Sample text

Technically, the sequence diverges, but we want to say that it “goes to” both −1 and +1. To formulate this urge better, note that if we throw away the odd numbered terms, we get a new sequence which converges to +1, whereas if we instead throw away the even terms, we get a sequence converging to −1. A sequence obtained from {xk } by “throwing away terms” is called a “subsequence”. }. Then we can define a new sequence by yi = xki , i = 1, 2, .... This new sequence {yi }∞ i=1 consists of selected terms of the original ∞ sequence {xk }k=1 in the same order as they appear in the original ∞ sequence; we call {yi }∞ i=1 a subsequence of {xk }k=1 .

However, there are many sequences which diverge without so regular a pattern. We shall see some examples later. So in some sense, divergence to infinity is more “like” convergence than other kinds of divergence: the only formal difference is that instead of taking ε > 0 and requiring |xk − y| < ε in the case of convergence to y, we take any real number M (or m) and require xk > M (resp. xk < m) for divergence to ∞ (resp. −∞). For convergence, “better accuracy” means ε small; for divergence to ∞, it means M large positive and for divergence to −∞ it means m large negative.

2 2. we say the sequence converges to y (denoted xk → y) if it approximates y with every accuracy ε > 0. 2. 3: The sequence {xk } converges to y To establish that a particular sequence in R approximates a particular number with a specific accuracy ε > 0, we need to name a specific value of K and then show that it fits the definition (that every xk from this place on satisfies the required error estimate). But we can be fairly generous in choosing which K to name. We don’t have to name the most efficient one: if some higher value for K makes it easier to establish the estimate, we use it!
