# c space

In the mathematical field of functional analysis, the space denoted by * c* is the vector space of all convergent sequences (

*x*

_{n}) of real numbers or complex numbers. When equipped with the uniform norm:

- <math>\|x\|_\infty = \sup_n |x_n|</math>

the space *c* becomes a Banach space. It is a closed linear subspace of the space of bounded sequences, ℓ^{∞}, and contains as a closed subspace the Banach space *c*_{0} of sequences converging to zero. The dual of *c* is isometrically isomorphic to ℓ^{1}, as is that of *c*_{0}. In particular, neither *c* nor *c*_{0} is reflexive.

In the first case, the isomorphism of ℓ^{1} with *c** is given as follows. If (*x*_{0},*x*_{1},...) ∈ ℓ^{1}, then the pairing with an element (*y*_{1},*y*_{2},...) in *c* is given by

- <math>x_0\lim_{n\to\infty} y_n + \sum_{i=1}^\infty x_i y_i.</math>

This is the Riesz representation theorem on the ordinal ω.

For *c*_{0}, the pairing between (*x*_{i}) in ℓ^{1} and (*y*_{i}) in *c*_{0} is given by

- <math>\sum_{i=0}^\infty x_iy_i.</math>
