By Terence Tao

There are lots of bits and items of folklore in arithmetic which are handed down from consultant to scholar, or from collaborator to collaborator, yet that are too fuzzy and nonrigorous to be mentioned within the formal literature. regularly, it was once a question of success and site as to who realized such "folklore mathematics". yet this present day, such bits and items could be communicated successfully and successfully through the semiformal medium of study running a blog. This e-book grew from this type of web publication. In 2007 Terry Tao all started a mathematical web publication to hide a number of themes, starting from his personal study and different contemporary advancements in arithmetic, to lecture notes for his sessions, to nontechnical puzzles and expository articles. the 1st years of the web publication have already been released by means of the yank Mathematical Society. The posts from the 3rd yr are being released in volumes. This moment quantity encompasses a wide collection of mathematical expositions and self-contained technical notes in lots of parts of arithmetic, akin to good judgment, mathematical physics, combinatorics, quantity idea, data, theoretical machine technological know-how, and crew thought. Tao has a rare skill to provide an explanation for deep effects to his viewers, which has made his web publication particularly well known. a few examples of this facility within the current publication are the story of 2 scholars and a multiple-choice examination getting used to provide an explanation for the $P = NP$ conjecture and a dialogue of "no self-defeating item" arguments that starts off from a schoolyard quantity online game and ends with leads to good judgment, online game thought, and theoretical physics. the 1st quantity involves a moment direction in genuine research, including similar fabric from the weblog, and it may be learn independently.

34 1. Real analysis (ii) (Homogeneity) cf c. Lp = |c| f Lp for all complex numbers (iii) ((Quasi-)triangle inequality) We have f +g Lp ≤ C( f Lp + g Lp ) for some constant C depending on p. If p ≥ 1, then we can take C = 1 (this fact is also known as Minkowski’s inequality). Proof. The claims (i), (ii) are obvious. 16) and is left as an exercise. 16). By the non-degeneracy property we may take f Lp and g Lp to be non-zero. Using the homogeneity, we can normalise f Lp + g Lp to equal 1, thus (by homogeneity again) we can write f = (1 − θ)F and g = θG for some 0 < θ < 1 and F, G ∈ Lp with F Lp = G Lp = 1.

E. Minkowski’s inequality). From the complex triangle inequality |f + g| ≤ |f | + |g|, it suffices to check the case when f , g are non-negative. 23) f +g p Lp = f |f + g|p−1 L1 + g|f + g|p−1 L1 p−1 while H¨ older’s inequality gives f |f + g|p−1 L1 ≤ f Lp f + g L p p−1 and g|f + g|p−1 L1 ≤ g Lp f + g L The claim then follows p . g. when f + g Lp = 0). 14. The proofs of H¨older’s inequality and Minkowski’s inequality both relied on convexity of various functions in C or [0, +∞). One way to emphasise this is to deduce both inequalities from Jensen’s inequality, which is an inequality which manifestly exploits this convexity.

Lp spaces 35 (iv) Now suppose instead that 1 < p < ∞ or 0 < p < 1. If f, g ∈ Lp are such that f +g Lp = f Lp + g Lp , show that one of the functions f , g is a non-negative scalar multiple of the other (up to equivalence, of course). What happens when p = 1? A vector space V with a function : V → [0, +∞) obeying the non-degeneracy, homogeneity, and (quasi-)triangle inequality is known as a (quasi-)normed vector space, and the function f → f is then known as a (quasi-)norm; thus Lp is a normed vector space for 1 ≤ p < ∞ but only a quasi-normed vector space for 0 < p < 1.
