QE in Department of Mathematics, National University of Singapore, August 2009

I have just passed QE held in August 2009 for my first attendance, I hereby show you the analysis paper

Question 1 [10 marks]. Suppose f and g are both measurable functions on the interval (0,1) such that for all t \in \mathbb R^1

| \{ x \in(0,1):f(x)\geq t\}| = |\{ x\in (0,1):g(x)\geq t\}|

Assume that f and g both are monotone decreasing and continuous from left. Can you conclude that f(x)=g(x) for all x \in (0,1)? Give the reason to support your answer.

Question 2 [10 marks]. Compute the volume of the region bounded by

{\left( {{a_{11}}x + {a_{12}}y + {a_{13}}z} \right)^2} + {\left( {{a_{21}}x + {a_{22}}y + {a_{23}}z} \right)^2} + {\left( {{a_{31}}x + {a_{32}}y + {a_{33}}z} \right)^2} = 1

where the determinant of the 3 \times 3 matrix (a_{ij}) is NOT equal to zero.

Question 3 [10 marks]. Let D be a measureable set in \mathbb R^n with finite measure. Suppose \phi(x,t) is a real valued continuous function on D \times \mathbb R^1 such that for almost every x \in D, \phi(x,t) is a continuous function of t and for every real number t, \phi(x,t) is measurable function of x. If \{f_n\} is a sequence of measurable functions on D that converges to f in measure, show that \{\phi(x,f_n(x))\} converges to \phi(x,f(x)) in measure.

Question 4 [10 marks]. Find the function

I\left( y \right) =\displaystyle\int\limits_0^\infty {{e^{ - a{x^2}}}\cos \left( {yx} \right)dx}

if a>0 is a constant. Justify your answer.

Question 5 [10 marks]. Compute the intergal

\displaystyle\int\limits_0^\pi {\frac{{x\sin x}}{{1 + {a^2} - 2a\cos x}}dx}

where a>0 is a constant.

Question 6 [10 marks]. Supposet f(z) is a holomorphic function on the complex plane \mathbb C. If f locally keeps the area invariant, what will the function f be?

Question 7 [10 marks]. Is there an analytic function f on \Delta (unit disk in the complex plane with center 0) such that |f(z)|<1 for |z|<1 with f(0)=\frac{1}{2} and f'(0)=\frac{3}{4}? If so, find such an f. Is it unique?

Question 8 [10 marks]. Let m<n be two positive integers and \Omega and G be open subsets in \mathbb R^n and \mathbb R^m respectively. Does there exist a map f :\Omega \to G such that f and the inverse of f are both C^1? Justify your answer.

Question 9 [10 marks]. Is there a square integrable function f on [0,\pi] such that both inequalities

\displaystyle\int\limits_0^\pi{{{\left( {f\left( x \right)-\sin x} \right)}^2}dx}\leq\frac{4}{9}


\displaystyle\int\limits_0^\pi{{{\left( {f\left( x \right)-\cos x} \right)}^2}dx}\leq\frac{1}{9}

hold? Justify your answer.

Question 10 [10 marks]. Let \alpha_k for k=1,2,...,n be n real numbers such that 0<\alpha_k<\pi for any k. Define


Show that

\displaystyle{\left( {\prod\limits_{k = 1}^n {\frac{{\sin {\alpha _k}}}{{{\alpha _k}}}} } \right)^{\frac{1}{n}}} \leq \frac{{\sin \alpha }}{\alpha }.
