Re: extension of Minkowski's inequality



Thank you very much for your answer. Since I am still searching for a
prove of the validity of Minkowski's inequality with parameter \infty
< p < 0, I would appreciate very much if someone could tell me where
in the literature that can be found. Again, it would be great if the
result were formulated in the terminology of random variables.

Both Hardy, Littlewood, and Polya's "Inequalities" 
and Beckenbach and Bellman's "Inequalities" have the theorems
and the proofs. Just look in the table of contents.

Quote:  in the following V is a linear space and T is a
linear map from V to V
Question 1:Is there a norm on V such that T is a
bounded operator

Counterexample: let V have the basis e_1, e_2, e_3, ...
Define T by
T(e_j) = j e_j
Then for any norm N:
N(T(e_j)) = j N(e_j)
so T is not bounded.
Quote: 
question 2:is there a topological vector space
structure on V such
that T is continious linear map?

Yes, let N be a norm on V and set
s_k(v) = N(T^k(v))
Then the family s_k, k=0,1,2,...
of seminorms defines a topology on V and one has
s_k(T(v)) = s_{k+1}(v),
hence T is continuous wrt this topology.

Anton

Thank you for your simple method for solving solvable quintics by using two sextics. However, I have faced some problems when using your method for solving quintics. The following example shows these problems.

Which root shall be assigned for z1, z2, z3, and z4? Why?
As all z1, z2, z3 and z4 are complex numbers
each of z1^(1/5), z2^(1/5), z3^(1/5) and z4^(1/5) shall have 5 possible values. Which value for each z_i shall be taken? Why?
I think, it should be some assigned formulae to determine each z_i and each z_i^(1/5)

Best regards

Fajjal,
Wow, I didn't think anyone would reply to this post after a year.
Anyway, as Dummit pointed out in his paper, this is the quintic "casus
irreducibilis" analogous to the cubic version, when all roots are real.
The formula (just like Cardano's) remains true generically though
numerically, when the quintic has all roots real one has to properly
determine which 5th roots of the 4 complex roots of its resolvent go
together, as you pointed out.
Dummit had a similar complication with his method though he got around
that by using an "ordering condition" and letting the 5th roots satisfy
a certain equation, similar to what you did in another post.
To make the method as simple as possible I ignored this aspect though,
with some tweaking, it can address this as well.
P.S. You really should write some formal paper on your work on quintics
in some easytoread font and post it on a website. Others will
appreciate it. (For some reason, there's always someone wanting to know
about quintics.) ASCII is so discouraging to read.

Re: Presheaf as functor



Being a presheaf, it is a functor from the category of opens in X to the category of abelian groups.
The O(U)module structure on F(U) is an addon structure.
This is why people rather speak of O_Xmodules.

Re: IS quantum mechanics a limit cycle theory??



Due to material of my question in "Is quantum mechanics a limit cycle
theory" , it seems that I should ask, in priori, for an example of a
classical hamiltonian H with a finite (but non zero) number of closed
orbits (of course it is impossible in 2 dim.) If it is impossible to
present an example of hamiltonian with a finite number of closed
orbits, so the quantum interpretation for this "number" would be
meaningless!

Most of these solutions are exponential in the dimension.

How about trying to generalize the theory at:

of the points as a midpoint, and the inverse of a matrix with variances
giving the coefficients.
Must be not too bad. Just my 5 cents worth ...

Re: Presheaf as functor



Thanks for the replies. This sounds like a good way to do it, but it's
not exactly what I had in mind. I started thinking about this after
reading the definition of a presheaf in many textbooks, along the lines
of:
"On a topological space X, a presheaf F of sets (or abelian groups,
rings, etc) is an assignment for each open subset..." etc.
Clearly, it seems beneficial to prove statements about presheaves in
the general context of "contravariant functors from opens(X) to C" for
some C. Then looking at stalks, for example, works the same for all
categories in which direct limits exist. Or another example 
constructing the sheaf associated to a presheaf, which in the case of
sets, abelian groups etc., gives you a (pre)sheaf with values in the
same category you started with. This is the sort of thing I'm trying to
achieve with some degree of generality.
One could add slightly modify the definition of a presheaf, starting
with a fixed "base" functor R: Opens(X) > B, and a "projection"
functor P:C > B, and then saying a presheaf into C ("relative to R
and P") is a functor F:Opens(X)> C such that P·F=R. However, this
does make things a lot more cumbersome, and I have not seen this sort
of thing done anywhere.
Any thoughts on this?

Consider a particle moving in 3 dimensions in the potential
V(x,y,z) = (1  x^2  y^2)^2 z + z^3 + x^2 + y^2
Note that dV/dz > 0 except on the circle x^2 + y^2 = 1, z = 0, so
the only possible closed orbits are on that circle. On that circle
there are closed orbits in both directions.

IMHO this cannot have any physical relevance, because these orbits are
