### Is there a concept of a “free Hilbert space on a set”?

I am looking for a "good" definition of a Hilbert space with a distinct orthonormal basis (in the Hilbert space sense) such that each basis element corresponds to an element of a given set $X$. Before ...

### orthonormal system in a Hilbert space

Let $\{e_n\}$ be an orthonormal basis for a Hilbert space $H$. Let $\{f_n\}$ be an orthonormal set in $H$ such that $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}{\|f_n-e_n\|}<1$. How do I show that $\{f_n\}$ is also an ...

### An approximate eigenvalue for $T \in B(X)$.

This is a problem from Conway’s Functional Analysis: Definition An approximate eigenvalue for $T \in B(X)$ is a scalar $\lambda$ such that there is a sequence of unit vectors $x_{n} \in X$ ...
Let $x\neq y$ when $x,y\in H$ and H is a Hilbert space which satisfy $\|x\|=\|y\|=r$. Show that $\|\frac{x+y}{2}\|<r$. Actually in my question r=1 but as far as i could understand there is a way ...
### Generalized Fourier series in $L^2$ that do not converge pointwise a.e.
For a Hilbert space $L^2$ we have the notion of an orthonormal basis $\{f_j\}$ being a sequence of orthonormal elements such that any element $f$ in $L^2$ can be approximated by partial sums in terms ...
