Minimizing Vector
Dear Colleagues:

Show that the subset $M=\{y=(\eta _{j})|\sum \eta _{j}=1 \}$ of complex space $C^{n}$ is complete and convex. Find the vector of minimum norm in $M$.

Regards,

Raed.

It's complete because it's clearly closed and closed subspaces of complete spaces are complete...for convexity I think you may be thinking too hard.
