This is because there exists no such : for every you can easily find such that and : sketch the graph of a piecewise linear function that quickly decreases to 0 and then is constant equal to 0. (Or choose for large enough if you prefer to write formulas (then ))

ok. so they are not lipschitz equivalent then?

i don't get it. "a" can be arbitrarily small...

can't you do the following... let a -> 0+ and let A-> positive infinity. then it must be true that (a * uniform norm) <= norm1 <= (A * uniform norm) since 0 <= norm1 <= infinity, for all f.

what's wrong with that?

i understand there's a theory that all norms in Rn are Lipschitz equivalent to the Euclidian norm. then all should be Lipschitz equivalent to each other. seems applicable?
