Continuity on R of Series

  1. Aug 13, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Show that [tex]\Sigma[/tex] (from n=1 to infinity) of sin(nx)/n^2
    is continuous on R

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    No idea, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, that would depend on what you're allowed to use. But uniform convergence of the series pretty much implies it immediately. And showing uniform convergence is easy.

    Otherwise, I imagine it's a bit trickier, and I'd have to think about it.

    I am allowed to use uniform convergence. Thanks!
