Hi ,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is not a hw problem as I have long passed out of college. I was trying to understand why or where would the problem arise in the definition of the direct sum for the coproduct/direct sum for the set (1, 1, 1, .....) infinite number of times. I was trying to reason out as follows.

(1, 1, 1, ......)[itex]\rightarrow[/itex] Y

[itex]\uparrow[/itex]

f[itex]_{i}[/itex][itex]\rightarrow[/itex] Y

Pls note that the Y is the same as I cannot write the angular arrow.

Now if I say that f[itex]_{i}[/itex] acting on (e[itex]_{i}[/itex]) maps it to ( 0, 0, ...1 at the ith coordinate , 0, ....) then what is the place where I am making a mistake. The problem as I see is that either the map from the set (1, 1, 1, ...) to Y is either not unique or map from f[itex]_{i}[/itex][itex]\rightarrow[/itex] Y does not give the same value as the other path. I am really not sure which is the one and why.

Thx
