 Dec20 revised Space of bounded continuous functions is complete added 1 characters in body Dec20 asked Swapping a limit and a $\sup$ Dec20 comment Space of bounded continuous functions is complete @t.b. Sorry but I'm not sure I understand your first comment. Dec20 revised Space of bounded continuous functions is complete added 74 characters in body Dec20 comment Space of bounded continuous functions is complete @t.b.: Oh, right. In the question it says continuous. I'll do that. Thanks for your comments! Dec20 answered Space of bounded continuous functions is complete Dec20 comment Topology exercise from Manetti, Topologia Hey stef.

Dec19 revised Why is the maximal value attained at the boundary? added 30 characters in body; edited title Dec19 answered understand a statement from a Book. Dec19 comment Where is the “relation” here? @drozzy That was a typo. Here is the corrected version: No, the $\cdot$ does not denote function composition, it denotes the group operation. An example of a group where the group operation is denoted in a multiplicative way would be the reals without zero together with multiplication: $G = (\mathbb{R} \setminus \{ 0 \}, \cdot)$. Note that you have to exclude $0$ because it doesn't have an inverse and so $G$ would not be a group. For the monoid case it doesn't matter, $M = (\mathbb{R},\cdot)$ is a monoid. Dec19 comment Where is the “relation” here? @sdcvvc True! Thanks for pointing it out. Dec19 comment Where is the “relation” here? @drozzy Hope this helps, otherwise don't hesitate to ask for more explanation. Dec19 comment Where is the “relation” here? (cont'd) where $e$ denotes the identity element of the group. In $\mathbb{Z}$ $e$ would be $0$ and in $\mathbb{R}$ $e$ would be $1$. Dec19 comment Where is the “relation” here? An example of a group where you'd denote the operation using additive notation $+$ would be $G = (\mathbb{Z}, +)$. A group is like a monoid with one additional requirement: the requirement that every element must have an inverse i.e. for every $g \in G$ you can find a $-g$ (note that I'm using additive notation here) such that $g + (-g) = e = (-g) + g$. Dec19 comment Where is the “relation” here? Hi @drozzy: No, the $\cdot$ is not a function decomposition, it denotes the group operation. An example of a group where the group operation is denoted in a multiplicative way would be the reals together with multiplication: $G = (\mathbb{R}, \cdot)$.
