Given $X$=$l^1$ and its dual space $X^*=l^\infty$. Now take $f=(1, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4,...) \in X^*$. Then clearly $\|f\|_\infty = 1$. I have found that $H=\ker f$ is a proximinal hyperplane in $X$.
Note: A ...

Let $S$ and $K$ be simplicial sets with $K$ Kan. Given simplicial sets $S$ and $K$, we let $SIMP(S,K)$ be the internal hom in the category of simplicial sets. Hence $SIMP(S,K)$ is Kan.
Suppose that ${...

Let $G$ and $H$ be torsion abelian groups.
Are the following are equivalent:
$\mathrm{Hom}(G, H) = 0$
$\mathrm{map}_*( K(G, m), K(H,n)) \sim *$ for all $n, m\geq 1$
?
Clearly (2) implies (1).
