Abstract
The notion of linear 2-normed spaces was introduced by S. Gahler ([8,9,10,11]), and these space have been extensively studied by C. Diminnie, R. Ehret, S. Gahler, K. Iseki, A. White, Jr, and others. For nonzero vectors x,y in X, let V(x,y) denote the subspace of X generated by x and y. A linear 2-normed space (X,v) is said to be strictly convex ([3]) if v(x+y,z)=v(x,z)+v(y+z) and z not.mem.V(x,y) imply that y=ax for some a>0. Some characterizations of strict convexity for linear 2-normed spaces are given in [1,3,4,5,12]. Also, a linear 2-normed space (X,v) is said to be strictly 2-convex ([6]) if v(x,y)=v(x,z)=v(y,z)=1/3v(x+z, y+z)=1 implies that z=x+y. These space have been studied in [2,4,6,13]. It is easy to see that every strictly convex linear 2-normed space is always strictly 2-convex but the converse is not necessarily true. Throughout this paper, let (X,v) denote a linear 2-normed space.
