### Cauchy-Schwarz for metrics with arbitrary signatures

When the norm of a vector is always greater than or equal to zero, the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality holds, but what if we look at a metric with an arbitrary signature? Then the inner product of a vector ...

### Multiplicative norm on $\mathbb{R}[X]$.

How to prove that : there is no function $N\colon \mathbb{R}[X] \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$, such that : $N$ is a norm of $\mathbb{R}$-vector space and $N(PQ)=N(P)N(Q)$ for all $P,Q \in \mathbb{R}[X]$. ...

### Inequality involving norm and inner product

I am stuck proving this trivial inequality: on a real inner product space, $(||x||+||y||)\frac{\langle x,y\rangle}{||x|| \cdot ||y||}\leq||x+y||$ I have tried to square both sides and use the Cauchy ...

### Representing with Hilbert Schmidt Norm

Am trying to see, if the following Trace function can be expressed using a Hilbert Schmidt Norm: $\operatorname{Tr}(X^TAX)$. Here, $X$ is a matrix whose entries take values that are finite and reals ...
### Does $(f,Tg)_{L^2}$ define an inner product space?
To my understanding inner product $$(f,g)_{L^2(\mathcal{D})} = \int_\mathcal{D} f(\boldsymbol{x})g(\boldsymbol{x})\,\mathrm{d}\boldsymbol{x},~~\mathcal{D} \subset \mathbb{R}^N$$ defines an inner ...
