Sequence space

  1. Dec 9, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    consider the sequence space l[tex]\infty[/tex](R) of bounded real sequences with the sup norm. If (X(n)) is sequence in l[tex]\infty[/tex](R) and X [tex]\in[/tex] l[tex]\infty[/tex](R), what does it mean to say that (X(n)) converges to X

    let (X(n)) be the sequence (1,1,---,1,0,0,---) with the first n coordinates 1 and the rest 0. And let x be the sequence (1) with every coordinate 1. Prove that the sequence (X(n)) does not converge to x

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    not sure where to start with this. any points to where i can look up info or where to start please?

    Look up the definition of the l^infinity norm. If {an} and {bn} are sequences. ||{an}-{bn}||_infinity is the sup of |an-bn| over all n.
