Weak convergence in Banach space.


(Norm) Let $X$ be a real linear space. The norm MATH is the mapping MATH with following properties:

1. MATH .

2. MATH ., $\forall x,y\in X$ .

3. MATH , MATH .

The norm introduces the "convergence" concept: for a sequence MATH , $x_{k}\in X$ we state MATH .


(Complete normed space) The linear MATH -normed space is "complete" if every MATH -Cauchy sequence has a limit in $X$ .


(Banach space) Banach space is a linear space equipped with a norm and complete with respect to the convergence concept introduced by the norm.


(Separable and dense sets) Let $A$ is a set in a Banach space $X$ . A subset $B\subset A$ is called "dense" in $A$ if MATH

The set $A$ is "separable" if it includes a countable dense subset.


(Dual space) Let $X$ be a Banach space. The "dual space" $X^{\ast}$ is the collection MATH equipped with the norm MATH where the MATH denotes the result of MATH acting on $x\in X$ .


$X^{\ast}$ is a Banach space.


The Banach space $X$ is called "reflexive" if $X^{\ast\ast}=X$ .

The sequence MATH "converges weakly in $X$ " to $x_{0}\in X$ if MATH


Let $X$ be a Banach space. Any weakly in $X$ convergent sequence is bounded with respect to MATH .


(Weak compactness of bounded set). Let $X$ be a reflexive Banach space. Let MATH be a sequence such that MATH for some constant $C$ . Then there exists a subsequence MATH and an element $x_{0}\in X$ such that MATH
