Help with Limit: $\lim_{n \to \infty} \frac{(2 n)! e^n (n)^n}{n! (2 n)^{2 n}}$

Could anyone give an example of a sequence of *differentiable* (real) functions that uniformly converge to a *differentiable* function, but the derivatives of which don’t converge to the derivative of the limit function?

This is under:

**A sequence of infinitely differentiable functions converging uniformly to zero, the sequence of whose derivatives diverges everywhere.**

$$f_{n}(x) = \frac{\sin nx}{\sqrt{n}}$$

This is on page 76, Chapter 7.

Consider the function $f_{n}: [0,2\pi] \to \mathbb{R}$ defined by $f_{n}(x)=n^{-1/2}\sin{nx}$ and let $f:[0,2\pi] \to \mathbb{R}$ be the zero function, that is $f(x)=0$.

Ok, here i work out the details. Since $\sin{x}$ oscillates between -1 and 1, we have $d_{\infty}(f_{n},f) \leq n^{-1/2}$, where $d_{\infty}$ is the uniform metric defined as $d_{\infty}(f,g)= \sup_{x \in [0, 2\pi]} |f(x)-g(x)|$. Since $\frac{1}{\sqrt{n}} \to 0$, using squeeze test we see that $f_{n} \to f$ uniformly.

Whereas $f_{n}'(x)= \sqrt{n}\cos{nx}$ so we have $|f_{n}'(0-f'(0)|=\sqrt{n}$, which says that $f_{n}’$ does not converge pointwise to $f’$.
