f is continuous and

$\displaystyle

f:[a,b] \rightarrow ]0,\infty[

$

Show that the supremum of f(x) on [a,b] equals

sup f(x) = lim{n->infinity} (1/(b-a) * int[(f(x))^n])^1/n

The integral is from a to b

Latex Attempt:

$\displaystyle sup_{a{\leq}x{\leq}b}f(x) = lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} [\frac{1}{b-a}\int_a^b (f(x))^n]^\frac{1}{n}

$
