Folks,

a) Does the function space defined by define a norm on C[0,1]

b)If it does, prove all the axioms for a norm hold. If not, demonstrate by an example some axiom which fails

How do I start a)....I have no idea....?

THanks

let . then ||f|| = 0, but f ≠ 0.

What I have in my notes is that a norm on a vector space V is a function || ||:V to R satisfying x and y in V and for all scalars alpha. One of the axioms states that ||x||=0 IFF x vector = zero vector.

Hence the above function does not define a norm...not sure how to rigorously prove it though...?
