Higher derivatives of mappings of locally convex spaces

  • 39 Accesses


We establish sufficient conditions for n-fold bounded differentiability (“b-differentiability”) of mappings of locally convex spaces and sufficient conditions for n-fold Hyers-Lang differentiability (“HL-differentiability”) of mappings of pseudotopological linear spaces. We describe a class of locally convex spaces on which there exist everywhere infinitely b-differentiable real functions which are not everywhere continuous (and so are not everywhere HL-differentiable). Our results show, in particular, that for a wide class of locally convex spaces a significant number of the known definitions of C-mappings fall into two classes of equivalent definitions.
