( triangle inequality ) x,y,z X d ( x, y )+ d ( y, z ) d ( x, z ) y %& x z Defnition 2 Let V be a vector space over R .A norm on V is a function k·k : V R + satisfying 1. x V k x k≥ 0 2. x V k x k =0 x 3. ( triangle inequality ) x,y V k x + y k≤k x k + k y k x x y 0 x + y y &% x y 1

4. α R ,x V k αx k = | α |k x k A normed vector space is a vector space over R equipped with a norm. Theorem 3 Let ( V, k·k ) be a normed vector space. Let d : V × V R + be defned by d ( v, w )= k v w k Then ( V,d ) is a metric space. Proof: We must verify that d satisFes all the properties of a metric. 1. d ( k v w k≥ 0 d ( )=0 ⇔k v w k =0 v w ( v +( w )) + w = w v +(( w )+ w w v +0= w v = w 2. ±irst, note that for any x V ,0 · x =(0+0) · x · x +0 · x , so 0 · x .
