Rudin, Chapter 2, Problem #5.Show that the Cantor set has measure 0 but is uncountable.
LetEkdenote thekth step in the construction ofE. SoE0= [0,1],E1= T [0,1/3][2/3,1], and so on; andE=Ei. Addup size of intervals removed to i formEito get 2 23i1i (1/3) + 2(1/2 (13) +/3) +∙ ∙ ∙(1+ 2/3). SoEis the complement of a set of size 2 23 (1/3) + 2(1/3) +2 (1/3) +∙ ∙ ∙= 1, and hence has measure zero. Finally, the elements ofEare in 11 correspondence with infinite base three decimals, soEis uncountable.˜
Rudin, Chapter 4, Problem #7.Construct a totally disconnected compact set KRsuch thatµ(K)>0.
Repeat the constuction of the Cantor set from the interval [0,1] recalled in the previous problem, but defineKiinductively by removing (open) middle segments i fromKi=1of lengthε(forε <a simple argument (along the lines in the1). Then previous argument) shows that the resulting intersectionKhas measure 13ε . 12ε Kis totally disconnected and compact for the same reasons that the Cantor set is. ˜
Rudin, Chapter 4, Problem #6.Fix 0<< εan open dense subset of1. Find [0,1] of measureε.
Consider the complement of the set constructed in Problem #7.It is dense and can be made to have measureε.˜
Rudin, Chapter 4, Problem #8.Construct a Borel setERsuch that 0< µ(IE)< µ(I) for every nonempty intervalI. Suppose we can findE[0,1] satisfying the requirement for eachI[0,1]. Then repeatingEalong the real line gives a solution to the problem. To find suchE[0,1], start with the generalized Cantor set, sayE1, of measure εnumber of “holes” inThen in each of the (countable!)constructed in Problem #7. E1with appropriately scaled generalized Cantor sets so that the result has meaure 1
2 ε+ε/the result2. CallE2fill the countable number of holes in. NextE2with scaled generalized Cantor sets so that the result now has measureε+ε/2 +ε/4. Continue. The union of allEiwill have the required properties and will have measure 2ε. As we noted, if we repeatEalong the real line, it has the required properties of the problem.(By shrinking its measure as we repeat, we can insure the result has finitetotal measure!) ˜
Rudin, Chapter 4, Problem #9.Construct a sequence of continuous functions fnon [0,1] such that Z 1 limfn(x)dx= 0, n→∞ 0 but so thatfn(x) converges for nox[0,1].
Recall a tent function centered atcof heightaand widthbis the piecewise linear function ( 0 ifx /[cb/2, c+b/2] f(x) = a(1− |2(xc)/b|) ifx[b/2, b/2]. Letgn+ 1be the tent function centered at 1/2 +∙ ∙ ∙+ 1/n(taken modulo 1) with height 1 and width 1/ n, and letfn=χ[0,1]gn. Thissequence is a “pulse” of overlapping tent functions which wrap around the unit interval.The width of each tent keeps shrinking (so the integral tends to zero), but if we fixx[0,1],xtakes values 0 and arbitrarily close to 1 infinitely often. ˜
Rudin, Chapter 3, Problem #3.Ifφis a continuous function on (a, b) such that   x+y φ(x)φ(y) φ+, 2 22 thenφis convex. The best proof (like that of Theorem 3.2) is by drawing a picture.I omit the details. As Rudin pointsout, you need to be a little careful since the result fails if φis not assumed to be continuous (for example, by takinga= 0, b= 2,φ(x) = 0 forx <1, andφ(x) = 3x+ 1forx1).˜
Rudin, Chapter 3, Problem #7.Find necessary and sufficient conditions for p q the inclusion ofLLto hold. p q The solution I give is based on “Another note on the inclusion ofL(µ)L(µ)” by A. Villani,The American Mathematical Monthly, Vol. 92 (1985), No. 7, 485–487. Proposition 1Letµbe a positive measure inM. LetM0denote the sets of nonzero measure.The the following are equivalent p q (a)L(µ)L(µ) for somep < qin (0,]; (b) infE∈M0µ(E)>0; and
