### Prove by Induction that Norms in a Finite Dimensional Space are Equivalent?

I would have thought that this is a good candidate for an inductive proof, but I have searched for one and failed. Is there such a proof, and if not why not ? Here's how far I got. It's easy to ...

### Reflexive Banach space: Boundedness of subset implies weak compactness. Closed or not?

Claim:In a reflexive Banach space, the weak compactness of a subset is equivalent to the boundedness of the subset. But there is no guarantee that the bounded subset would even have its sequences ...

### Finding a compact set containing the unit ball in a normed space

I would like to show that there is a compact set $K \supset \{ \Vert x \Vert \leq 1 \}$ in a general normed vector-space $X$, but I have no clue how to do it. Or is it maybe possible to have a finite ...

### What does $\mathbb{R}^\mathbb{N}$ actually mean?

We all know what $\mathbb{R}^n$ means. But I came across this statement about $\mathbb{R}^\mathbb{N}$ in a note that says $\mathbb{R}^\mathbb{N}$ is a vector space under pointwise operations has no ...

### Prove that X is a Banach space.

I have this problem to solve and I am not sure if I'm doing it right. Let $X$ denote a real vector space consisting of all continuous functions $u \colon[0, \alpha] \to \mathbb R$ such that their ...

### Discontinuous bilinear form separately continuous

Do you have an example of a real normed space $V$ and a bilinear form $B : V \times V \to \mathbb R$ that is discontinuous but such that $B$ is separately continuous for each variable? $V$ has to be ...

### Proof method for non-equivalence of norms?

Suppose I have 3 norms. I need to prove that any two of them are not equivalent. In my situation, proving that (1 and 3) and (2 and 3) are not equivalent is easy, but proving at (1 and 2) are not ...

### A peculiar characterization of open balls in a Banach space

Let $E$ be a Banach space and $U$ be a bounded open subset of $E$. Suppose that for any $x,y\in U$, there exists some open ball $B$ such that $\{x,y\}\subset B\subset U$. Prove that $U$ is ...

### Prove that the limit of a specific sum of sequences in a normed space is 0

Assume that m sequences $(u_n^k)_{n=1}^\infty$ ($k=1, \ldots, m$) in a normed space satisfy $$\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \left(\|\sum _{k=1}^m u_n^k\| - \sum_{k=1}^m \|u_n^k\|\right) = 0$$ Show that ...

### p - norms inequality

For $v \in \mathbb{R}^n$ denote by $||v||_p$ its p-norm. That is $(\sum_{i=1}^nv_i^p)^{\frac{1}{p}}$ where $v_i$ are the componenets of $v$. I'm looking for a way to bound the following expression: ...
Given an inner product $\langle,\rangle$, we can define a norm by $||x|| = \langle x,x \rangle^{\frac{1}{2}}$. My question is, are there other ways to derive a norm from an inner product space and if ...
Let $E$ be a normed space and let a vector $u\in E$ and a vector $v\in E$ with $||v||=1$ that satisy $||u+v||\geq 2-\varepsilon$ for a $\varepsilon >0$ be given. Show that for all \$\alpha ,\beta &...
