Where always (ϕn+1,k )k∈N is a subsequence of the sequence (ϕn,k )k∈N and the sequence (Tn ϕn,k )k∈N converges. From the index n on, the diagonal sequence(ϕk,k )k∈N is always a subsequence of the sequence (ϕn,k )k∈N , so that the sequence (Tn ψk )k∈N where ψk = ϕk,k converges for all n ∈ N. Let ε > 0 and take n ∈ N such that Tn − T < 3ε . There is k0 ∈ N such that Tn ψk − Tn ψ p < 3ε whenever k, p ≥ k0 . Then T ψk − T ψ p ≤ T ψk − Tn ψk + Tn ψk − Tn ψ p + Tn ψ p − T ψ p ≤ 3ε + 3ε + 3ε = ε, whenever k, p ≥ k0 .
2 Let ϕ ∈ H. (a) If (ϕk )nk=1 is a finite orthonormal family in H, then for all c1 , . . , cn ∈ C we have n n ck ϕk ≥ ϕ − ϕ− k=1 ϕk |ϕ ϕk , k=1 and equality holds only if ck = ϕk |ϕ for all k = 1, . . , n. Moreover, n | ϕk |ϕ |2 ≤ ϕ 2 . 1) k=1 (b) If K ⊂ H is an orthonormal set, then the family (| ψ|ϕ |2 )ψ∈K is summable and | ψ|ϕ |2 ≤ ϕ 2 (Bessel’s inequality). 1). Moreover, ϕ − nk=1 ck ϕk 2 also gets its smallest possible value ϕ 2 − nk=1 | ϕk |ϕ |2 with this and only this choice. (b) The claim is an immediate consequence of (a).
If (ϕi ), (ψi ) ∈ E, then the family ( ϕi | ψi )i∈I is summable. Moreover, the mapping h : E × E → C defined by the formula h((ϕi ), (ψi )) = i∈I ϕi | ψi is an inner product and equipped with this inner product E is a Hilbert space. We leave the rather straightforward proof as an exercise; the central ideas are already present in the case of the scalar sequence space 2 . The Hilbert space E in the above proposition is called the direct sum or Hilbert sum of the family (Hi )i∈I of Hilbert ⊕ Hi for it.
