### Books with exercises or problems on the space of functions of bounded variation

I am studying BV space (the space of functions of bounded variation) by using Evans & Gariepy's book. However, there are no exercises for BV space, and I have no idea where I can find some. ...

### Total variation for functions, Meaning of supremum as used here?

On Wikipedia article, here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_variation, on definition 1.1 there says, "where the supremum runs over the set of all partitions ..." AFAIK supremum is defined for a ...

### A question on a function of bounded semivariation

Let $(X,\tau)$ be a Hausdorff locally convex TVS and let $P(X)$ be a family of continuous seminorms on $X$ that generates the topology $\tau$. I got the following definition from one of the articles ...

### Is it true that $C_0^\ast[0,+\infty) = NBV_{loc}[0,+\infty)$

Any function from $BV_{\operatorname{loc}}[0,+\infty)$ defines a continuous linear functional on $C_0[0,+\infty)$. But is it true that any continuous linear functional on $C_0[0,+\infty)$ is given by ...

### Functions of bounded variation as the dual of $C([a,b])$

I am trying to understand this proposition about the dual of $C([a,b])$. I would like some help with the following: (1) What does the integral with respect to a function of bounded variation mean? ...

### Functions of bounded variation and $L^\infty$ functions

Here are my questions. Are $L^\infty$ functions of bounded variation? Is the composition of two BV functions still of bounded variation? Is $x\mapsto \frac 1{f(x)}$ of bounded variation when $f$ ...

### looking for a Poincare-type lemma for BV functions

Given a smooth bounded open subset $\Omega$ of $\mathbb{R}^n$, does there exist $A >0$ such that if $f\in BV(\Omega)$ with zero trace on $\partial \Omega$, and $\int_\Omega |Df| = 1$, then ...
Let $f\colon [a,b] \to \mathbb R$ be of bounded variation. Must it be the case that $|\int_a ^b f' (x) |\leq |TV(f)|$, where $TV(f)$ is the total variation of $f$ over $[a,b]$? If so, how can one ...
Suppose $f,g:[0,1]\rightarrow[0,1]$, $g>0$, and $f/g$ is of bounded variation. If $f_n, f \in C^1[0,1]$ and $f_n \rightarrow f$ in $C^1$. Does it follow that $\exists N$ such that $f_n/g$ is of ...
