Lemma 6 H with the operations of Lemma 5 is an inner product space.
Proof: There are nine vector space axioms and three inner product axioms to be checked. The
proofs are essentially trivial and very similar. I’ll just verify the ﬁrst vector space axiom and ﬁrst
half of the ﬁrst inner product axiom. Let {xn }n∈IN , {yn }n∈IN ∈ H and α ∈ C.
{xn }n∈IN + {yn }n∈IN = {xn + yn }n∈IN = {yn + xn }n∈IN
= {yn }n∈IN + {xn }n∈IN
{xn }n∈IN , α {yn }n∈IN H = {xn }n∈IN , {αyn }n∈IN H = α {xn }n∈IN , {yn }n∈IN = lim xn , αyn

Proof: Let {X(n) ∈ H}n∈IN be a Cauchy sequence. We must prove that it has a limit, X ∈ H,
(n)
as n → ∞. Each X(n) is an equivalence class of Cauchy sequences in V . Say X(n) = x

We shall guess X = xn n∈IN by choosing each xn to be a x
as n increases. Here we go:
