**Problem 1: **

Let f(x) be a real valued function defined for all x >= 1, that satisfies

f(1) = 1 and

f'(x) = 1/[x^2 + (f(x))^2]

Prove that lim f(x) as x tends to infinity exists and is less than 1+ pi/4.

**Problem 2: **

Suppose that a continuously differentiable function f : IR --IR satisfies

f'(x) = g(f(x)) + h(x) for x in IR,

where the functions g, h : IR ---IR are C 00 (i.e. infinitely differentiable). Prove that

the function f is infinitely differentiable as well.

**problem 3:**

Prove that if f : [0,1)--- IR is nonnegative, integrable, and uniformly

continuous, then lim f(x) =0 as x tends to 00.

**Problem 4:**

Suppose that a differentiable function f : IR ---IR and its derivative f'

have no common zeros. Prove that f has only finitely many zeros in [0, 1].

**Problem 5:**

Suppose that f : [0,1)---IR is continuous on [0,1), differentiable on

(0,00), f(0) = 0, and lim f(x) = 0 as x tends to 00. Prove that there exists a point c in (0,00) such

that f'(c) = 0.

Please don't post more than two questions in a thread. Otherwise the thread can get convoluted and difficult to follow. See rule #8: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...hp?do=vsarules.

Thread closed.
