Starting us off with an easy one.

How exactly do I show a sequence is Cauchy? Example: Prove [math]x_{n} = \frac{1}{n}[/math] is Cauchy

Writing the definition: [math]\forall \hspace{0.2cm}\epsilon > 0 \hspace{0.2cm} \exists \hspace{0.2cm} N \in \mathbb{N} \hspace{0.2cm} \text{such that} \hspace{0.2cm} \forall \hspace{0.2cm} m,n,\geq N, \hspace{0.2cm} |x_{n} - x_{m}| < \epsilon [/math]

One can write: [math]\left| \frac{1}{n} - \frac{1}{m}\right| <\epsilon [/math] but how do you generally proceed from here?

>> No.9280933

Is this correct?

Choose epsilon to be [math]\frac{\epsilon}{2}[/math] Since [math]m, n > N[/math],

[math] \left| \frac{1}{n} - \frac{1}{m} \leq \left| \frac{1}{n} \right| + \left| \frac{1}{m} \right| < \frac{\epsilon}{2} + \frac{\epsilon}{2} = \epsilon [/math]

>> No.9280935

[math] \left| \frac{1}{n} - \frac{1}{m} \right| \leq \left| \frac{1}{n} \right| + \left| \frac{1}{m} \right| < \frac{\epsilon}{2} + \frac{\epsilon}{2} = \epsilon [/math]

can someone help? I have absolutely no clue how to do it other than by solving the recurrence which I doubt we'd be asked to do for this given the wolfram alpha result.

>> No.9280938

but how do you generally proceed from here?
It depends on the situation.
On this one for example you can write [math] | \frac{1}{n} - \frac{1}{m} | < | \frac{1}{n} | + | \frac{1}{m} | = \frac{1}{n} + \frac{1}{m} < \frac{\varepsilon}{2} + \frac{\varepsilon}{2} = \varepsilon [/math] for some m and n greater than some number. [math] \frac{1}{n} < ε [/math] when n is greater than some number follows from the Archimedean property of the real numbers.

>> No.9280952

Use the equivalence relation that says a sequence in [math]\mathbb{R}^n[/math] is convergent iff it is Cauchy. To prove that it is Cauchy it is enough to prove that it converges. In the case of [math]x_n=\frac{1}{n}[/math], it's clear that [math]0<x_n\leq 1[/math], meaning the sequence is bounded, and [math]x_m<x_n[/math] whenever [math]m>n[/math], meaning it's decreasing (i.e., it is monotone). The monotone sequence theorem tells you, then, that this sequence is convergent, and therefore it is Cauchy.

>> No.9280966

seems right but don't I have to solve the recurrence to do that?

>> No.9280969 [DELETED] 

You need a compact set for Banach's fixed point theorem.
You can use Banach to prove that it converges if you start inside the set [math] A_N = [-N,\sqrt{2}] \cup [\sqrt{2},N] [/math] for [math]N > 2[/math].
Then use that fact to conclude it converges if you start in the set [math] A = (-\infty, \sqrt{2}] \cup [\sqrt{2},\infty] [/math] and only then prove the general case.

Reposting. Can anyone show how to get this solution?

>> No.9280990

Let's consider an easier example.

Only difference here is I have selected an initial condition.

Let [math]x_{1} = 1[/math] and [math]x_{n+1} = \sqrt{1+x_{n}} [/math].

First show the sequence is increasing by doing induction. Recall what it means for it to be increasing, [math]x_{n+1} \geq x_{n}[/math] for all [math]n[/math]. These problems are great for induction.

Next, the boundedness. It should be obvious that [math]x_{n} \geq x_{1}[/math] for all [math]n[/math]. The upper bound then is the challenge. Claim: [math]x_{n} \leq 2[/math] for all [math]n[/math]. This is another proof by induction.

Now you've shown it's monotone and bounded, therefore it converges, and this it's limit exists (and it's value is quite interesting).

>> No.9280994

Put x[n+1]=x[n]=x, to get
=> x^2=x^2/2+1
=> x^2/2-1=0
=> x^2=2
=> x=+/-sqrt(2)
If x[n] is +ve, x[n+1] must be positive. If x[n] is negative, x[n+1] must be negative.

Note that the recurrence is a specialisation of
x[n+1] = (x[n]+k/x[n])/2
for k=2. The generalised form is known as the "Babylonian method" or "Heron's method" for calculating the square root of k. If x=sqrt(k), then x=k/x=(x+k/x)/2

>> No.9280997

If [math]f : E \rightarrow F[/math] and [math]B[/math] is a subset of [math]F[/math], how does one show that [math]f^{-1}(F [/math]\[math] B) = E [/math]\[math]f^{-1}(B)[/math] ?

Not really. You have to break it to two cases.
Case 1:
x0 is in the interval [math] [ \varepsilon , + \infty ) [/math] . xn converges to [math] \sqrt{2} [/math] . Contraction can be proven by the mean value theorem and the fact that the derivative is always less than 1/2.

[math](x_{n})[/math] converges, so [math]\forall \epsilon > 0 \exists N \in \mathbb{N} [/math] such that [math] \forall n \geq N , |x_{n} - L | < \epsilon [/math]

How do I relate these two?

