Let [i.sub.X] be the isometrical embedding from X to [C.sub.R]([X.sup.*.sub.1]) or C([X.sup.*.sub.1]) defined by [i.sub.X] (x)(l) = l(x), for l [member of] [X.sup.*.sub.1] and x [member of] X.
Since [rho]I : [L.sup.2.sub.[upsilon]] [right arrow] [L.sup.2.sub.[sigma]] is an isometrical isomorphism, the strong convergence of [V.sup.-1.sub.n][R.sub.n][V.sub.n][L.sub.n] = [[rho].sup.- 1][([V.sup.0.sub.n]).sup.-1][R.sub.n][V.sup.0.sub.n][L.sup.0.sub.n][rho]I in [L.sup.2.sub.[upsilon]] follows, where we have used (5.1).
Isometrical cooling back to 20 [degrees] C causes residual setting stresses [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 5b OMITTED].
John Logan classifies the work as an ars poetica, "a complete statement and illustration of La Fontaine's poetic principles and practice" (3753A), and a close study of Psyche's passages in verse demonstrates that this assessment is correct: indeed, a close study of some of Psyche's poems demonstrates a wide range in form, while some poems display the formal conservatism of isometrical alexandrines, others resemble the Fables--and rococo poetry--in that they demonstrate no obvious pattern.
A footnote from Moevs's manuscript - sadly left out of the published edition - emphasizes the importance of this piece's isometrical construction based on multiples of seven, (hence the rifle: Gr.
