## Abstract

Theorem 3.7 of Bhardwaj and Gupta, Cesàro summable difference sequence space, J. Inequal. Appl. 2013:315, 2013, is incorrect as it stands. The corrected version of this theorem is given here.

**MSC:**40C05, 40A05, 46A45.

In [1], Bhardwaj and Gupta have introduced the Cesàro summable difference sequence space {C}_{1}(\mathrm{\Delta}) as the set of all complex sequences x=({x}_{k}) with ({x}_{k}-{x}_{k+1})\in {C}_{1}, where {C}_{1} is the linear space of all (C,1) summable sequences.

Unfortunately, Theorem 3.7 of [1] is incorrect, as it stands. Consequently the assertions of Corollaries 3.8 and 3.9 of [1] remain actually open. The corrected version of Theorem 3.7 of [1] is obtained here as Corollary 2 to Theorem 1, which is itself a negation of Corollary 3.8 of [1]. Finally Corollary 3.9 of [1] is proved as Theorem 3.

It is well known that {C}_{1} is separable (see, for example, Theorem 4 of [2]). In view of the fact [[3], Theorem 3] that ‘if a normed space X is separable, then so is X(\mathrm{\Delta})’, it follows that Theorem 3.7 of [1] is untrue. The mistake lies in the third line of the proof where it is claimed that *A* is uncountable. In fact, *A* is countable.

The following theorem provides a Schauder basis for {C}_{1}(\mathrm{\Delta}) and hence negates Corollary 3.8 of [1].

**Theorem 1** {C}_{1}(\mathrm{\Delta}) *has Schauder basis namely* \{\overline{e},e,{e}_{1},{e}_{2},\dots \}, *where* \overline{e}=(0,1,2,3,\dots ), e=(1,1,1,\dots ) *and* {e}_{k}=(0,0,0,\dots ,1,0,0,\dots ), 1 *is in the* *kth place and* 0 *elsewhere for* k=1,2,\dots .

*Proof* Let x=({x}_{k})\in {C}_{1}(\mathrm{\Delta}) with \frac{1}{k}{\sum}_{i=1}^{k}\mathrm{\Delta}{x}_{i}\to \ell, *i.e.*, {lim}_{k}\frac{1}{k}({x}_{1}-{x}_{k+1})=\ell. We have

so that x={x}_{1}e-\ell \overline{e}+{\sum}_{k}({x}_{k}-{x}_{1}+(k-1)\ell ){e}_{k}. If also we had x=ae+b\overline{e}+{\sum}_{k}{a}_{k}{e}_{k}, then

But for all n\in \mathbb{N}, |{x}_{1}-a-{a}_{1}|\le {\parallel {s}_{n}\parallel}_{\mathrm{\Delta}}, |\frac{kb-{x}_{k+1}+{x}_{1}+{a}_{k+1}-{a}_{1}}{k}|\le {\parallel {s}_{n}\parallel}_{\mathrm{\Delta}} for 1\le k\le n-1 and |\frac{-{a}_{1}+k(\ell +b)}{k}|\le {\parallel {s}_{n}\parallel}_{\mathrm{\Delta}} for all k\ge n. Letting n\to \mathrm{\infty}, we see that {x}_{1}=a, b=-\ell, {a}_{1}=0 and {a}_{k+1}={x}_{k+1}-kb-{x}_{1}+{a}_{1}=k\ell -{x}_{1}+{x}_{k+1}, for k\ge 1, so that the representation x={x}_{1}e-\ell \overline{e}+{\sum}_{k}({x}_{k}-{x}_{1}+(k-1)\ell ){e}_{k} is unique. □

The following is a correction of Theorem 3.7 of [1].

**Corollary 2** {C}_{1}(\mathrm{\Delta}) *is separable*.

The result follows from the fact that if a normed space has a Schauder basis, then it is separable.

Finally, we prove a theorem which is in fact Corollary 3.9 of [1].

**Theorem 3** {C}_{1}(\mathrm{\Delta}) *does not have the AK property*.

*Proof* Let x=({x}_{k})=(1,2,3,\dots )\in {C}_{1}(\mathrm{\Delta}). Consider the *n* th section of the sequence ({x}_{k}) written as {x}^{[n]}=(1,2,3,\dots ,n,0,0,\dots ). Then

which does not tend to 0 as n\to \mathrm{\infty}. □
