measurable if and only if $f$ is a limit ...

### Is there an exception to the law of large numbers?

I was reading about the law of large numbers, and under its strong formulation it says that the sample average converges almost surely. That means that it may exist a finite subset with measure $0$ ...

### Solving an infinite sum using integration or derivation

There is an infinite sum given: $$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{n^22^n}$$ It should be solved using integration, derivation or both. I think using power series can help but I don't know how to finish ...

### Find $\lim_{(x, y)\to(1, 1)}\frac{x^y-y(x-1)-1}{(x-1)^2 + (y-1)^2}$

$\lim_{(x, y)\to(1, 1)}\frac{x^y-y(x-1)-1}{(x-1)^2 + (y-1)^2}$ I am trying to use squeeze theorem but I am having trouble with finding an upper bounding convergent to 0 (I believe that 0 is the limit)...

### Change the order of minimum in sums

Is it possible to change the order of minimum as i did below: $$\min_w \sum_x\sum_y f(x,y,w)^2 = \sum_x \min_w \sum_y f(x,y,w)^2$$ If for all $x$ we have $$\min_w \sum_y f(x,y,w)^2,$$ then could I ...

### $\lim_{x \to 0} \frac{e^{2x} - \ln(1-x) - \sin(x)}{\cos(x)-1}$ using Taylor Expansions

As a preface- a very similar question is here: Using Taylor expansion to find $\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} \frac{\exp(2x)-\ln(1-x)-\sin(x)}{\cos(x)-1}$ But, my actual question is, when we substitute the ...
