Let on be a bounded sequence. In this workshop, we will derive several results about the
numbers called lim inf an and lim supan- Let. us define new sequences bn and Cn as follows:
In other words, bn is the greatest lower bound of the set {ax : kej and le n} and Gn is
the least upper bound of the same set {at : * € J and le n).
Problem (1) Prove that on is a bounded monotone sequence. This implies that bn
converges to some real number. This real number is called lim inf an. In other words, ba
converges to liminfan-
Problem (2) Prove that Cn is a bounded monotone sequence. This implies that Cn
converges to some real number. This real number is called limsupan- In other words, Cn
converges to lim sup an-
Problems (1) and (2) give us the definitions of lim inf an and lim supon- Now we can prove
some theorems about these concepts:
Problem (3) Prove the existence of a suhsequence of an such that this subsequence
converges to lim inf an-
Problem (4) Prove the existence of a subsequence of an such that this subsequence
converges to lim sup on-
Problem (5) Prove: If an has a subsequence that converges to a, then lim inf on <05
limsupún-
Problem (6) Prove: If liminfan = limsupan then an converges to a, where a =
lim inf an = lim supan-
Problem (7) Prove: If an converges to some a, then lim inf an = lim sup On. The result
in Problem (6) then implies a = liminfan = lim sup on-
