### dirk_mec1

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

3. The attempt at a solution
I'm stuck at exercise (e).

What I have to proof is that there is no M>0 such that:

$$||f'||_{\infty} \leq M \cdot ||f||_{\infty}$$

But I'm having a hard time showing that for there is little information on the sup of f. One way of doing this is to show that is 'M' is not constant (at least that's what I think) but because I only know that f is in C1 and f(0)=0 I don't see a way of proving this.

Can anyone give me a hint?

### morphism

To be more specific, try to find a sequence {f_n} of polynomials in E such that $\|f_n\|_\infty = 1$ for all n, while $\|f_n'\|_\infty \to \infty$.
