Formulation of the theorem[edit]

I am not sure to understand the formulation of this theorem. Should'nt it rather be stated as: "a Banach space B is reflexive if and only if every continuous linear functional on B restricted to the closed unit ball attains its maximum"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Polucs (talkcontribs)

Same thing. Yours is perhaps more accurate. The way it is now seems more common, though. Jmath666 (talk) 07:18, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
