Fekete's lemma for componentwise subadditive functions of two or more real variables
Keywords:Subadditivity, multivariate analysis, simultaneous limit
We prove an analogue of Fekete's subadditivity lemma for functions of several real variables which are subadditive in each variable taken singularly. This extends both the classical case for subadditive functions of one real variable, and a similar result for functions of integer variables. While doing so, we prove that the functions with the property mentioned above are bounded in every closed and bounded subset of their domain. The arguments expand on those in Chapter 6 of E. Hille's 1948 textbook.
