Convergence of continuous linear functionals and their level sets. (English) Zbl 0662.46015
Let X be a real Banach space with continuous dual X * . We characterize both norm and weak* convergence of sequences in X * to a nonzero limit in terms of the convergence of the level sets of the linear functionals. When X is reflexive, norm convergence is equivalent to the Mosco convergence of level sets. Using this fact, we show that Mosco convergence of sequences of closed convex sets in a reflexive space may be properly stronger than pointwise convergence of the distance functions for the sets in the sequence.
