Questions tagged [locally-convex-spaces]

For questions about topological vector spaces whose topology is locally convex, that is, there is a basis of neighborhoods of the origin which consists of convex open sets. This tag has to be used with (topological-vector-spaces) and often with (functional-analysis).

Uniqueness of the derivative in locally convex topological vector space

I need a hint of proof of uniqueness of the derivative in locally convex topological vector space (it's asserted in Lang's "Introduction to differentiable manifolds"). Define derivative of a function ...

Rainwater theorem, convergence of nets, initial topology

I've stumbled upon a result called Rainwater's theorem a few times, it seems to be a very useful result in connection with weak convergence in Banach spaces. Rainwater's theorem. Let $X$ be a ...

Topology on the space of test functions

I try to read into the theory of distributions and there is one thing which bothers me. I read that a distribution is a linear, continuous functional from the space of test functions, which, depending ...

Conceptual question about Locally Convex Spaces

Suppose we have a locally convex space $(V,P)$, where $V$ is a topological vector space and $P$ is a family of seminorms defined on $V$ such that for each nonzero $x\in V$ there is a $p\in P$ such ...

Closedness in the proof of the Alaoglu Theorem

I'm reading a proof the Bourbaki-Alaoglu Theorem: Could someone explain how the closedness of $\Phi(V^\circ)$ (namely, $\Phi(V^\circ)$ contains all of its limit points) is done in the proof? I ...
