1. For any metric space (X; d), show that [d(x; y) d(y; z)[ _ d(x; z) for all

is a metric. Analyze which points are at distance one

of the point (2; 0) and which points are at distance 2 of the point (1; 1).

3. Let d

distance.

4. Consider the metric space (X; d). Dene, for all x; y X the function

d

(x; y) =

d(x;y)

1+d(x;y)

:

(a) Show that d

0

denes a metric on X:

(b) Show that d

0

is a bounded function.

(c) Show that d

0

orders the distances between points in the space ordi-

nally the same way as the original metric (that is: d(x; y) > d(z; w) =

d

0

(x; y) > d

0

5. If (X; d) and (X; d

0

) are metric spaces:

(a) is (X; maxd; d

0

) a metric space?

(b) is (X; mind; d

0

) a metric space?

6. Let X denote the set of all continuous real functions on [0; 1] and dene

the distance: For all f; g X,

d

(f; g) =

Z

[f(t) g(t)[dt:

Prove that (X; d

1

) is a metric space.

7. Show which of the metric spaces described in the theory classes have be-

hind some normed space and, in these cases, describe the norms.
