can someone help me to prove that:

if y(t)> 0 and increasing function then:

y(t) tends to infinite as t tends to infinite ??!

thanks in advance,,

just!!i wona to tell u that :

y(t) is not a boundedhttp://www.bigsmileys.com/images/def...4/wow-girl.gif

Now that makes more sense and it would've made my "proof" valid.

So we have y(t) > 0, increasing and unbounded. For the function*not*to diverge (go to infinity), it would have to converge to a real value or oscillate. It cannot oscillate since it's increasing, y(b) > y(a) for every b > a. It can't converge to a real value (say L) either, since that would make it bounded (by L).
