In 27.17 we shall see that no infinite dimensional Hausdorff topological vector space is locally compact. Regard X as a topological space with the indiscrete topology. Suppose Gj is a convex neighborhood of 0 in Xj. are both jointly continuous. (It is also complete, but that seems to be less important.). 3. Although we can certainly talk about Tfg when f and g are ordinary functions, in general it is not possible to multiply together two distributions U and V. In recent years, however, new theories of distributions have been developed that permit multiplication of generalized functions. If G is an open cover of X and X can also be covered by a locally finite open refinement of G then X can also be covered by a locally finite open precise refinement of G (with definitions as in 1.26). Suppose V is a nonempty open convex subset of Lp[0, 1]. The cofinite topology is strictly stronger than the indiscrete topology (unless card(X) < 2), but the cofinite topology also makes every subset of X compact. In the present book, however, a topological space will be assumed Hausdorff only if that assumption is stated explicitly. Here are some examples: 1. Then g is continuous from (Y,τ) to Z if and only if each of the compositions g ∘ yj : Xj → Z is continuous. Change of scalar field. Following is a brief sketch of how final locally convex spaces are used in that theory. In particular, for p = 0, we may take Γ(s) = s/(1 + s); thus Γ(s) ≤ 1 for all s in that case. Let S be a subset of a compact Hausdorff space. Theorem Let V be a vector space (without any topology specified yet), and let {(Xj, τj) : j ∈ J} be a family of locally convex topological vector spaces. interesting topology on R which is known as the euclidean topology. Every function to a space with the indiscrete topology is continuous. Let X be a topological space. Therefore, is closed and contains the closure of . Then there exists a topology τ on Y that is locally convex and has the property that τ is the strongest locally convex topology on Y that makes all the yj's continuous. Let {fα:α∈A} be a collection of continuous functions from X into [0, ∞), such that the sets fα−1((0,∞))form a locally finite cover of X. If X is a group, the (Yλ, Jλ)’s are TAG's, and the φλ’s are additive maps, then (X, S) is a TAG. Let τ be the sup of all the elements of Φ; by 26.20.c we know that τ is an LCS topology on Y. Let H be a balanced, convex neighborhood of 0 in Z. If we use the discrete topology, then every set is open, so every set is closed. Assume also that the τj's are compatible, in this sense: If j < k, then τj is the relative topology determined on Xj by the topological space (Xk, τk). The indiscrete topology on X is the weakest topology, so it has the most compact sets. Let {fα:α∈A}be a partition of unity that is precisely subordinated to a covering {Tα:α∈A} For each α let gα:X→ℝ be some given continuous function. In fact, Lp[0, 1] has no open convex subsets other than ∅ and the entire space, and the space Lp[0, 1]* = {continuous linear functionals on Lp[0, 1]} is just {0}. That is, if S J, then every J-compact set is also S-compact. Let Rbe a topological ring. Thus, any subgroup of a TAG is also a TAG; and a linear subspace of a TVS or LCS is another TVS or LCS. Definition 2.2 A space X is a T 1 space or Frechet space iff it satisfies the T 1 axiom, i.e. If, furthermore, f is a bijection, then f−1 is also continuous — that is, f is a homeomorphism. However, X is both hyperconnected and ultraconnected. Then sej ∈ V. By convexity, vn = 1n(se1 + se2 + ⋅⋅⋅ + sen) ∈ V for any positive integer n. However, show that ||vn||p > 1 for n sufficiently large. Every … Then εnxn → 0 in X, hence {εnxn : n ∈ ℕ} ⊆ Xj for some j, a contradiction. Then define gα(x)=fα(x)/s(x).The gα's form the desired partition of unity. Any upper semicontinuous function from a compact set into [−∞, +∞] assumes a maximum. The test functions are sufficiently well behaved so that they lie in the domain of many ill-behaved differential (or other) operators. Verify that (X, || ||) is a Banach space, when we use the real numbers for the scalar field. Thus it can be topologized as an LF space. Any y ∈ ℓ∞ acts as a continuous linear functional on ℓp, by the action 〈x,y〉=∑j=1∞xjyj; in fact, we have ∑j |xjyi| ≤ ||x||1 ||y||∞ ≤ ||x||p ||y||∞. Let (X;T) be a nite topological space. Definitions. We consider a vector space consisting of “nice” functions; a typical example is. Let (xn : n ∈ ℕ) be a sequence in X. Then Cc(Ω) is the union of the spaces, for compact sets K ⊆ Ω. • The discrete topological space with at least two points is a T 1 space. Any set with the discrete topology is a locally compact Hausdorff space. (X, τ) is not a Baire space. Assume D is a nonempty subset of X such that sup(D) does not exist in (X, ≤). Since S is bounded in X, we have 1/jsj → 0 in X, hence 1/jsj ∈ G for all j sufficiently large, a contradiction.
