(ii) k ax k = | a | · k x k , ∀ a ∈ R . (iii) k x- z k ≤ k x- y k + k y- z k , ∀ x,y,z ∈ X . Example 6.1.1. On R , absolute value is a norm. For x = ( a,b ) ∈ R 2 , k x k = √ a 2 + b 2 . For f ∈ R ( D ), k f k 1 := R D | f ( x ) | dx . Definition 6.1.9. A step function is one which is locally constant except for finitely many points. Thus, a step function is usually defined in terms of a partition; it is constant on each subinterval and can have a jump discontinuity at each point of the partition. Example 6.1.2. Define the step functions f P ( x ) = inf x i- 1 ≤ x ≤ x i f ( x ) and f P ( x ) = sup x i- 1 ≤ x ≤ x i f ( x ) . Then the previous theorem states that f is integrable iff there is a sequence of partitions { P n } with Z | f P n ( x )- f P n ( x ) | dx n →∞-----→ ....
