List of Banach Spaces - Classical Banach Spaces

According to Diestel (1984, Chapter VII), the classical Banach spaces are those defined by Dunford & Schwartz (1958), which is the source for the following table.

Here K denotes the field of real numbers or complex numbers and I is a closed and bounded interval . The number p is a real number with 1 < p < ∞, and q is its Hölder conjugate (also with 1 < q < ∞), so that the next equation holds:

and thus

The symbol Σ denotes a σ-algebra of sets, and Ξ denotes just an algebra of sets (for spaces only requiring finite additivity, such as the ba space). The symbol μ denotes a positive measure: that is, a real-valued positive set function defined on a σ-algebra which is countably additive.

Famous quotes containing the words spaces and/or classical:

    Every true man is a cause, a country, and an age; requires infinite spaces and numbers and time fully to accomplish his design;—and posterity seem to follow his steps as a train of clients.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Against classical philosophy: thinking about eternity or the immensity of the universe does not lessen my unhappiness.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
