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 ,so0 · x .

Theorem 4 (Cauchy-Schwarz Inequality) If v,w R n ,then n X i =1 v i w i ! 2 n X i =1 v 2 i ! n X i =1 w 2 i ! | v · w | 2 ≤| v | 2 | w | 2 | v · w |≤| v || w | Read the proof in De La Fuente. The Cauchy-Schwarz Inequality is essential in proving the triangle inequality in E n . Note that v · w = | v || w | cos θ where θ is the angle between v and w : vw - θ % 0 Defnition 5 Two norms k·k and 0 on the same vector space V are said to be Lipschitz-equivalent if m,M > 0 such that
