Abstract

The history of modal intervals goes back to the very first publications on the topic of interval calculus. The modal interval analysis is used in Computer graphics and Computer Aided Design (CAD), namely, the computation of narrow bounds on Bezier and -Spline curves. Since modal intervals are used in many fields, we introduce a new sequence space called the Hahn sequence space of modal intervals. We have given some new definitions and theorems. Some inclusion relation and some topological properties of this space are investigated. Also dual spaces of this space are computed.

1. Introduction

Interval arithmetic was first suggested by Dwyer [1] in 1951. Furthermore, Moore and Yang [2, 3] have developed applications to differential equations. Chiao in 2002 [4] introduced sequence of interval numbers and defined usual convergence of sequences of interval number. Recently, Zararsız and Şengönül [5] introduced null, bounded, and convergent sequence space of modals. Hahn in 1922 [6] defined space and G. Goes and S. Goes [7] in 1970 studied the functional analytic properties of this space. The Hahn sequence space was initiated by Rao in 1990 [8]. The present paper is devoted to the study of Hahn sequence space of modal intervals.

Let us denote the set of all real valued closed interval by , the set of positive integers by , and the set of all real numbers by . Any element of is called interval number and it is denoted by . That is . An interval number is a closed subset of real numbers. Let and be, respectively, first and last points of the interval number . Therefore, when , is not an interval number. But in modal analysis is a valid interval. A modal is defined by a pair of real numbers . Let us denote the set of all modals by . Let us suppose that . Then the algebraic operations between and are defined in the Kaucher arithmetic [9]. For a modal operator is defined as . Thus, if , then , . Let us suppose that ; then is called symmetric modal if or vice versa.

The set of all modals is a metric space with the metric defined by

If and , then the set is reduced ordinary set of interval numbers which is complete metric space with the metric defined in (1) [4]. If we take and , we obtain the usual metric of with , where .

2. Definitions and Preliminaries

Let be a function from to which is defined by , . Then is called sequence of modals. We will denote the set of all sequences of modals by .

For two sequences of modals and , the addition, scalar product, and multiplication are defined as follows: , , , ,, respectively.

The set is a vector space since the vector space rules are clearly provided. The zero element of is the sequence , all terms of which are zero interval. If then inverse of , according to addition, is .

Let . If a sequence space contains a sequence of modals with the property that for every there is a unique sequence of scalars such that then is called a Schauder modal basis for . The series which has the sum is then called the expansion of with respect to , and we write .

Let and be linear space of modals. Then a function is called a linear transformation if and only if, for all and all , .

Proposition 1. If , , and are sequences of symmetric modal, then the following equality holds:

Definition 2. A sequence of modals is said to be convergent to the modal if for each there exists a positive integer such that for all and we denote it by writing . Thus, and .

Definition 3. A sequence of modals, , is said to be modal fundamental sequence if for every there exists such that whenever .

Definition 4. A sequence of modals is said to be solid if whenever for all and .

Definition 5. A sequence of generalized intervals is said to be monotone if contains the canonical preimage of all its step spaces.

Definition 6 (Weierstrass -test). Let be given. If there exists an such that and the series converges, then the series is uniformly and absolutely convergent in .

The following spaces are needed for our work:
