Let X be the set of all bounded sequences of complex numbers together with the metric d induced by the sup norm k x k = sup { x k  : k ∈ Z + } , i.e. d ( x,y ) = k x y k . Show that for each x ∈ X and ε > 0 the set B ε ( x ) is not totally bounded, although it is complete. Proof. Fix x ∈ X and ε > 0. First we show that B ε ( x ) is complete. If we can show that X is complete, then B ε ( x ) is a closed subspace of a complete space and therefore complete. Let x ( j ) be an arbitrary Cauchy sequence in X . Consider the following array of complex numbers: x (1) 1 x (1) 2 ... x (1) k ... x (2) 1 x (2) 2 ... x (2) k ... . . . . . . . . . x ( j ) 1 x ( j ) 2 ... x ( j ) k ... . . . . . . . . . Define f j : Z + → C by f j ( k ) = x ( j ) k . Since x ( j ) is Cauchy in X , it follows that f j is uniformly Cauchy and hence converges uniformly to a function f : Z + → C .....
