One way of seeing it:

Absolute value is a continuous function so

Where it was used the fact that since when then as well, we have

Certainly i dont understand how that step is done,

in fact it would seem to me that doesnt make any sense since the left side does not depend on x.

Returning to the proof, earlier we had that

for all n if

Taking and using the continuity of the abs value we get that since if then ,

in our case :

if then .

And we end up having from where the proof follows quite easily. - May 22nd 2010, 12:30 PMRandom Variable

Either a typo or some argument (which is not clear, at least for me) equivalent to the n-limit one. So far i dont see any flaws on this one.
