Mathematics Department Stanford University Math 175 Homework 6 1. Suppose X is a normed space and T W X ! X is a linear operator such that T. { x 2 X W k x k ± 1 } / is contained in a compact subset of X , and let I W X ! X be the identity map on X . Prove that the null space N of I C T (i.e. { x 2 X W x C T.x/ D 0 } ) is finite dimensional. Hint: Prove that the closed unit ball in the null space is compact. 2. If X is a normed space and S is a finite dimensional subspace, prove that each point x 2 X has at least one closest point e x 2 S ; that is 9 e x 2 S such that k x ² e x k D min z 2 S k x ² z k . 3. If T , N are as in Q.1 and if e x is a closest point in N to x (as in Q.2 with S D N ), prove: (i) There is a fixed constant C such that k x ² e x k ± C k .I C T /.x/ k for each x 2 X . Hint: Otherwise this fails with C D k , k D 1 ; 2 ;::: , hence 9 a sequence x k with k .I C T /.x k / k < 1 k k x k ² e x k k . (ii) .I C T /.X/ is a closed linear subspace of X . Hint: Consider x k with x k C T.x k / ! y 2 X , and use (i). 4. Let T W H ! H be a linear operator on the Hilbert space H and suppose T. { x 2 H W k x k ± 1 } / is contained in a compact subset of H . If e 1 ;e 2 ;::: is an orthonormal sequence in H and T.e j / D ± j e j for each j D 1 ; 2 ;::: (where ±

Prove: (i) .BA/ D A B , (ii) if K D H D a complex Hilbert space, .A / D .A/. D { W 2 .A/ } / , (iii) if A is invertible, then A is invertible and .A / 1 D .A 1 / . Note: Here .A/ denotes the spectrum of A 2 L .H/ ; that is, the set of 2 C such that A I is not invertible. 6. If S W ` 2 ! ` 2 is the shift operator ( x D .x 1 ;x 2 ;:::/ 7! . ;x 1 ;x 2 ;:::/ ) (i) nd the adjoint S W ` 2 ! ` 2 , (ii) prove that the spectrum of S is the closed unit disk { z 2 C W j z j 1 } , and (iii) nd the spectrum of S . Hint for (ii): Start by showing that every 2 C with j j &lt; 1 is an eigenvalue of S . 7, 8, 9: Problems 7.17, 7.18, 7.20...
