Complex case[edit]

what about the complex case?

thats described in Banach_space, under the heading Relationship to Hilbert spaces

The complex case is now described and sourced in the introduction. Brews ohare (talk) 16:03, 27 June 2010 (UTC)


I think that mentioning the sesquilinear forms is a bit misleading. The sesquilinear form is defined to be linear in the second variable (and conjugate-linear in the first), but the euations in section Complex numbers seem to be true for an inner product that is linear in the first variable (and conjugate-linear in the second one).

In my opinion the referencing style - putting the equation/theorem in quotes before the title - is weird. I've never seen this style before. I think page numbers obviate equation/theorem numbers.
