Functional analysis is the study of infinite-dimensional vector spaces, often with additional structures (inner product, norm, topology), with typical examples given by function spaces. The subject also includes the study of linear and non-linear operators on these spaces, as well as measure, ...

### Existence theorem on weak solutions of ordinary differential equations

Consider an ordinary vector-valued differential equation of the form \begin{align*} \dot y(t) &= f(t,y(t)), \\ y(0) &= y_0 \in \mathbb{R}^n. \end{align*} It is well known that if $f$ is ...

### Two possible definitions of “vector-valued distribution”

Let $X$ be a reflexive Banach space. Define $$\tag{1} \mathcal{D}^\star(0, T; X)=\left\{ u\colon \mathcal{D}(0, T)\to X\ \text{linear and continuous}\right\}$$ where the topology on the space of ...

### If a Radon measure is a tempered distribution, does it integrate all Schwartz functions?

The question might at first sight sound like the answer is trivially "yes", so let me clarify the question a bit. Consider given a Radon measure $\mu$ on $\mathbb{R}^n$. Let $\mathcal{D}(\mathbb{R}^n)$...

### Finding a proper solution of a given functional

It's my first post here, but I worked very hard to find solution and I failed. Hereinafter, I skip physical background and directly proceed to my mathematical problem. No matter how, you know the ...

### Decomposing $\mathcal{B}(H)$

Let $H$ be an infinite-dimensional Hilbert space and let $\mathcal{B}(H)$ be the (C*/W*-)algebra of bounded operators on it. Actually, you may forget about the involution in $\mathcal{B}(H)$ because I ...

### Fixed point: linear operators

I ask my question in two parts: though the topic is similar, I would like to distinguish linear and general cases since methods may be too different while my questions are broad. Consider a space $X$ ...

### Spectacular failure of Lebesgue differentiation for rectangles

Let $\mathcal{R}$ be the set of rectangles in the plane and, given $f \in L^1$ let $$f^*(x) = \sup_{x \in R \in \mathcal{R}} \frac{1}{ \lvert R \rvert} \int_R \lvert \, f \,\rvert$$ as defined in ...
