Uniformly convex space

Uniformly convex space

In mathematics, uniformly convex spaces are common examples of reflexive Banach spaces. These include all Hilbert spaces and the L"p" spaces for 1 The concept of uniform convexity was first introduced by James A. Clarkson in 1936.


A uniformly convex space is a Banach space so that, for every epsilon>0 there is some delta>0 so that for any two vectors with |x|le1 and |y|le 1,




Intuitively, the center of a line segment inside the unit ball must lie deep inside the unit ball unless the segment is short.


* The Milman–Pettis theorem states that every uniformly convex space is reflexive.

* Hanner's inequalities say that L"p" spaces (1 are uniformly convex.
