Review of inner products and inner product spaces.
Inner products
We have defined distances and norms to measure whether two signals are different from each other and to measure the “size” of a signal. However, it is possible for two pairs of signals with the same norms and distance to exhibit different behavior - an example of this contrast is to pick a pair of orthogonal signals and a pair of non-orthogonal signals, as shown in
[link] .
To obtain a new metric that distinguishes between orthogonal and non-orthogonal we use the
inner product , which provides us with a new metric of “similarity”.
Definition 1 An
inner product for a vector space
$(X,R,+,\xb7)$ is a function
$\u27e8\xb7,\xb7\u27e9:X\times X\to R$ , sometimes denoted
$(\xb7|\xb7)$ , with the following properties: for all
$x,y,z\in X$ and
$a\in R$ ,
$\u27e8x,x\u27e9\ge 0$ and
$\u27e8x,x\u27e9=0$ if and only if
$x=0$ .
A vector space with an inner product is called an
inner product space or a
pre-Hilbert space.
It is worth pointing out that properties (2-3) say that the inner product is linear, albeit only on the first input. However, if
$R=\mathbb{R}$ , then the properties (2-3) hold for both inputs and the inner product is linear on both inputs.
Just as every norm induces a distance, every inner product induces a norm:
${\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{i}=\sqrt{\u27e8x,x\u27e9}$ .
Hilbert spaces
Definition 2 An inner product space that is complete under the metric induced by the induced norm is called a
Hilbert space .
Example 1 The following are examples of inner product spaces:
$X={\mathbb{R}}^{n}$ with the inner product
$\u3008x,y\u3009={\sum}_{i=1}^{n}{x}_{i}{y}_{i}={y}^{T}x$ . The corresponding induced norm is given by
${\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{i}=\sqrt{\u3008x,x\u3009}=\sqrt{{\sum}_{i=1}^{n}{x}_{i}^{2}}={\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{2}$ , i.e., the
${\ell}_{2}$ norm. Since
$({\mathbb{R}}^{n},\parallel \xb7{\parallel}_{2})$ is complete, then it is a Hilbert space.
$X=C\left[T\right]$ with inner product
$\u3008x,y\u3009={\int}_{T}x\left(t\right)y\left(t\right)dt$ . The corresponding induced norm is
${\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{i}=\sqrt{{\int}_{T}x{\left(t\right)}^{2}dt}={\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{2}$ , i.e., the
${L}_{2}$ norm.
If we allow for
$X=C\left[T\right]$ to be complex-valued, then the inner product is defined by
$\u3008x,y\u3009={\int}_{T}x\left(t\right)\overline{y\left(t\right)}dt$ , and the corresponding induced norm is
${\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{i}=\sqrt{{\int}_{T}x\left(t\right)\phantom{\rule{3.33333pt}{0ex}}\overline{x\left(t\right)}dt}=\sqrt{{\int}_{T}{\left|x\left(t\right)\right|}^{2}dt}={\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{2}$ .
$X={\mathbb{C}}^{n}$ with inner product
$\u3008x,y\u3009={\sum}_{i=1}^{n}{x}_{i}\overline{{y}_{i}}={y}^{H}x$ ; here,
${x}^{H}$ denotes the Hermitian of
$x$ .
The corresponding induced norm is
${\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{i}=\sqrt{{\sum}_{i=1}^{n}{|{x}_{i}|}^{2}}={\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{2}$ .
Theorem 1 (Cauchy-Schwarz Inequality) Assume
$X$ is an inner product space. For each
$x,y\in X$ , we have that
$\left|\u3008x,y\u3009\right|\le {\left|\right|x\left|\right|}_{i}{\left|\right|y\left|\right|}_{i}$ , with equality if (
$i$ )
$y=ax$ for some
$a\in R$ ; (
$ii$ )
$x=0$ ; or (
$iii$ )
$y=0$ .
