comment $C_c(X)$ dense in $L_1(X)$
But if "finite support" is used to mean "support of finite measure" question a) becomes trivial: a simple function already has support of finite measure in $\Omega$.

Thanks for pointing it out, that was a typo, I corrected it!

What does "I should something to you" mean?

comment $C_c(X)$ dense in $L_1(X)$
Thank you! About the measurable function with compact support: the step function $s_n$ has finite support and therefore compact support. This is what I meant.

Did you use the Tietze theorem anywhere?

Thanks! Where do you get the increasing sequence from? $\sigma$-finite doesn't give you that: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%CE%A3-finite_measure

comment Lie algebra of $GL_n(\mathbb{C})$
I know nothing. I started to read about Lie groups yesterday. I read that the exponential map maps elements in the Lie algebra to elements in the Lie group. I wonder if that is useful. Probably not because the exponential map is not surjective, I suppose....

comment Definition of tangent space
Thanks, actually anon's read it right. I'm just generally confused at the moment by the new subject of lie algebras and groups and I didn't see that it was so obvious.

comment Definition of tangent space
Thanks! And thanks for the book recommendation. As for the bonus: I'm still struggling with definitions so I'm not quite ready to answer that.
