The study of vector space with a topology which makes the maps which sums two vectors and which multiply a vector by a scalar continuous. It's a natural generalization of normed spaces.

### Show that continuous linear maps on the space of test functions take $C_K^\infty(\Omega)$ into some $C_{K_N}^\infty(\Omega)$

Let $\Omega$ be a nonempty open subset of $\mathbb{R}^n$, and let $\cup_{n=1}^\infty K_n = \Omega$ be an exhaustion of $\Omega$ by compact sets. Let $\mathcal{D}(\Omega) = \mathcal{D}$ be the standard ...

### How to prove this: $\overline{A\cap B}=\overline{A\cap \overline{B}}$?

Let $A$ be an open set of $E$ an normed linear space, and $B\subset E$, then I have to prove that $$\overline{A\cap B}=\overline{A\cap \overline{B}}$$ (I'm stuck in the two $\subset$'s) Any help ...

### familyof seminorms on normed spaces

Let $(X,\|\cdot\|)$ be a normed space. It is known that the norm $\|\cdot\|$ induces a topology, known as the norm topology $\tau$ on $X$. Then the pair $(X,\tau)$ is a locally convex topological ...

### Confused about topological vector space defined by seminorms

I'm reading a book in which it's claimed that for a strongly continuous representation, $U: G\rightarrow Aut(E)$ of a Lie group, G, on a locally convex, complete, Hausdorff topological vector space,E, ...

### Preserved properties through continuous linear maps

I just looked at the fact (at least according to Definition 2.8.1. in Distribution Theory by Friedlander et al.) that for $K_0\subseteq{\bf R}^{n(0)}$ compact, $\Omega_1\subseteq{\bf R}^{n(1)}$ open ...

### Do sequences fully specify the topology of $\mathcal{D}(\Omega)$ and $\mathcal{D}'(\Omega)$?

It is well known that $\mathcal{D}(\Omega)$ and $\mathcal{D}'(\Omega)$ are not metrizable, and that a topological vector space is metrizable if and only if it is first-countable (Rudin, Thm. 1.24). ...

### Direct limits of locally convex spaces and embeddings

I was thinking about whether this positive result would hold in the category of locally convex spaces also... Here is what I got so far: The direct limit of a locally convex system consists of the ...

### Logic behind a proof in Topological Vector Spaces

I found the following result at the beginning of some notes on topological vector spaces (TVS). This is a quite fundamental result, that apparently is considered the corresponding version of the ...

### Closure of intersection with vector subspace

I am confused with the footnote on page 198 of http://www.ma.huji.ac.il/~razk/iWeb/My_Site/Teaching_files/TVS.pdf Essentially: Let $X$ be a topological vector space and $Y$ a finite-dimensional ...
