# Is this normed vector space complete?

The normed vector space in question is $$(C^{1}[0,1],\Vert \cdot \Vert _c )$$ where $$\| f \| _c := \lvert f(1) \rvert + \lVert f' \rVert _{1}$$

For the first part of the question I had to work out whether or not $$\| \cdot \| _c$$ was a norm, which I believe it is. The second part was to work out which norms made the above vector space a complete normed space (there were norms indexed with $$a$$ and $$b$$ but this is the one I really need help with) i.e is $$(C^{1}[0,1],\| \cdot \| _c )$$ complete?

I feel as though it isn't complete, my intuition is that simply evaluating $$f(x)$$ at $$1$$ isn't enough 'information' or perhaps it's better to say that it's not restrictive enough? However, I'm really bad at giving counterexamples in these types of questions, I was thinking of constructing a Cauchy sequence $$(f_n)$$ that converges to a continuous function with a discontinuous derivative and set $$f_n(1)=0$$ which would simplify things.

Any ideas of a counterexample? or maybe an explanation as to why it maybe complete? Thank you.

HINT: Do you know any example of a Cauchy sequence in $$(C[0,1],\|\cdot\|_1)$$ that does not converge? By means of integration you might be able to turn this into an example of a Cauchy sequence in $$(C^1[0,1],\|\cdot\|_c)$$ that does not converge.
• Thanks for the response, I do actually have such an example in my lecture notes. A sequence of functions where identically $0$ for $x \in [0,1/2]$ then a straight line for $x \in [1/2,1/2 +1/n]$ then identically $1$ for the rest of domain. This converge to a step function, so are you saying find a function who's derivative behaves like this? – Displayname Mar 2 '19 at 12:07
• Of course these functions You describe are not in $C^1([0,1])$. Do You know mollifiers?@Displayname – Peter Melech Mar 2 '19 at 12:10
• Not sure if this works, if You take the functions You describe You'll get something like $$f(x)=\begin{cases}C_1,0\leq x\leq \frac{1}{2}\\ \frac{n}{2}x^2-\frac{n}{2}x+C_2,\frac{1}{2}\leq x\leq \frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{n}\\x+C_3,\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{n}\leq x\leq 1\end{cases}$$ and You are right, these are in $C^1$ – Peter Melech Mar 2 '19 at 12:37
