Tuesday, 10 Feb. Recalled the proof from last time that the bounded operators from a normed space into a Banach space form a Banach space – mainly to suggest that it is not so hard to remember how such a proof goes. Then proved that a normed space is Banach iff every ‘absolutely summable’ series is convergent. Absolute summability means that the sum of the norms is finite. Then did most of the proof that every normed space can be completed to a Banach space using this notion of absolutely summable sequences. The last part – and a guide to how to attempt the part of the proof that is the first question on the next homework. The proof of the result about completeness from the early part of the leture is in (1) Wilde: Proposition 1.6 (2) Chen: I didn’t find it. (3) Ward: Lemma 2.1 (easy way only) Here is a slightly abbreviated version of what I did in lecture today on the completion of a normed space. The very last part I asked you to finish as the first part of the second problem set, not due until February 24 due to the vagaries of the MIT calendar (but up later today). This problem may seem rather heavy sledding but if you can work through it all you will understand, before we get to it, the main sorts of arguments needed to prove most of the integrability results we will encounter later. Let V be a normed space with norm · V . A completion of V is a Banach space B with the following properties: (1) There is an injective (11)linear map I : V −→ B (2) The norms satisfy (3.1) I ( v ) B = v V ∀ v ∈ V. (3) The range I ( V ) ⊂ B is dense in B. Notice that if V is itself a Banach space then we can take B = V with I the identity map. So, the main result is: Theorem 1. Each normed space has a completion. ‘Proof’ (the last bit is left to you). First we introduce the rather large space ∞ (3.2) V = { u k } ∞ k =1 ; u k ∈ V and u k < ∞ k =1 the elements of which I called the absolutely summable series in V. Now, I showed in the earlier result that each element of V is a Cauchy sequence N – meaning the corresponding sequence of partial sums v N = u k is Cauchy if k =1 { u k } is absolutely summable. Now V is a linear space, where we add sequences, and multiply by constants, by doing the operations on each component: (3.3) t 1 { u k } + t 2 { u k } = { t 1 u k + t 2 u k } . This always gives an absolutely summable series by the triangle inequality: (3.4) t 1 u k + t 2 u k ≤  t 1  u k +  t 2  u k ....