p q (c)L(µ)L(µ) for allp < qin (0,]; p qpt qt Proof.If(a) implies (b).L(µ)L(µ), then clearlyLLfor allt >0. So p q assume we can assumep1, soLandLare normed.The key isthe hypothesized p q settheoretic inclusionLLis a continuous linear map.The reason is that, as q p we saw in the proof of the completeness ofL, any convergent sequence inL q converges (inL) to the pointwise limit of some subsequence (almost everywhere). p qq So the image ofLinsideLis closed in theLnorm. Sothe Closed Graph Theorem then implies the inclusion is continuous.Hence there is a constantksuch that for p everyfL, ||f||pk||f||q. Takef=χEfor a measurable setEto get 1/p1/q µ(E)(E), and so 1 µ(E)k . 1/q1/p So the infinium in (b) must be strictly positive. p (b) implies (c).GivenfL, letEndenote the set ofxsuch that|f(x)< n. p SincefL,µ(En) must tend to zero asnBy (b), this meansbecomes large. q there is someNsuch thatµ(En) = 0.Sofis actually inL. Sofis inLtoo. (c) trivially implies (a).˜ There is also a dual assertion (whose proof I leave to you): Proposition 2Letµbe a positive measure inM. LetMdenote the sets of finite measure. The the following are equivalent p q (a)L(µ)L(µ) for somep > qin (0,); (b) supµ(E)<; and E∈Mp q (c)L(µ)L(µ) for allp > qin (0,); Note the ifµ(XIf) is finite, Proposition 2 applies.µis discrete, Proposition 1 applies. Neither propositionapplies to Lebesque measure onR.˜
Rudin, Chapter 3, Problem #11.Supposeµ(Ω) = 1, and supposefandgare positive measurable functions on Ω such thatf g1. Then Z Z f dµf dµ1 Ω Ω Sincefandgare positive, we can consider their square rootsfandg. By the Holder inequality, we have ||f||2||g||2≥ ||f g||1. The lefthand side is of course Z Z f dµgdµ. Ω Ω By hypothesisf g1, and so the righthand side is at least 1µ(Ω) = 1. Squaring both sides gives the desired result.
1Circle Problem. LetS={e|0θ <2π}. ForeachnZ, define a map 1× χn:SCvia iθ inθ χn(e) =e . (0) Provethatχnis a continuous homorphism from the multiplicative group 1× Sto the multiplicative groupC. 1 (1) Supposeχis any continuous homorphism from the multiplicative groupS × to the multiplicative groupCthat there exists an. Provensuch that χ=χn. 1 (2) Supposeχis a continuous homomorphism fromSto GL(N,C) so thatχ admits no invariant subspaces in the following sense:ifVis a subspace of N Csuch that 1 [χ(x)](v)Vfor allxSandvV , N thenV={0}orV=C. ProvethatN= 1. 1 Hence the mapsχnare precisely the set of continuous homomorphism fromSto GL(N,C) so thatχadmits no invariant subspaces.
1 Solution.(0) is trivial.For (1), letHmdenote the subgroup ofSconsisting of mth roots of unity.Sinceχis a homomorphism, it is clear that for eachmthere nm exists and integer 0nmm1 (possibly depending onm) so thatχ(z) =z for allzHm. Letzmdenote a choice of generator forHm. Forprimesp6=q, we know we can takezpq=zpzq. Sowe compute in the groupHpq, npqnpqnpqnpnq =zq) =χ(zpzq) =χ(zp) z zq pq=χ(zpχ(zq) =z z . p pq In other words npqnpnqnpq z=z . p q SinceHpandHqintersect only in{1}, npq=npmodulop and npq=nqmoduloq. Thusnp=nqmodp(as well as modq). Soindeed for all primesp,npis a constant 1 n(independent ofp). Sinceall prime roots of unity are dense inS, the claim follows. For (2), writeAθforχ(e); soAθis anN×Nmatrix. SinceAθcannot be the zero matrix, it has a nonzero eigenvalue.Pick one and call itλθ. Considerthe 1 matrixBθ=AθλθId. Sinceχis a homomorphism andSis abelian, it’s clear thatBθcommutes with allAφthe kernel. HenceKofBis an invariant subspace of N N C. Byhypothesis, this means thatKis either{0}or all orC. Theformer case is impossible since any eigenvector corresponding toλθThusis in the kernel.K N must be all ofC. SoBθIn other words= 0.Aθis the (nonzero) constant multiple N λθof the identity.Thusanysubspace ofCis invariant.This is a contradiction unlessN= 1.˜
