Example text

3. Let f and f1 be as in the preceding exercise and let g2 (y) = inf{f (x, y) : x ∈ X}. Prove that sup{g2 (y) : y ∈ Y } ≤ inf{f1 (x) : x ∈ X} (We sometimes express this as supy inf x f(x, y) ≤ inf x supy f(x, y)). Chapter 4 Metric Spaces There are three basic theorems about continuous functions in the study of calculus (upon which most of calculus depends) that will prove extremely useful in your study of economics. They are the following: 1. The Intermediate Value Theorem. If f : [a, b] → R is continuous and if r ∈ R such that f(a) ≤ r ≤ f(b),then ∃c ∈ [a, b] such that f(c) = r.

Theorem 92 Let x, y, z ∈ R. (i) If x > y and y > z, then x > z. (ii) Exactly one holds: x > y, x = y, x < y. (iii) If x ≥ y and y ≥ x, then x = y. Proof. 2 Finish the proof of Theorem 92. 4) The next theorem is one of the simplest we will encounter, yet it is one of the most far-reaching. 4 Theorem 93 (Half the distance to the goal line) If x, y ∈ R with x > y, then x > 12 (x + y) > y. Proof. x > y ⇒ x + x > x + y and x + y > y + y ⇒ 2x > x + y > 2y. Now we deÞne a very useful functoin on R that assigns to each real number its distance from the origin.

By alternating between the Þrst and second rows. This is formalized in the next example. 36 CHAPTER 2. SET THEORY Example 74 The set of integers, Z, is countably inÞnite. The function f : Z → N deÞned by ½ 2z if z > 0 f (z) = −2z + 1 if z ≤ 0 is a bijection. 2 Prove that a Þnite union of countable sets is countable. Next we examine whether N × N ∼ N. 1. As in the preceding example, each row has inÞnitely many elements but now there are an inÞnite number of rows. Yet all of the elements of this ”inÞnite matrix” can be enumerated if we start from (1, 1) and then continue by following the arrows.
