Example text

In Example (1) above, un = 2n. Since the domain of a sequence is known to consist of integers, we often omit it and give only the range Du′ , specifying the terms un in the order of their indices n. Thus, instead of (1), we briefly write 2, 4, 6, . . , 2n, . . or, more generally, u1 , u2 , . . , un , . . , along with the still shorter notation {un }. Nevertheless, whatever the notation, the sequence u (a set of ordered pairs) should not be confused with Du′ (the set of single terms un ). A sequence need not be a one-to-one mapping; it may have equal (“repeating”) terms: um = un (m = n).

In what case do these formulas hold with “f −1 ” replaced by “f ”? In what case are they true for both f and f −1 ? 8. , prove that (i) f −1 Ai = f −1 [Ai ]; (ii) f −1 Ai = f −1 [Ai ]. 9. If f is a mapping, show that f [f −1 [A]] ⊆ A and that if A ⊆ Df′ , then f [f −1 [A]] = A. In what case do we have f −1 [f [A]] = A? Give a proof. 10. Which (if any) of the relations ⊆ and ⊇ holds between the sets f [A] ∩ B and f [A ∩ f −1 [B]]? Give a proof. 11. The characteristic function CA of a set A in a space S is defined on S by setting CA (x) = 1 if x ∈ A, and CA (x) = 0 if x ∈ / A.

Hint: Show that qk ≥ qk+1 , k = 1, 2, . . , the maximum term qk cannot increase as the number k of the dropped terms increases. ] ∗ 9. From Problems 7 and 8 infer that every infinite sequence of real numbers {un } has an infinite monotonic subsequence. ] 10. , with domain {1, 2, . . , p}, can one form, given that the range of the sequences is a fixed set of m elements? 11. Let {An } be an infinite sequence of sets. For each n, let n Bn = n Ak , k=1 Cn = ∞ Ak , k=1 Dn = ∞ Ak , k=n En = Ak . k=n Show that the sequences {Bn } and {Dn } are expanding, while {Cn } and {En } are contracting.
