### Decreasing sequence of closed convex sets in a Banach space

Let $(C_n)$ be a decreasing sequence of closed convex subsets in a Banach space $(E,\Vert \cdot \Vert)$. The question I have is about the content of $C=\bigcap_{n=0}^\infty C_n$.
If the $C_n$ are ...

### Sequential closure of a set: standard terminology, notation, and properties

Let $X$ be a topological vector space (or, perhaps, more generally uniform space). Let $A\subset X$ be a subset. Let $A^s$ denote the set of limits of all convergent sequences (I guess $A^s$ is called ...

### Final topology of surjective linear map on Banach space

Let $L:X\rightarrow Y$ be a surjective linear map from Banach space $(X,||\cdot||_X)$ to vector space $Y$ and denote with $\tau_L$ the final topology on $Y$ induced by $T$.
Is $\tau_L$ equivalent ...

### Banach Isomomorphic Cts Fucntion Algebras for two Non-Homeomorphic Top Spaces?

Can anyone provide me with an example of two non-homeomorphic locally-compact Hausdorff spaces $X$ and $Y$, such that $C(X)$ and $C(Y)$ are isomorphic as Banach algebras. Clearly, the ...

### Is there Ultracoproduct-like construction for topological spaces in general?

In
http://arxiv.org/pdf/math/9704205.pdf
they define the ultracoproduct of a sequence of compact Hausdorff spaces, $\sum_\mathcal{U}X_i$ along an ultrafilter $\mathcal{U}$ as the Wallman-Frink ...

### Agreement of two topologies on a linear space

I'm dealing with the formalism of an abstract Wiener space, and I'm not sure if two relevant topologies coincide.
Let $X$ be a topological vector space, and let $X^*$ be its dual space of continuous ...

### Algebras with countable chains only

Is there an example of an uncountable Boolean algebra $B$ in which every chain is countable and such that $\ell_\infty$ embeds into the Banach space $C(\mbox{Stone }B)$? The latter requirement is not ...

### How (and when) to factor a function defined on a product of metric spaces?

Suppose we have a set of regular functions defined on a product of metric spaces, for instance the Banach space of the smooth functions from $\mathbb R^n$ to $\mathbb C$. We know, thanks to the Taylor ...

### Determining continuous functions on Banach spaces

Let $X$ be a real Banach space.
For a continuous (not necessarily linear) function $g:X \to \mathbb{R}$ and a family $\mathcal{F} \subseteq X^*$, we´ll say that $\mathcal{F}$ determines $g$ if ...

### A criterion for the sum of two closed sets to be closed ?

Let $V$ and $I$ be two closed subsets of a Banach space $A$.
The set $V$ is a convex cone, and $I$ is a linear subspace of $A$. I also know that $V\cap I=\{0\}$.
I would like to know whether $I+V$ ...

### ED compact $K$ such that $C(K)$ is not a dual Banach space

Almost every mathematician working in von Neumann algebras says that there are certainly extremely disconnected compact spaces $K$ such that $C(K)$ is not a dual space (they are not hyperstonean). ...

### Extending Continuous Sublinear maps on dense subsets of a Banach space

Suppose X' and Y are Banach spaces and X is a linear subspace dense in X'. Let T be a continuous map of X to Y satisfying:
(1) ||T(x+y)|| is less than or equal to ||T(x)||+||T(y)||.
Please prove ...

### Cone in a metric space

Hi everybody,
We know the definition of a cone in a Real Banach Space.
I want to know if there is any definition for a cone in an abstract metric space.
Have you ever seen such definition anywhere?