Proof: We consider two separate cases.
if
$y=0$ then
$\u27e8x,y\u27e9=\overline{\u27e8y,x\u27e9}=\overline{\u27e80\xb7y,x\u27e9}=\overline{0}\overline{\u27e8y,x\u27e9}=0\u27e8x,y\u27e9=0={\parallel x\parallel}_{i}{\parallel y\parallel}_{i}$ . The proof is similar if
$x=0$ .
If
$x,y\ne 0$ then
$0\le \u27e8x-ay,x-ay\u27e9=\u27e8x,x\u27e9-a\u27e8y,x\u27e9-\overline{a}\u27e8x,y\u27e9+a\overline{a}\u27e8y,y\u27e9$ , with equality if
$x-ay=0$ , i.e.,
$x=ay$ for some
$a\in R$ . Now set
$a=\frac{\u27e8x,y\u27e9}{\u27e8y,y\u27e9}$ , and so
$\overline{a}=\frac{\u27e8y,x\u27e9}{\u27e8y,y\u27e9}$ . We then have
This implies
$\frac{{\left|\u27e8x,y\u27e9\right|}^{2}}{{\left|\right|y\left|\right|}^{2}}\le {\left|\right|x\left|\right|}^{2}$ , and so since all quantities involved are positive we have
$|\u27e8x,y\u27e9|\le \left|\right|x\left|\right|\xb7\left|\right|y\left|\right|$ .
Properties of inner products spaces
In the previous lecture we discussed norms induced by inner products but failed to prove that they are valid norms. Most properties are easy to check; below, we check the triangle inequality for the induced norm.
Lemma 1 If
${\parallel x\parallel}_{i}=\sqrt{\u27e8x,x\u27e9}$ , then
${\parallel x+y\parallel}_{i}\le {\parallel x\parallel}_{i}+{\parallel y\parallel}_{i}$ .
At this point, we can upper bound the real part of the inner product by its magnitude:
$\mathrm{real}\left(\u2329x,,,y\u232a\right)\le \left|\u2329x,,,y\u232a\right|$ . Thus, we obtain
where the second inequality is due to the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality. Thus we have shown that
${\u2225x,+,y\u2225}_{i}\le {\u2225x\u2225}_{i}+{\u2225y\u2225}_{i}$ .
Here's an interesting (and easy to prove) fact about inner products:
Lemma 2 If
$\u2329x,,,y\u232a=0$ for all
$x\in X$ then
$y=0$ .
Proof: Pick
$x=y$ , and so
$\u3008y,,,y\u3009=0$ . Due to the properties of an inner product, this implies that
$y=0$ .
Earlier, we considered whether all distances are induced by norms (and found a counterexample). We can ask the same question here: are all norms induced by inner products? The following theorem helps us check for this property.
Theorem 2 (Parallelogram Law) If a norm
$\u2225\xb7\u2225$ is induced by an inner product, then
${\u2225x,+,y\u2225}^{2}+{\u2225x,-,y\u2225}^{2}=2({\u2225x\u2225}^{2}+{\u2225y\u2225}^{2})$ for all
$x,y\in X$ .
This theorem allows us to rule out norms that cannot be induced.
Proof: For an induced norm we have
${\u2225x\u2225}^{2}=\u3008x,,,x\u3009$ . Therefore,
Example 2 Consider the normed space
$(C\left[T\right],{L}_{\infty})$ , and recall that
${\u2225x\u2225}_{\infty}={sup}_{t\in T}\left|x\left(t\right)\right|$ . If this norm is induced, then the Parallelogram law would hold. If not, then we can find a counterexample. In particular, let
$T=[0,2\pi ]$ ,
$x\left(t\right)=1$ , and
$y\left(t\right)=cos\left(t\right)$ . Then, we want to check if
${\u2225x,+,y\u2225}^{2}+{\u2225x,-,y\u2225}^{2}=2({\u2225x\u2225}^{2}+{\u2225y\u2225}^{2})$ . We compute:
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change .
maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
