    the next part of the norm question..

    http://i37.tinypic.com/2nhosqa.jpg

    i tried:
    <br />
x_i=\frac{1}{i^s} <br />
    i from 1 to infinty
    the whole sum is called u
    <br />
\left \| u \right \|_p=(\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}(\frac{1}{i^s})^p)^\frac{  1}{p}
    and i think we need to show that i converges

    but thats only a shot in the dark

    i dont have a clue about it

    Yes that's what you had to do.

    Now, recall that (a^b)^c=a^{bc} to get \left(\frac{1}{i^s}\right)^p=\frac{1}{i^{sp}}

    For what s (depending on p) does \sum_{i=1}^\infty \frac{1}{i^{sp}} converge ?

    It's just a Riemann sum...

    And taking something to the power 1/p doesn't change anything in the convergence or divergence.
