### Prove that $A\geq I$ implies that $A$ is invertible.

Here's the question: Let $A$ be a positive operator on a (possibly infinite dimensional) Hilbert space. Let $I$ denote the identity operator. Suppose that $A \geq I$, which is to say that $A - I$...

### Compact diagonal operator

Suppose $A : H \to H$, where $H$ is a Hilbert space, is bounded. Also, $A$ is a diagonal operator with diagonal $\{a_n\}$. Show: If $A$ is compact, then $a_n \to 0$ as $n \to \infty$. Should I prove ...

### Second differential of the norm in an infinite dimensional Hilbert space

Let $f: E \to \mathbb{R}$ sending $x \mapsto \|x\|$ and make some simple hypothesis $E$ is a Hilbert Space Let's say that the norm $\|\cdot\|$ is derived from a scalar product [solved] So we can ...

### Does $A+A^\perp=\scr H$ in a Hilbert space imply $A$ is closed?

This is just the converse to the Hilbert projection theorem, which says that if $A$ is a closed subspace of a Hilbert space $\scr H$ then $A+A^\perp=\scr H$. If $A$ is a linear subspace of $\scr H$ ...

### Proving Toeplitz matrix defines bounded operator on $l^2$

I should first mention this: I have asked this question previously but I only got a partial answer that does not suit the actual assumptions but only the related ones, it reads as follows: Define ...

### Projection on closed subspace of $L^1$, $L^{\infty}$

For $p=1,\infty$ let $K$ be a closed subspace of $L^p(\mathbb{R},m)$. According to this question, it should be easy to find examples of $K$ and $f\in L^p(\mathbb{R},m)$ such that there exists a non-...

### If the scalar product are equal then the operators are equal.

I want to show the following: Let H be a $\mathbb C$ -hilbert space and $S,T\in L(X)$ If $\langle Sx,x \rangle = \langle Tx,x \rangle$ for all $x\in H$, then $S=T$ Any hints for me?

### Orthogonality of projections on a Hilbert space

Assume that $p$ and $q$ are (orthogonal) projections on Hilbert space $\mathcal{H}$. I want to prove: $pq=0$ iff $p+q\leq1$ I had the following in mind: Assume $pq=0$. Then $qp=0$, hence $p+q$ is a ...

### How can I show $U^{\bot \bot}\subseteq \overline{U}$?

Let $H$ be a Hilbert space and $U$ a subspace. Let $U^{\bot}$ denote its orthogonal complement. I had no trouble showing $\overline{U}\subseteq U^{\bot\bot}$. But now I'm stuck for $\supseteq$. ...

### Selfadjointness of the Dirac operator on the infinite-dimensional Hilbert space

I am a physicist, so my background in functional analysis is limited only to basics. However, I would like to prove that the free Dirac operator is selfadjoint (or Hermitian, or neither). The free ...

### What is the image of operator exponential?

Given a Banach space $V$ and a bounded linear operator $A:V\to V$, the operator $e^A$ is bounded and invertible. When $V$ is finite dimensional, every invertible operator is of the form $e^B$ (one can ...

### Can Hilbert spaces generalize non-Euclidean geometry by having the sum of the angles of a triangle not be equal to pi?

I am an amateur mathematician learning new things. Let A and B be vectors in a Hilbert space. The three vectors A, B and A-B form a triangle. The idea of the angle between two vectors can be ...

### No trace on $B(H)$ if $H$ is infinite dimensional

Let $H$ be an infinite dimensional Hilbert space and $B(H)$ the bounded linear operators on $H$. Then thre is no ultra weakly continous non-zero positve trace $tr:B(H)\rightarrow \mathbb{C}$. I ...

### In a Hilbert space, every bounded and closed set is weakly relatively compact.

My aim is to prove that in a Hilbert space, any sequence has a weakly convergent subsequence. To prove this, I'm trying to prove that: ...

### Orthonormal Basis for Hilbert Spaces

The following is the definition of orthonormal base that I am using: The notion of an orthonormal basis from linear algebra generalizes over to the case of Hilbert spaces. In a Hilbert space H, an ...
### name of matrix of inner products $\langle f_i, f_j\rangle$
Given a Hilbert space $H$ and a number of elements $\phi_i\in H$, does the matrix $M$ with $$M_{i,j} := \langle\phi_i, \phi_j\rangle$$ have any particular name?
