Mollifiers and Smooth Functions
We say a function f from R C is C (or simply smooth ) if all its
derivatives to every order exist at every point of R. For f : Rk C,
we say f is C if all partial derivatives to every order exist and are
Some notes on completions
The completion of a metric space (X, d) is a complete metric space
(Y, D) together with an injective isometry X Y so that the closure
X = Y . Recall a map h : X Y is an isometry if for all x, y X ,
d(x, y ) = D(h(x), h(y ). We wi

R , i.e., the set of all u Rk whose distance from the origin 0 is 1.
Show that every x Rk , except for x = 0, has a unique repres
