### Compactness of Multiplication Operator on $L^2$

Suppose we have an bounded linear operator A that operates from $L^2([a,b]) \mapsto L^2([a,b])$. Now suppose that $A(f)(t) = tf(t)$. Is A compact? Edit: I know $A = A^*$ but I'm not really sure ...

### Does orthogonal decomposition characterize direct sums in Hilbert space?

Let $H$ be a Hilbert space with inner product $(\cdot, \cdot)$. I know that if $M$ is a closed subspace of $H$, then $H$ can be written as the direct sum $M \oplus M^\perp$, where $M^\perp$ stands ...

### Properties of reflexive Banach spaces

I just want to see the importance of reflexive Banach spaces and what is special about them compared to other Banach spaces. What kind of properties hold in reflexive spaces that do not necessarily ...

### Are two Hilbert spaces with the same algebraic dimension (their Hamel bases have the same cardinality) isomorphic?

We know that two Hilbert spaces that have orthonormal bases of the same cardinality are isomorphic (as an inner product spaces). My question is: what can we say when we know that their Hamel bases ...

### Reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces and the isomorphism theorem

A reproducing kernel Hilbert space is a Hilbert space in which the evaluation functional $L_x : f \rightarrow f(x)$ is continuous. By continuity, the Riesz representation theorem says that this ...

### $P+Q-PQ$ is a projection if and only if $PQ=QP$.

Let $\mathcal H$ is a Hilbert space and $P,Q:\mathcal H \to \mathcal H$ are projections. I want to show that $P+Q-PQ$ is a projection if and only if $PQ=QP$. If $PQ=QP$ clearly $P+Q-PQ$ is a ...

### The strong operator limit of a sequence of unitary operators

If $\mathcal H$ is a Hilbert space and $U_n \in B(\mathcal H)$ is a strong-operator convergent sequence of unitary operators, say $U_n\rightarrow U$, is it true that $U$ is unitary? More explicitly, ...

### A complete eigenvector basis for the restricted operator

Let $X$ be a (not necessarily bounded) selfadjoint linear operator on a Hilbert space $H$ and let $M$ be a closed subspace such that $X(M) \subset M$. Suppose that $X$ admits an orthonormal basis ...

### $f$ an isometry from a hilbert space $H$ to itself such that $f(0)=0$ then $f$ linear.
This question was on an exam and I am not sure how to answer it. I mostly tried writing zero in different ways and tried lots of algebra to get something out. I also tried to use the fact that $H$ is ...
