Re: Longer Calculus Proof

Hey mathnerd15.

I was just going to ask about the absolute value property for the norm (you should have it unless you have restrictions on the space).

With regards to the properties most will rely on the properties of absolute values and also the fact that absolute value obeys triangle inequality (since it is a norm itself).

Re: Longer Calculus Proof

oh do you mean this definition of norm has some truth? since norm is really defined as (AdotA)^(1/2) then you do get an absolute value in the squares of the components? but norm isn't actually the sum of the absolute value of the components of a vector, you have to use triangulation/Pythagorean to calculate the length?

anyway if you have by Apostol's other definition in the problem with |ak| for argument's sake, ||A||=1 in V2 then |x|+|y|=1 and you have square with y intercepts at 1,-1, x intercepts -1,1. equations y=-x+1, y=x+1, y=-x-1, y=x-1 where segments are constrained by absolute value to length 1.

I have health problems, is it good to do a lot of problems from Apostol or better to move on to Hubbard and Rudin? I'm also reading Strang's Linear Algebra, Diff Eq Braun, Griffiths electrodynamics

Re: Longer Calculus Proof

with health problems it's kind of tough to cover a lot of material, but I think my health is improving
