Characterizations of Norm–Parallelism in Spaces of Continuous Functions

Original Paper


In this paper, we consider the characterization of norm–parallelism problem in some classical Banach spaces. In particular, for two continuous functions fg on a compact Hausdorff space K, we show that f is norm–parallel to g if and only if there exists a probability measure (i.e., positive and of full measure equal to 1) \(\mu \) with its support contained in the norm-attaining set \(\{x\in K: \, |f(x)| = \Vert f\Vert \}\) such that \(\big |\int _K \overline{f(x)}g(x){\text {d}}\mu (x)\big | = \Vert f\Vert \,\Vert g\Vert \).
