    Pointwise convergence

    Let E=[0,\infty) and f_{n}=\frac{1}{n} \chi_{[0,n]}, n =1,2,.... Show that \{f_n\} converges pointwise to the function f \equiv 0 on E, {f_n} is uniformly bounded on E but

     \int\limits_{E} f \ dx \neq \lim_{n \to \infty} \int\limits_{E} f_{n} \ dx

    Does this contradict the bounded convergence theorem.
