# Math Help - Prove limit inferior (lim inf) is measurable?

f_n measurable

Prove lim inf f_n is measurable?

There's supposedly a proof in Royden's Real Analysis, but unfortunately I do not have access to it.

Anyone?

Much appreciated.

2. for all a in R, {x in E: limsup{f_n: n in N}(x)>a},
={x in E: limsup{f_n(x): n in N}>a}
= Union {x in E: f_n(x) > a}
= a measurable set

Thank you. But that's for lim sup (I already knew that proof). For lim inf I can't just take the intersection as it messes up difference between >= and >. I think I have to go about by investigating the complements but I'm not sure.

4. omg.

lim inf f_n = -lim sup (-f_n)
