In this blog I will detail how I arrived at the final result. When we attempt to find a solution that matches the polling results … Read morePoll at the Forum (part 2): under the hood

## Confirming a New Years resolution

Over the last year I have been taking note of some of the stories in the various science/tech news feeds with of hope of eventually finding the time to expound on them in a format such as this. There is really no perfect time to commence such an activity and over the winter break I … Read moreConfirming a New Years resolution

## Computing Limits II: The Squeeze Theorem – Limits and Continuity

The Squeeze Theorem Let’s start with a statement of the squeeze theorem. Theorem 1.1  Suppose $$g(x) \le f(x) \le h(x)$$ and this is true for all $$x$$ in a neighbourhood of $$x = a$$ (except perhaps at $$x = a$$). Further, suppose $$\displaystyle \lim_{x \to a} g(x) = \displaystyle \lim_{x \to a} h(x) = L$$. Then … Read moreComputing Limits II: The Squeeze Theorem – Limits and Continuity
