Unformatted text preview: MATH 425b ASSIGNMENT 3 SOLUTIONS SPRING 2008 Prof. Alexander Chapter 7 (20) Let > 0. There exists a polynomial with || P- f || < (sup norm), say P ( x ) = N n =0 c n x n . f is bounded since it is continuous on the compact set [0 , 1], so there exists M such that | f ( x ) | M for all x . Therefore Z 1 f ( x ) P ( x ) dx = N X n =0 c n Z 1 f ( x ) x n dx = 0 and Z 1 f ( x ) 2 dx = Z 1 f ( x ) 2 dx- Z 1 f ( x ) P ( x ) dx = Z 1 f ( x )( f ( x )- P ( x )) dx Z 1 | f ( x ) || ( f ( x )- P ( x ) | dx Z 1 M dx = M . Since is arbitrary, this shows R 1 f ( x ) 2 dx = 0. By Exercise 2 of chapter 6, this means f ( x ) 2 = 0 for all x , so f ( x ) = 0 for all x . (21) The constant function f ( e i ) 1 for all is in A , and vanishes nowhere, so A vanishes at no point of K . The identity function f ( e i ) = e i is in A , and is one-to-one, so A separates points. To prove Rudins hint, for any function f ( e i ) = N n =0 c n e in in A we have Z 2 f ( e i ) e i d = N X n =0 c n Z 2 e i ( n +1) d = 0 . (1) For f A there exists a sequence { f n } A with f n f uniformly. Hence applying ( ?? ) 1 to f n , Z 2 f ( e i ) e i d = Z 2 ( f ( e i )- f n ( e i )) e i d Z 2 | f ( e i )- f n ( e i ) | | e i | d 2 || f- n || 0 as n , (2) so we must have R 2 f ( e i ) e i d = 0, for all f A . But for the particular choice....
