An example of bounded linear operator

Define $\ell^p = \{ x (= \{ x_n \}_{-\infty}^\infty) \;\; | \;\; \| x \|_{\ell^p} < \infty \}$ with $\| x \|_{\ell^p} = ( \sum_{n=-\infty}^\infty \|x_n \|^p )^{1/p}$ if $1 \leqslant p <\infty$, and $\| x \|_{\ell^p} = \sup _{n} | x_n |$ if $p = \infty$. Let $k = \{ k_n \}_{-\infty}^\infty \in \ell^1$.

Now define the operator $T$ , for $x \in \ell^p$ , $$(Tx)_n = \sum_{j=-\infty}^\infty k_{n-j} x_j \;\;(n \in \mathbb Z).$$ Then prove that $T\colon\ell^p \to\ell^p$ is a bounded, linear operator with $$\| Tx \|_{\ell^p} \leqslant \| k \|_{\ell^1} \| x \|_{\ell^p}.$$

Would you give me a proof for this problem?

No, I will not. But here is a hint: for a fixed $j$, consider the simple operator $x\mapsto (k_{j}x_{n-j})$ (sequence indexed by $n$) and find its norm. – user31373 Jul 17 '12 at 15:53
You need to do a little work here. @LeonidKovalev's hint makes it almost trivial. – copper.hat Jul 17 '12 at 16:04
@LeonidKovalev Thenk you Leonid Kovalev, but $\sum_n \sum_j |k_{n-j} |^p |x_j |^p = \sum_j \sum_n |k_j|^p |x_{n-j} |^p$ holds? I have a little doubt for this. – KiaSure Jul 17 '12 at 18:47
You got it, KiaSure. – Cameron Buie Jul 17 '12 at 19:36
@CameronBuie I'm not so sore. KiaSure: see the answer below. – user31373 Jul 17 '12 at 20:12

In the first comment I suggested the following strategy: write $T=\sum_j T_j$, where $T_j$ is a linear operator defined by $T_jx=\{k_jx_{n-j}\}$. You should check that this is indeed correct, i.e., summing $T_j$ over $j$ indeed gives $T$. Next, show that $\|T_j\|=|k_j|$ using the definition of the operator norm. Finally, use the triangle inequality $\|Tx\|_{\ell^p}\le \sum_j \|T_jx\|_{\ell_p}$.
