Darboux Integrability epsilon-delta proof
Hello all, I'm having trouble proving this theorem.
Suppose f is Darboux integrable, then for all there exists a such that mesh (P) < implies U_p(f) - L_p(f) < .
Let , and suppose f is Darboux Integrable.
If f is a constant we are done, if not pick , where k is the nth sub-interval of the partition P. M_k is the supremum of the function in that respective sub-interval, m_k is the infimum.
It follows that,
However, my instructor said that, I cannot pick that delta because the suprema and infima of the sub-intervals depend on the partition. I left out some steps, because the problem with the proof is the choice of delta.
Any thoughts on this? Thank you
