      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In this paper we study a geometric property for Banach spaces called condition (*), introduced by de Reynaet al in [3], A Banach space has this property if for any weakly null sequencexn of unit vectors inX, ifx*n is any sequence of unit vectors inX* that attain their norm at xn’s, then$$x_n^* \mathop \to \limits^{w*} 0.$$. We show that a Banach space satisfies condition (*) for all equivalent norms iff the space has the Schur property. We also study two related geometric conditions, one of which is useful in calculating the essential norm of an operator.

      For 1 ≤p ≤ ∞ we show that there are no denting points in the unit ball of ℓ(lp). This extends a result recently proved by Grząślewicz and Scherwentke whenp = 2 [GS1]. We also show that for any Banach spaceX and for any measure space (Ω, A, μ), the unit ball of ℓ(L1 (μ), X) has denting points iffL1(μ) is finite dimensional and the unit ball ofX has a denting point. We also exhibit other classes of Banach spacesX andY for which the unit ball of ℓ(X, Y) has no denting points. When X* has the extreme point intersection property, we show that all ‘nice’ operators in the unit ball of ℓ(X, Y) are strongly extreme points.

      In this note we consider the property of being constrained in the bidual, for the space of Bochner integrable functions. For a Banach spaceX having the Radon-Nikodym property and constrained in its bidual and forY ⊂ X, under a natural assumption onY, we show thatL1 (μ, X/Y) is constrained in its bidual andL1 (μ, Y) is a proximinal subspace ofL1(μ, X). As an application of these results, we show that, ifL1(μ, X) admits generalized centers for finite sets and ifY ⊂ X is reflexive, thenL1μ, X/Y) also admits generalized centers for finite sets.

    • Very smooth points of spaces of operators

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In this paper we study very smooth points of Banach spaces with special emphasis on spaces of operators. We show that when the space of compact operators is anM-ideal in the space of bounded operators, a very smooth operatorT attains its norm at a unique vectorx (up to a constant multiple) andT(x) is a very smooth point of the range space. We show that if for every equivalent norm on a Banach space, the dual unit ball has a very smooth point then the space has the Radon-Nikodým property. We give an example of a smooth Banach space without any very smooth points.

    • Nice surjections on spaces of operators

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A bounded linear operator is said to be nice if its adjoint preserves extreme points of the dual unit ball. Motivated by a description due to Labuschagne and Mascioni [9] of such maps for the space of compact operators on a Hilbert space, in this article we consider a description of nice surjections onK(X, Y) for Banach spacesX, Y. We give necessary and sufficient conditions when nice surjections are given by composition operators. Our results imply automatic continuity of these maps with respect to other topologies on spaces of operators. We also formulate the corresponding result forL(X, Y) thereby proving an analogue of the result from [9] forLp (1 <p ≠ 2 < ∞) spaces. We also formulate results when nice operators are not of the canonical form, extending and correcting the results from [8].

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In this paper we formulate and prove an order unit Banach space version of a Banach–Stone theorem type theorem for Riesz isomorphisms of the space of vector-valued continuous functions. Similar results were obtained recently for the case of lattice-valued continuous functions in [5] and [6].
