# Questions tagged [topological-vector-spaces]

A topological vector space is a vector space $V$ over a topological field $\mathbb{K}$ (typically $\mathbb{K}=\mathbb{R}$ or $\mathbb{K}=\mathbb{C}$), together with a topology on $V$ such that vector addition and scalar multiplication are both continuous. Hilbert spaces and Banach spaces are examples of topological vector spaces.

### On Köthe sequence spaces

I asked this a week ago at math.stackexchange, but without success. As far as I understand, there are several meanings of the notion of the Köthe sequence space, in particular, Hans Jarchow in his "...

### Integration with values in a topological vector space

Is there a general theory of integration of functions with values in a topological vector space (not necessarily locally convex)? Browsing through mathoverflow posts, I came across a discussion ...

### subspace topology and strong topology

Suppose $X$ is a locally convex space and $Y$ is a subspace of the strong dual of $X$, is the induced topology on Y equivalent to the strong topology $b(Y,Y')$ on $Y$? If this is not correct, then on ...

### Open mapping theorem for complete non-metrizable spaces?

The classical open mapping theorem in functional analysis certainly holds in the Banach space setting, and this is where I first encountered it. Slightly more advanced textbooks (e.g. Rudin's ...

### Every linear topological space embeds into the Tychonoff product of linear metric spaces

I need a reference to the following (known?) Fact. Every topological vector space $X$ over the field of real numbers is topologically isomorphic to a linear subspace of the Tychonoff product of ...

### Reference for “topological affine spaces”

I am wondering if there is a topological version of affine spaces as a topological space along with a free transitive (continuous) action of a topological vector space on it? Here is a notion so-...

### Complete dual of bornological space

A bornologigal topological vector space is such that any bounded linear function on it is continuous. It is a standard result [Jarchow, Locally convex spaces, 1981] that if the dual $E'$ of a Mackey ...

### Reference request for Grothendieck's work on “Integration with values in a topological group”

Disclaimer. This question was already asked in Mathematics Stack Exchange (see the link here). I wanted the question to be migrated here but I was told by a moderator that a question that old is ...

### A characterization of nuclear functionals in terms of continuity with respect to some special topologies on $B(X)$?

I think, nuclear functionals on the space of operators $B(X)$ (on a Banach space $X$) must have a characterization in terms of some special continuity. I would be grateful if somebody could help me ...

### Continuous and bornological Hochschild homology

As far as I understand, given a complex algebra $A$ with a locally convex topology $\mathcal{T}_A$ (e.g. $A=C^{\infty}(M, \mathbb C)$ for some manifold M), the topology induces a complete convex ...

### Is a set of nuclear functionals equicontinuous in compact-open topology if it is equicontinuous on each compact set?

Let $H$ be a Hilbert space and $B(H)$ be its space of all (bounded) operators. A nuclear functional on $B(H)$ is a linear functional $f:B(H)\to{\mathbb C}$ that can be represented in the form  f(A)=\...

### Two notions of boundedness in metrizable topological vector space [closed]

In a metrizable topological vector space X with the metric d, a subset A is said to be bounded if it can be absorbed by any neighbourhood of 0 and a subset A is said to be d-bounded if its diameter ...

### Is each cometrizable space a subspace of a cometrizable topological group?

Following Gruenhage we call a topological space $X$ cometrizable if $X$ admits a weaker metrizable topology such that every point $x\in X$ has a (not necessarily open) neighborhood base consisting of ...

How much of spectral theory can be developed just working with vector spaces (finite or infinite dimensional) without referring to a choice of topology ? Something along these lines, for example: ...

### Gelfand-Pettis integral: what does it mean for a topological vector space to “admit a dual space?”

I am trying to understand more about the Gelfand-Pettis integral. From wikipedia: What does it mean that $V$ "admits a dual space?" When $V$ is a Banach space, $V^{\ast}$ is taken to be the space ...

### Is the compact-open topology on the dual of a separable Frechet space sequential?

Let $X$ be a separable Frechet space (= Polish locally convex linear metric space) and $X'_c$ be the space of linear continuous functionals on $X$, endowed with the compact-open topology (= the ...

### The completeness of spaces of continuous functions with the compact-open topology

For a Tychonoff space $X$ let $C_k(X)$ denote the space of continuous real-valued functions on $X$, endowed with the compact-open topology. Problem. Is the space $C_k(X)$ Polish if it is Polishable ...
