I would like to find

  • a vector space $E$
  • a norm on $E$
  • a sequence $(u_n)$ which converges for this norm but such that its components doesn't converge to the component of the limit.

First $E$ should be infinite dimensional.

Second I am tying to look at $E=\mathbb{R}[X]$.

Take $u_n=(\underbrace{0,\ldots,0}_{\text{n zeros}},1/n,1/(n+1),\ldots,1/(n+p),\ldots)$.



We have $||u_n||_1=\sum_{k=1}^n1/k$

  • $\begingroup$ The question does not make much sense. Please specify the space of sequences you are considering and specify the norm you want to use. $\endgroup$ – Kavi Rama Murthy Feb 11 at 10:14
