I have spelled out here the characterization of continuity of a linear map $u \colon C^\infty(\mathbb{R}^n) \to \mathbb{R}$ as in Hörmander’s book

$\underset{K,k,C}{\exists} \left( \vert u(\Phi) \vert \;\leq\; C \underset{ {\vert \alpha \vert \leq k} }{\sum} \underset{x \in K}{sup} \vert \partial^\alpha K \vert \right)$

from the un-summed seminorms $\Phi \mapsto \underset{x \in K}{sup} {\vert \partial^\alpha \Phi(x) \vert}$.
