## Do extracted weak $H^{1,2}$-limits and $C^0$-limits coincide?

Let $I$ be a bounded interval and consider a sequence $(u_k)$ in $H^{1,2}(I)$ (usual Sobolev space). Suppose furthermore, that the sequence $(u_k)$ is bounded in $H^{1,2}(I)$. Then, by Rellich, we can extract a subsequence, still denoted by $u_k,$ s.t. $u_k$ converges to some $\bar{u}$ in $C^0(I)$. Furthermore, by weak compactness of bounded sets in $H^{1,2}(I)$ we can select a subsequence, s.t. $u_k$ converges to some $u$ weakly in $H^{1,2}(I)$. Thus, $u_k$ converges to $\bar{u}$ in $C^0$ and weakly to $u$ in $H^{1,2}$.

Do these limits coincide, i.e. is it true that $u=\bar{u}$?

Either type of convergence implies distributional convergence, among other things. So the limits must be the same.

 Could you elaborate on that? It just seems you are throwing another type of convergence into the box. – Orbicular May 19 2011 at 10:07 I think this would be a right place to say: "Do your homework!" Just recall the basic definitions, and you will see that $C^0$ and $(H^1)_\sigma$ are continuously injected in $\mathcal D'_\sigma$ . Furthermore, the last space is Hausdorff. – TaQ May 19 2011 at 17:48
