CHAPTER ONE

Preliminaries

1.1 Linear maps

In this part we dene linear map and present some basic results concerning them.

Definition: Let X and linear spaces over a scalar eld K. A mapping T : X ?! Y is said to be a linear map if: T(x + y) = T(x) + T(y) (1.1) for arbitrary x; y 2 X and arbitrary scalars ; 2 K. Some authors use the term linear operator or linear transformation instead of linear map.Condition (1.1) is equivalent to the following two conditions:
(i)T(x + y) = T(x) + T(y)8x; y 2 X (ii)T(x) = T(x)8x 2 X and for each scalar, .

1.1.1 A basic result concerning linear maps

We remark rst that since linear functionals are special forms of linear maps, any result proved for linear map holds for linear functionals.

Proposition 1.1.1 Let X and Y be two linear spaces over a scalar eld, K, and let T : X ?! Y be a linear map.Then

1. T(0) = 0

2. The rang of T, R(T) = fy 2 Y : T(x) = y for some x 2 Xg is a linear subspace of Y

3. T is one to one if and only if T(x) = 0 implies that x = 0

4. If T is one to one , then T?1 exist on R(T) and T?1 : R(T) ?! X is also a linear map.

Proof. (1) Since T is linear, we have, T(x) = T(x) for each x 2 X and each scalar . Take = 0 and (1) follows immediately.

(2) We need to show that for y1; y2 2 R(T) and ; scalars, y1 + y2 2 R(T).

Now, y1; y2 2 R(T) implies that there exists x1; x2 2 X such that T(x1) = y1; T(x2) = y2. Moreover, x1 + x2 2 X(since X is a linear space). Further- more, by the linearity of T,we have

T(x1 + x2) = T(x1) + T(x2)

Hence y1 + y2 2 R(T), and so R(T) is a linear subspace of Y.

(3) Assume that T is one to one. Clearly T(x) = 0 ) T(x) = T(0) since T is linear (and so T(0) = 0). But T is one-to-one. So, x = 0. (()Assume that whenever T(u) = 0 then u must be 0. We want to prove that T is one-to-one. So, let T(x) = T(y). Then T(x) ? T(y) = 0 and by the linearity of T; T(x ? y) = 0.By hypothesis, x ? y = 0 which implies x = y. Hence T is one to-one.

(4) Assume that T is one-to-one, since the restriction of T on R(T) is always onto, then T is bijective from X into R(T).So T?1 exists on R(T). For the linearity, let y1; y2 2 R(T) and a scalar. Then there exists x1; x2 2 X such that y1 = T(x1); y2 = T(x2). so T?1(y1 + y2) = T?1(T(x1) + T(x2) which is equivalent to: T?1(y1 + y2) = T?1(T(x1 + x2)) by using the linearity of T; which is also equivalent to T?1(y1 + y2) = x1 + x2 = T?1(y1) + T?1(y2)
Therefore T?1 is linear

1.1.2 Bounded Linear Maps

Definition: Let X and Y be normed linear spaces over a scalar eld K, and let T : X ?! Y be a linear map. Then T is said to be bounded if there exists some constant K 0 such that for each x 2 X, kT(x)k Kkxk; the constant K is called a bound for T and in this case, T is called a bounded linear map. We denote by B(X; Y ), the family of all bounded linear maps from X into Y.

We now turn our attention to linear maps that are continuous. The notion of continuity can be state, for linear maps in several useful equivalent forms. We state these equivalent forms in the following theorem.

Theorem 1.1.1 Let X and Y be normed linear space and let T : X ?! Y be a linear map.Then the following are equivalent:

1. T is continuous;

2. T is continuous at the origin(in the sense that if fxng is a sequence of X such that xn ! 0 as n ! +1, then T(xn) ! 0 as n ! +1)

3. T is Lipschitz, ie , there exists a constant K 0 such that,for each x 2 X, kT(x)k Kkxk;

4. If D = fx 2 X : kxk 1g is the closed unit disc in X, then T(D) is bounded(in the sense that there exists a constant M 0 such that kT(x)k M for all x 2 D)

1.2 Banach spaces

Definition Let X be a real linear space, and k:kX a norm on X , and dX the corresponding metric dened by dX(x; y) = kx?ykX8x; y 2 X. The norm linear space (X; k:kX) is a real Banach space if the metric space (X; dX) is complete, i.e if any Cauchy sequence of elements of space (X; k:kX) converges in (X; k:kX:) That is every sequence satisfying the the following Cauchy criterion: 8 > 0; 9n0 2 N : p; q > n0 ) dX(xp; xq) < Definition Given any vector space V over a vector eld F (where F = R or C), the topological dual space(or simply) dual space of V is the linear space of all bounded linear functionals. We shall denote it by V . Remark 1.2.1 1. The dual space V has a canonical norm dened by kfk = sup x2V;kxk6=0 jf(x)j kxk; 8f 2 V : (1.2) 2. The dual of every real normed linear space, endowed with its canonical norm is a Banach space. In order to dene other useful topologies on dual spaces, we recall the following: Definition (Initial topology) Let X be an nonempty set, fYigi2I be a family of topological spaces(where I is an arbitrary index set)and i : X ?! Y ; i 2 I a family of maps. The smallest topology on X such that the map i; i 2 I are continuous is called the initial topology. Next, we dene the weak topology of a normed vector space X and the weak star topology of its dual space X which are special initial topologies. Definition (weak topology) Let X be a real normed linear space, and let us associate to each f 2 X the map f : X ?! R given by f (x) = f(x)8x 2 X The weak topology on X is the smallest topology on X for which all the f are continuous. We write !-topology for the weak topology. Definition (weak star topology) Let X be a real normed linear space and X its dual. Let us associate to each x 2 X the map x : X ?! R given by x(f) = f(x)8f 2 X. The weak star topology on X is the smallest topology on X for which all the x are continuous. We write !-topology for the weak star topology proposition 1.2.1 Let X be a real normed linear space and X its dual space. Then, there exists on X three standard topologies, the strong topology given by the canonical norm k:kx , the weak topology(!-topology) and the weak star topology ((!-topology) such that: (X; !) ,! (X; !) ,! (X; k:kX ): The following part of this section is devoted to reexive spaces. For any normed real linear space X; the space X of all bounded linear functionals on X is a Banach space and as a linear space, it has its own corresponding . Let X be a Banach space, there exists a natural mapping J : X ?! X of X into X dened, for each x 2 X by J(x) = x where x : X ?! R is given by x(f) = hf; xi, for each f 2 X. Thus
