Given [itex]\epsilon > 0 [/itex], suppose [itex]\omega_f(x) < \epsilon [/itex] for each [itex]x \in [a,b] [/itex]. Then show there is [itex]\delta > 0 [/itex] such that for every closed interval [itex] I \in [a,b][/itex] with [itex] l(I)< \delta[/itex] we have [itex]\omega_f(I) < \epsilon [/itex]. My first approach to this was trying to think of it as an anaglous to the definition of continuity. However, it would appear, at least to me, that we are talking about a "uniformly" oscillating interval. I'm just not sure how to prove this. My first idea was simply, since I know that things are [itex] \epsilon [/itex] spaced, I could always pick intervals small enough. I'm not sure how to do this rigorously.
