Let {fr} be a sequence of continuous real-valued functions that converges uniformly to a function f on a set EC R.

It was Weierstrass who, in the 1850s, realized what additional assumptions were needed to ensure that the limit function of a convergent sequence of continuous functions was again continuous. Recall from Definition 8.1.1, a sequence {fr} of real-valued functions defined on a set E converges pointwise to a function f on E if for each x E E. given e > 0, there ex- ists a positive integer ng n.(x, e) such that \$(.*) – f(x) 0, there exists a positive integer n, such that f(x) f(x) 0, there exists a positive integer no such that || fn – follow
