**Solve the following 6 problems. ** Each is worth 20 points
although they may have unequal difficulty, so the maximal possible
total grade is 120 points. Write your answers in the space below the
problems and on the front sides of the extra pages; use the back of the
pages for scratch paper. Only work appearing on the front side of
pages will be graded. Write your name and student number on each page.
If you need more paper please ask the presiding officers. This booklet has
12 pages.

**Duration. ** You have 3 hours to write this exam.

**Allowed Material: ** Any calculating device that is not
capable of displaying text.

**Problem 1. ** We say that a set of real numbers is *dense* if for any open interval , the intersection is
non-empty.

- Give an example of a dense set whose complement is also dense.
- Give an example of a non-dense set whose complement is also not dense.
- Prove that if is an increasing function ( for ) and if the range of is dense, then is continuous.

**Problem 2. ** Sketch the graph of the function
.
Make sure that your graph clearly indicates the following:

- The domain of definition of .
- The behaviour of near the points where it is not defined (if any) and as .
- The exact coordinates of the - and -intercepts and all minimas and maximas of .

**Problem 3. ** Compute the following derivative and the
following integrals:

- .
- .
- .
- .
- .

**Problem 4. ** In solving this problem you are not allowed to
use any properties of the exponential function .

- Two differentiable functions, and , defined over the entire real line , are known to satisfy , , and for all and also . Prove that and are the same. That is, prove that for all .
- A differentiable function defined over the entire real line is known to satisfy and for all and also . Prove that for all .

**Problem 5. ** In solving this problem you are not allowed to
use any properties of the trigonometric functions.

- A twice-differentiable function defined over the entire real line is known to satisfy for all and also . Write out the degree Taylor polynomial of at .
- Write a formula for the remainder term . (To keep the notation simple, you are allowed to assume that is even or even that is divisible by 4).
- Prove that is the zero function: for all .

**Problem 6. ** In solving this problem you are not allowed
to use the irrationality of , but you are allowed, indeed advised,
to borrow a few lines from the proof of the irrationality of .

Is there a non-zero polynomial defined on the interval and with values in the interval so that it and all of its derivatives are integers at both the point 0 and the point ? In either case, prove your answer in detail.
