Topology of Linear Spaces and Convex Sets
In this chapter, several basic results on topological linear spaces and convex sets are presented. We will characterize finite-dimensionality, metrizability, and normability of topological linear spaces. Among the important results are the Hahn–Banach Extension Theorem, the Separation Theorem, the Closed Graph Theorem, and the Open Mapping Theorem. We will also prove the Michael Selection Theorem, which will be applied in the proof of the Bartle–Graves Theorem.
