Theorem

Let $\struct {R, \norm {\,\cdot\,}}$ be a normed division ring.

Let $\sequence {x_n}$ be a sequence in $R$.

Let $\sequence {x_n}$ be convergent in the norm $\norm {\,\cdot\,}$ to the following limit:

$\displaystyle \lim_{n \mathop \to \infty} x_n = l$

Then $\sequence {x_n}$ is bounded.


Proof

Let $\sequence {x_n}$ be convergent to the limit $l$ in $\struct {R, \norm {\,\cdot\,} }$.

By modulus of limit in normed division ring, $\sequence {\norm {x_n} }$ is a convergent sequence in $\R$.

By Convergent Real Sequence is Bounded, $\sequence {\norm {x_n} }$ is bounded.

That is:

$\exists M \in \R_{> 0}: \forall n, \norm {x_n} = \size {\norm {x_n} } \le M$

By the definition of a bounded sequence in a normed division ring, $\sequence {x_n}$ is bounded.
