We know that this has lower limit ≥ −1. | cos(2 2πn) + 1| < . (c) Claim. Thus. we have | cos(x) + 1| < √ by periodicity. Proof. Proof. if |x − (2m √ + 1)π | < δ . As above. √ ´∞ 0 sin(t2 )dt converges. Then. we see√ there is an x ≥ M with x = 2 2πn for some n ≥ N and |x − (2m + √1)π | < δ for some m ∈ Z. so it suces to show the upper limit of cos(x ) − cos((x + 1) lower limit √ ) is 2 and the 2 2 of cos(x ) − cos((x + 1) ) is −2. Hence. from which it follows that the lower limit of cos(2 2πn + 1) is −1. cos(A2 ) 2A → 0 as A → ∞. From (b). (d) Claim. We have √ √ 2 cos(x2 n ) − cos((xn + 1) ) = cos(2πn) − cos(2πn + 2 2πn + 1) = 1 − cos(2 2πn + 1) where we have used cos(A + B ) = cos(A) cos(B ) − sin(A) sin(B ). Then. The proof that √ the lower limit of xf (x) = −1 is similar with π (2n + 1) in place of 2πn. Let > 0. we need only show cos(2 2πn + 1) has lower limit −1. Let δ > 0 be such that |x − π | < δ =⇒ | cos(x) + 1| < . we have cos(1) cos(A2 ) − − 2 2A ˆ 1 A2 sin(t2 )dt = 1 cos(u) u2 3 du and ´ A2 1 cos(u) 3 u2 du is absolutely convergent. The upper and lower limits of xf (x) are 1 and −1 respectively. Consider the sequence formed by taking xn = 2πn for n ∈ Z+ . 1 We know x|f (x)| < 1 by (a). we have xf (x) = 2 (cos(x2 ) − cos((x + 1)2 ) + r(x)) where 2 2 r(x) → 0 as x → ∞. as 2 2πn → ∞as n → ∞. Let M > 0 and nd N > M such that 2 √2π (n + 1) − 2 2πn < δ for n ≥ N .
