Unformatted text preview: k x k = < x , x > 1 / 2 . 1 2 (a) Prove that for any x , y R n , < x , y > = 1 4 ( k x + y k 2 k xy k 2 ) . (b) Prove that k k p does not derive from an inner product, unless p = 2, that is to say, there does not exist an inner product in R n such that k x k p = < x , x > 1 / 2 x R n , unless p = 2. 8. Given a set A R n , and x R n , dene the distance from x to A by d ( x , A ) = inf k xy k y A . Prove that for a closed set A , x A if and only if d ( x , A ) = 0....
