### Lengths of curves - Arc length

If $\gamma\colon [a,b] \rightarrow \mathbb{R}^d$ is a differentiable curve we usually define $$\text{length}(\gamma) := \int_a^b \|\dot{\gamma}(t)\|_2\, \text{d}t,$$ where $\|\cdot\|_2$ is the ...

### Step functions dense in Integrable functions with respect to $L_2$

Let $I$ be a bounded interval. Prove that $\{\text{step functions }I \to C\}$ is dense in $\{\text{integrable functions }I \to C\}$ (Riemann Integrable) with respect to $\|.\|_2$ ($L_2$ norm)

### Does the limit of a convergent sequence depend on the norm?

Let $X$ be a vector space, and $\|\cdot\|_1$ and $\|\cdot\|_2$ two different (non-equivalent) Norms on $X.$ Let $(x_n)\subset X$ be a sequence and $x\in X$ such that $\lim_{n\to\infty}\|x_n-x\|_1=0.$ ...

### Norm of operator $g\mapsto \int fg$

Let $T_f:(C([a,b],\mathbb C), \lVert \cdot \rVert_1) \to \mathbb C$ with $g\mapsto \int_a^b f(x)g(x) dx$ for any given $f\in C([a,b],\mathbb C)$. I have to find the norm of $T_f$. I started with: ...

### equivalence of two definitions of norm equivalence: “$|\cdot|_1=|\cdot|_2^\alpha$” vs. “being a Cauchy sequence is the same for both norms”

Let $|\cdot|_1$ and $|\cdot|_2$ be two norms on a field $\mathbb F$. We call the two norms equivalent if every Cauchy-sequence with respect to $|\cdot|_1$ is also a Cauchy-sequence with respect to ...

### supremum norm and submultiplicativity

If $f$, $g \in C(S)$ where $S$ is a compact set in $\mathbb{R}^n$ then it is true that $$\lVert fg \rVert \leq \lVert f \rVert \lVert g \rVert$$ where the norm is the usual supremum norm. Why is this ...

### P-adic “Norm” and scalability criterion

I just came across the p-adic norm for the first time. I tried to show that it is actually a norm on $Q$ but I was asking myself, whether checking scalability is a bit self referential ? What I mean ...

### Norm with special conditions

Let $N$ be a norm on $\mathbb R^2$, such that $N ( \mathbb Z^2) \subset \mathbb N$, where $\mathbb Z^2 =\{ (a,b)\mid a\mbox{ and }b \mbox{ are integers}\}$. Help me to prove that for $u$, $v$ fixed ...
### Show that the norm of the multiplication operator $M_f$ on $L^2[0,1]$ is $\|f\|_\infty$
I'm having some (hopefully small) issues computing the norm of an operator. Firstly, the problem, For $f\in L^\infty[0,1]$, define $M_f: L^2[0,1]\to L^2[0,1]$ by $M_f(g)(x) = f(x)g(x)$. Show that ...
Given a vector space $V$ (for convenience, defined over $\mathbb{r}$), we call $d:V\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$ a norm for $V$ if $\forall \mathbf{u}, \mathbf{v} \in V$ and $\forall r \in \mathbb{R}$ we ...
