1. ## L^2 integral problem.

Suppose that $fg \in L^2 ([a,b])$ for all $f \in L^2([a,b])$. How to show that $g$ is also in $L^2([a,b])$

2. ## Re: L^2 integral problem.

Take f(x) = 1.

this doesn't show for every f.

I thought you assume that $fg \in L^2 ([a,b])$ for all $f \in L^2([a,b])$. We have $1 \in L^2([a,b])$.

Sorry I not really get what you mean. Would you explain in details?

You are given that $fg \in L^2 ([a,b])$ for all $f \in L^2 ([a,b])$. This is known; you don't have to prove this. Therefore, you can replace $f$ with any function, as long as it is in $L^2 ([a,b])$, and still get a true statement. I suggest replacing $f$ with a function that equals 1 everywhere.
