    strong topology

    Hi all,
    i have in my lecture notes this statement :
    " the strong topology is equivalent to the topology given by the norm ||w||=sup |(w|v)|
    which makes the E' (dual of E ) a Banach space , and the space E is the subspace of E''
    "

    why the strong topology is equal to this norm topology ?
    and why the space E is the subspace of E'' ?

    E is not "really" a subspace of E'' . It is the case after an identification. We define J : E\rightarrow E'' by the following way. Let \varphi_x defined by \varphi_x(f):= f(x).  \varphi_x\in (E')' and J(x) =\varphi_x makes J linear.

    J(E) is a subspace of E''. We identify E with a subspace of E''.

    thanks, but when i see my lecture notes again i saw same experssion that :
    " because A is a subspace of A'' ,the elements a belongs to the A can be viewed as functions on X(A) ( characters of A ) by setting :
    a(x):=X(a)
    "
    and still i am confusing about the double dual , how space is the subspace og that , and also i can't understand the meaninig of this phrase that i wrote .
