# Math Help - Uniform Convergence

1. ## Uniform Convergence

Let $E=[0,2]$ and $f_{n}= \chi_{[1/n,2/n]}, \ n=1,2,....$ Show that $f_{n}$ converges almost uniformly on E but not uniformly.

2. To see convergence is not uniform, observe that for every $0<\epsilon<1$, no matter how large an n you pick, $|f_n|=1>\epsilon$ on $[1/n,2/n]$.

To see convergence is almost uniform, observe that the set above is the only set on which uniform convergence fails. So let $\epsilon>0$ and chuse n so large that $\mu([1/n,2/n]) =: \mu(B) < \epsilon$. Then $f_n$ restricted to [0,2]\B is identically zero, which clearly converges uniformly to 0.
