    Orthonormal Sequence in a Hilbert space

    Question:
    Let (ej) be an orthonormal sequence in Hilbert space H. Show that if x=\sum_{j=1}^\infty {\alpha}_{j}{e}_{j}
    y= \sum_{j=1}^\infty {\\beta }_{j}{e}_{j} then <x,y>=\sum_{j=1}^\infty {\alpha}_{j}{\bar{\beta}}_{j}, the series being absolutely convergent.

    solution:
    x=\sum_{j=1}^\infty {\alpha}_{j}{e}_{j} ==> ||x|| = \sum_{j = 1}^\infty {|{\alpha}_{j}|}^{2} ....(1)
    y= \sum_{j=1}^\infty {\\beta }_{j}{e}_{j}==>||y|| = \sum_{j = 1}^\infty {|{\beta }_{j}|}^{2} ....(2)

    I need to show that {S}_{ n} = \sum_{j=1}^\infty {\alpha}_{j}{\bar{\beta}}_{j} converges and the limit is <x,y>

    i tried to define
    {x}_{n} =\sum_{j=1}^\infty {\alpha}_{j}{e}_{j} ==> ||x|| = \sum_{j = 1}^\infty {|{\alpha}_{j}|}^{2}
    {y}_{n } = \sum_{j=1}^\infty {\\beta }_{j}{e}_{j}==>||y|| = \sum_{j = 1}^\infty {|{\beta }_{j}|}^{2}

    so that i can use (1) and 92) to show that <{x}_{n},{y}_{n }> \to <x,y> as n\to \infty

    i couldnt go from here.
    Please can someone help me

    Go to the LaTeX section help in MHF . Your message is almost impossible to read with all those awful symbols.

    This is just expressing the fact that the inner product is continous in the product space. To prove this assume x_n \rightarrow x and y_n \rightarrow y in norm then

    0\leq |\langle x_n,y_n \rangle - \langle x,y\rangle | \leq |\langle x_n-x,y_n\rangle |+|\langle x,y_n-y\rangle | \leq \|y_n \| \| x_n-x\| +  \| x\| \| y_n-y\| \rightarrow 0
