8.2. Uniform Convergence

Theorem 8.2.7: Uniform Convergence and Integration

Let fn(x) be a sequence of continuous functions defined on the interval [a, b] and assume that fn converges uniformly to a function f. Then f is Riemann-integrable and
fn(x) dx = fn(x) dx = f(x) dx

Since fn are continuous and converge uniformly to f, the limit function must be continuous. In particular all functions must therefore be Riemann integrable. Also:

Since the right side goes to zero as n goes to infinity we are done.
