The closed graph theorem for Banach spaces isn't true. True?

I'm reading through some functional analysis lecture notes and there the closed graph theorem was stated in the following form: Let $X$ be a Baire locally convex space and $Y$ a Frechet space. If ...

Counterexamples for Hölder's inequality when $p$ and $q$ are not conjugate.

Hölder's inequality shows that, when $$ \frac{1}{p} + \frac{1}{q} = 1,$$ and $f\in L^p$ and $g\in L^q$, then $$\Vert f\,g\Vert_1 \le \Vert f \Vert_p \Vert g \Vert_q.$$ Is there an example of this ...

Completeness is not preserved under homeomorphism

I am trying to give a counterexample which will make it clear that homeomorphism does not preserve completeness. I have an easy one in mind ($(0,1)$ and $\mathbb{R}$) but I have just thought that ...

If $V \times W$ with the product norm is complete, must $V$ and $W$ be complete?

Let $V,W$ be two normed vector spaces (over a field $K$). Then their product $V \times W$ with the norm $\|(x,y)\| = \|x\|_V + \|y\|_W$ is a normed space. Using this norm it's easy to show that if ...

Convex hull of the extreme points of the unit ball in $C(K)$ where $K$ is the Cantor set.

Let $K$ denote the usual $1/3$ Cantor set and let $B=B_{C(K)}$ (here $B_{C(K)}$ = {$v \in C(K) : \|v\| \leq 1 $} denotes the closed unit ball of $C(K))$. Then how to prove that $B$ coincides with the ...
