Example of finite dimensional subspace construction.

n this section we construct an example subspace $X^{n}$ and prove the condition ( Energy approximation ).

We introduce a "partition" set ("mesh") MATH MATH and define $X^{n}$ to be a class of functions $v$ such that MATH for all sets of numbers MATH and MATH .

We define MATH to be a set of functions from $X^{n}$ such that MATH The set MATH is a basis of $X^{n}$ . Indeed, it is linearly independent and for any $v\in X^{n}$ we have MATH Therefore, for a function MATH we define an approximation MATH and proceed to estimate MATH We introduce the convenience notations MATH We estimate MATH We make a linear change of variables that maps MATH into $\left[ 0,1\right] $ : MATH thus MATH We continue MATH and introduce the convenience notation MATH thus MATH Note that MATH by construction of $\tilde{u}$ . Hence, there is a MATH such that MATH then MATH we apply the formula ( Holder inequality ) MATH We substitute the last result into the estimate MATH We change the order of integration MATH We sum the estimate MATH for $i=2,...,n$ and obtain MATH