>> No.9281050

It's a basic theorem.
Fucking google it.

>> No.9281052

Proof: Think

Because the sequence is monotone you can bound every term in the sequence between two of the terms of the convergent subsequence. And then as n goes to infinity, the distance between the terms of the convergent subsequence go to 0.

So you can proceed in either of two ways: Use this to prove the general sequence is Cauchy or even better: conjecture that the limit of the sequence is the limit of convergent subsequence and then do your epsilon magic.

There are 13 denominations in a 52 card deck so you can get 13 different sets of 4 cards of a kind.

For each of the 13 possibilities, you will have 52 - 4 = 48 cards remaining. So then there are 48 possible 5th cards for each 4 of a kind.

If there are 48 "versions" of each and 13 possible 4 of a kind hands, then you have 13 * 48 = 624 possible 5 card hands with 4 of a kind.

If you didn't follow that then you need some basic combinatorics knowledge: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_product

So then the statement "n/n = 1" is incomplete, or at least the "for n not equal to 0" is implicit. It seems like there is an analogy to the congruence relation in modular arithmetic, like a ≡ b (mod n), b ≡ c (mod n) then a ≡ c (mod n). Similarly f(n) = n/n = 1 = g(n), when we say f(n) = g(n) by the transitive property, we can't do so without maintaining the implicit restriction that they are equal WHEN n != 0, which arose when we set n/n = 1.

I've seen congruence modulo written with the modulus over the triple bar, so there is some sense in which the restrictions under which an equality holds are "attached" to the equality?

I think this question is hard to answer both well and concisely.

If you think a bunch about the rules of chess, you can come up with some theorems about how chess works. Maybe you can develop some new rules which follow logically from the "basic" rules which are set out in the definition of the game. Furthermore, maybe you can extend those idea outside of chess to tell you things about systems which are related to chess. Mathematics is about doing that, in general, for all kinds of different sets of rules.

Key observation: A rectangle can be tiled by [math] 2 \times 3 [/math] if and only if that rectangle can be constructed by stitching together [math] 2\times 3 [/math] tiles. So lets instead investigate all the ways to stich together these tiles.

The easiest way would be by putting a [math] 2 \times 3 [/math] tile on the plane and calling that the main corner. And then stitching together some tiles next to it horizontally and some other tiles next to it vertically. You can then proof that the rest of the rectangle can be filled in properly.

If we let there be [math] x [/math] horizontal rectangles and [math] y [/math] vertical rectagles, the rectangle we created will have side lengths [math] m = 2x, n=3y [/math] so the set of pairs we are looking for is simply

You can write d/dq as d/dq = ip where p is the momentum conjugate to q. q is a real observable, thus p is real as well. So d/dq is imaginary as you say.

You can also verify from stipulating that [a,a^\dag] = 1 (since you said they are raising operators). Then you can show [d/dq,q]=1 and since you know [x,p]=i, you can work out the rest.

this must intersect the other 3 lines so

a+ ((b+c)/2 - a)*t = b+ ((a+c)/2 - b)*v
a+ ((b+c)/2 - a)*t = c+ ((a+b)/2 - c)*u

No, it would not work.
A map T is orthogonal iff ||Tv||=||v|| For All v in the vector space; not just the basis vectors.
For example consider the map which takes i to i=(1,0) and j to 1/sqrt(2)(1,1).
It's obviously not orthogonal.

But, if the images of i and j are orthonormal, i.e. have unit length like i and j do AND they are orthogonal, then the map is orthogonal.

The easiest solution is a ripple-carry adder: 4 full adders where the carry-out from one stage is fed to the carry-in of the next stage. Each full adder has 3 inputs, so that's only 2^3=8 rows in the truth table.

The disadvantage of ripple-carry adders is that the propagation delay from the least-significant input bit to the most-significant output bit is proportional to the number of bits.

More advanced designs avoid this at the expense of requiring more gates. The extreme is a minterm (disjunctive normal form, sum of products) solution which is only 2 gates deep but requires an exponential number of gates.

it took me like 2 hours to go through all this since i suck
but the point is that they have W=1.38*10^12 ft-lbs and I think it should be 32.2(1.38*10^12) ft-lbs. (since 32.2 ft/s^2 = 9.8 m/s^2 probably obviously)

ai) [math]F=m\cdot a[\math] so [math]a=\frac{F}{m}[\math] which ends up giving me an acceleration of [math]\frac{4}{3}ms^{-2}[\math]
Then [math]W=F\cdot s[\math] which gives work as 96.0J
ii) so assuming that W=E here its going to be [math]v=\sqrt{\frac{2W}{m}}[\math] which gives a speed of [math]4\sqrt{\frac{2}{3}}ms^{-1}[\math]

b) the power applied at the start is nothing right due to the initial velocity being 0 seeming it starts from rest so the ending power will be calculated as [math]P=F\cdot v[\math] which I get as [math]96\sqrt{\frac{2}{3}}W[\math]

c) This is where things get fucked up and the prior power calculation gives me the same value as you and my acceleration and velocity time gives me root 6, so where am I going wrong.
