# Definition:Uniform Convergence of Product

## Definition for Mappings to a Field

Let $X$ be a set.

Let $\struct {\mathbb K, \norm{\,\cdot\,}}$ be a valued field.

Let $\mathbb K$ be complete.

Let $\left \langle {f_n} \right \rangle$ be a sequence of bounded mappings $f_n: X \to \mathbb K$.

### Definition 1

The infinite product $\displaystyle \prod_{n \mathop = 1}^\infty f_n$ **converges uniformly** if and only if there exists $n_0 \in \N$ such that:

- The sequence of partial products of $\displaystyle \prod_{n \mathop = n_0}^\infty f_n$ converges uniformly
- $\displaystyle \inf_{x \mathop \in X} \norm{ \prod_{n \mathop = n_0}^\infty f_n \left({x}\right)} \ne 0$.

### Definition 2

The infinite product $\displaystyle \prod_{n \mathop = 1}^\infty f_n$ **converges uniformly** if and only if it converges in the normed algebra of bounded mappings $X \to \mathbb K$.

### Definition for Continuous Mappings on a Compact Space

Let $X$ be a compact topological space.

Let $\struct {\mathbb K, \norm{\,\cdot\,}}$ be a complete valued field.

Let $\sequence{f_n}$ be a sequence of continuous mappings $f_n: X \to \mathbb K$.

The infinite product $\displaystyle \prod_{n \mathop = 1}^\infty f_n$ **converges uniformly** if and only if there exists $n_0 \in \N$ such that the sequence of partial products of $\displaystyle \prod_{n \mathop = n_0}^\infty f_n$ converges uniformly and is nonzero.

## Definition for Mappings to a Normed Algebra

Let $X$ be a set.

Let $\mathbb K$ be a complete division ring with norm $\norm {\, \cdot \,}_{\mathbb K}$.

Let $A$ be a normed unital algebra over $\mathbb K$ with norm $\|\cdot\|$.

Let $\left \langle {f_n} \right \rangle$ be a sequence of bounded mappings $f_n: X \to A$.

The infinite product $\displaystyle \prod_{n \mathop = 1}^\infty f_n$ **converges uniformly** if and only if it converges in the normed algebra of bounded mappings $X \to A$.

## Remark

As with **locally uniform convergence**, the notion of **uniform convergence** of a product is more delicate, which is why one usually restricts to bounded mappings or continuous mappings on a compact space.

Note that Continuous Function on Compact Subspace of Euclidean Space is Bounded.

Desirable consequences hereof are:

- Partial Products of Uniformly Convergent Product Converge Uniformly
- Uniform Convergence of Product Does Not Depend on Finite Number of Factors
