Let E be a complete locally convex space (l.c.s.) and f:RE a continuous function; then f is said to be almost-periodic (a.p.) if, for every neighbourhood (of the origin in E) U, there exists =(U)>0 such that every interval [a,a+] of the real line contains at least one τ point such that f(t+τ)f(t)U for every tR. We prove in this paper many useful properties of a.p. functions in l.c.s, and give Bochner's criteria in Fréchet spaces.
