4.4 Summary of Section 4

  • Thermal energy is a random thing, so any group of particles possessing it will have a distribution of kinetic energies.

  • The fraction of particles with energy greater than an amount E1 is proportional to exp(−E1/kT).

  • Thermally activated rates follow Arrhenius's law and are characterised by an activation energy.

  • Diffusion in solids and electrical conduction i

Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a unif
