# Questions tagged [lp-spaces]

For questions about $L^p$ spaces. That is, given a measure space $(X,\mathcal F,\mu)$, the vector space of equivalence classes of measurable functions such that $|f|^p$ is $\mu$-integrable. Questions can be about properties of functions in these spaces, or when the ambient space in a problem is an $L^p$ space.

### How do you show monotonicity of the $\ell^p$ norms?

I can't seem to work out the inequality $(\sum |x_n|^q)^{1/q} \leq (\sum |x_n|^p)^{1/p}$ for $p \leq q$ (which I'm assuming is the way to go about it).

### The Duals of $l^\infty$ and $L^{\infty}$

Can we identify the dual space of $l^\infty$ with another "natural space"? If the answer is yes, what can we say about $L^\infty$? By the dual space I mean the space of all continuous linear ...

### "Scaled $L^p$ norm" and geometric mean

The $L^p$ norm in $\mathbb{R}^n$ is \begin{align} \|x\|_p = \left(\sum_{j=1}^{n} |x_j|^p\right)^{1/p}. \end{align} Playing around with WolframAlpha, I noticed that, if we define the "scaled" $L^p$ ...

### Strong and weak convergence in $\ell^1$

Let $\ell^1$ be the space of absolutely summable real or complex sequences. Let us say that a sequence $(x_1, x_2, \ldots)$ of vectors in $\ell^1$ converges weakly to $x \in \ell^1$ if for every ...

### Show that $\lim _{r \to 0} \|T_rf−f\|_{L_p} =0.$

I am having a hard time with the following real analysis qual problem. Any help would be awesome. Suppose that $f \in L^p(\mathbb{R})$, where $1\leq p< + \infty$. Let $T_r(f)(t)=f(t−r)$. Show ...

### On the equality case of the Hölder and Minkowski inequalities

I'm following the book Measure and Integral of Richard L. Wheeden and Antoni Zygmund. This is problem 4 of chapter 8. Consider $E\subseteq \mathbb{R}^n$ a measurable set. In the following all the ...

### A Hamel basis for $\ell^p$?

I am looking for an explicit example for a Hamel basis for $\ell^{p}$?. As we know that for a Banach space a Hamel basis has either finite or uncountably infinite cardinality and for such a basis one ...

### Proof of Pitt's theorem

I'm reading the book Topics in Banach Space Theory by Albiac F. Kalton N. J. I got stuck at the proof of Pitt's theorem. In the second paragraphs authors tries to prove ad absurdum that for weakly ...
