Some strongly bounded classes of Banach spaces

Pandelis Dodos, Valentin Ferenczi (2007)

Fundamenta Mathematicae


We show that the classes of separable reflexive Banach spaces and of spaces with separable dual are strongly bounded. This gives a new proof of a recent result of E. Odell and Th. Schlumprecht, asserting that there exists a separable reflexive Banach space containing isomorphic copies of every separable uniformly convex Banach space.

The controlled separable projection property for Banach spaces

Jesús Ferrer, Marek Wójtowicz (2011)

Open Mathematics


Let X, Y be two Banach spaces. We say that Y is a quasi-quotient of X if there is a continuous operator R: X → Y such that its range, R(X), is dense in Y. Let X be a nonseparable Banach space, and let U, W be closed subspaces of X and Y, respectively. We prove that if X has the Controlled Separable Projection Property (CSPP) (this is a weaker notion than the WCG property) and Y is a quasi-quotient of X, then the structure of Y resembles the structure of a separable Banach space: (a)...

Quotients of Banach spaces and surjectively universal spaces

Pandelis Dodos (2010)

Studia Mathematica


We characterize those classes 𝓒 of separable Banach spaces for which there exists a separable Banach space Y not containing ℓ₁ and such that every space in the class 𝓒 is a quotient of Y.

The topological complexity of sets of convex differentiable functions.

Mohammed Yahdi (1998)

Revista Matemática Complutense


Let C(X) be the set of all convex and continuous functions on a separable infinite dimensional Banach space X, equipped with the topology of uniform convergence on bounded subsets of X. We show that the subset of all convex Fréchet-differentiable functions on X, and the subset of all (not necessarily equivalent) Fréchet-differentiable norms on X, reduce every coanalytic set, in particular they are not Borel-sets.

Non-universal families of separable Banach spaces

Ondřej Kurka (2016)

Studia Mathematica


We prove that if 𝓒 is a family of separable Banach spaces which is analytic with respect to the Effros Borel structure and no X ∈ 𝓒 is isometrically universal for all separable Banach spaces, then there exists a separable Banach space with a monotone Schauder basis which is isometrically universal for 𝓒 but not for all separable Banach spaces. We also establish an analogous result for the class of strictly convex spaces.
