Balzano-Weirerstrass Theorem: Does any one know why there is \( 2^{m-2} \) at the \( \mathbb{R^n} \) while there is \( 2^{m-1} \) on \( \mathbb{R}^1 \)? http://i.stack.imgur.com/O14VI.jpg

    \( 2^{n-1} \) the the fifth line from proof while \( 2^{m-2} \) on the right bottom

    It looks like its because of the way they labeled the subintervals in their proof. In the one dimensional case, they didnt label the starting interval (the one of length 2a, [-a,a]), while in the n-dimensional case they did (J_1 is the n-dimensional rectangle with sides [-a,a]).

    the first interval is labelled as [a1,b1] which is [-a, 0] or the other, and it's length is 'a' if we continue this we, we get [an, bn] = a/2^(n-1) for the case of R^1

    right, but in the n dimensional case, the intervals in J_1 have length 2a.

    J_1 is defined as \( I_1^{(1)} \times I_2^{(1)} \times I_3^{(1)} \times ... I_n^{(1)}\) where each \( I_k^{(1)}: -a \le x \le 0 \)
