abstract = {The aim of this paper is to prove the statement announced in the title which can be reformulated in the following way. Let H be a separable infinite-dimensional Hilbert space and let Φ: B(H) → B(H) be a continuous linear mapping with the property that for every A ∈ B(H) there exists a sequence $(Φ_n)$ of automorphisms of B(H) (depending on A) such that $Φ(A)= lim_n Φ_n(A)$. Then Φ is an automorphism. Moreover, a similar statement holds for the set of all surjective isometries of B(H).},

AB - The aim of this paper is to prove the statement announced in the title which can be reformulated in the following way. Let H be a separable infinite-dimensional Hilbert space and let Φ: B(H) → B(H) be a continuous linear mapping with the property that for every A ∈ B(H) there exists a sequence $(Φ_n)$ of automorphisms of B(H) (depending on A) such that $Φ(A)= lim_n Φ_n(A)$. Then Φ is an automorphism. Moreover, a similar statement holds for the set of all surjective isometries of B(H).
