Bounded generators of linear spaces

Takashi Ito and Thomas I. Seidman

Vol. 26 (1968), No. 2, 283–287
Abstract

Let Sφ = {x X : supαφα(x) < ∞} where φ = {φα} is a family of semi-norms determining the topology of X. It is shown that φ may be chosen so Sφ is dense if and only if X has a bounded generating set if and only if there is a continuous norm on X. It is shown that these conditions hold for separable Fréchet spaces and for quotients of products of Banach spaces. An example is given of a Fréchet space containing no bounded generating set thus contradicting an assertion of L. Maté that Sφ is dense for Fréchet spaces.
