A bilinear version of Holsztyński's theorem on isometries of C(X)-spaces

Antonio Moreno Galindo, Ángel Rodríguez Palacios (2005)

Studia Mathematica

We prove that, for a compact metric space X not reduced to a point, the existence of a bilinear mapping ⋄: C(X) × C(X) → C(X) satisfying ||f⋄g|| = ||f|| ||g|| for all f,g ∈ C(X) is equivalent to the uncountability of X. This is derived from a bilinear version of Holsztyński's theorem [3] on isometries of C(X)-spaces, which is also proved in the paper.

A Characterization of Weakly Lindelöf Determined Banach Spaces

Kalenda, Ondřej (2003)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 46B26, 46B03, 46B04.We prove that a Banach space X is weakly Lindelöf determined if (and only if) each non-separable Banach space isomorphic to a complemented subspace of X has a projectional resolution of the identity. This answers a question posed by S. Mercourakis and S. Negrepontis and yields a converse of Amir-Lindenstrauss’ theorem. We also prove that a Banach space of the form C(K) where K is a continuous image of a Valdivia compactum is weakly Lindelöf...

A new proof of the noncommutative Banach-Stone theorem

David Sherman (2006)

Banach Center Publications

Surjective isometries between unital C*-algebras were classified in 1951 by Kadison [K]. In 1972 Paterson and Sinclair [PS] handled the nonunital case by assuming Kadison’s theorem and supplying some supplementary lemmas. Here we combine an observation of Paterson and Sinclair with variations on the methods of Yeadon [Y] and the author [S1], producing a fundamentally new proof of the structure of surjective isometries between (nonunital) C*-algebras. In the final section we indicate how our techniques...

A note on the Hyers-Ulam problem

Yunbai Dong (2015)

Colloquium Mathematicae

Let X,Y be real Banach spaces and ε > 0. Suppose that f:X → Y is a surjective map satisfying | ∥f(x)-f(y)∥ - ∥x-y∥ | ≤ ε for all x,y ∈ X. Hyers and Ulam asked whether there exists an isometry U and a constant K such that ∥f(x) - Ux∥ ≤ Kε for all x ∈ X. It is well-known that the answer to the Hyers-Ulam problem is positive and K = 2 is the best possible solution with assumption f(0) = U0 = 0. In this paper, using the idea of Figiel's theorem on nonsurjective isometries, we give a new proof of...

A proof of the Grünbaum conjecture

Bruce L. Chalmers, Grzegorz Lewicki (2010)

Studia Mathematica

Let V be an n-dimensional real Banach space and let λ(V) denote its absolute projection constant. For any N ∈ N with N ≥ n define λ N = s u p λ ( V ) : d i m ( V ) = n , V l ( N ) , λₙ = supλ(V): dim(V) = n. A well-known Grünbaum conjecture [Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 95 (1960)] says that λ₂ = 4/3. König and Tomczak-Jaegermann [J. Funct. Anal. 119 (1994)] made an attempt to prove this conjecture. Unfortunately, their Proposition 3.1, used in the proof, is incorrect. In this paper a complete proof of the Grünbaum conjecture is presented

A simple formula showing L¹ is a maximal overspace for two-dimensional real spaces

B. L. Chalmers, F. T. Metcalf (1992)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

It follows easily from a result of Lindenstrauss that, for any real twodimensional subspace v of L¹, the relative projection constant λ(v;L¹) of v equals its (absolute) projection constant λ ( v ) = s u p X λ ( v ; X ) . The purpose of this paper is to recapture this result by exhibiting a simple formula for a subspace V contained in L ( ν ) and isometric to v and a projection P from C ⊕ V onto V such that P = P , where P₁ is a minimal projection from L¹(ν) onto v. Specifically, if P = i = 1 2 U i v i , then P = i = 1 2 u i V i , where d V i = 2 v i d ν and d U i = - 2 u i d ν .

A theorem on isotropic spaces

Félix Cabello Sánchez (1999)

Studia Mathematica

Let X be a normed space and G F ( X ) the group of all linear surjective isometries of X that are finite-dimensional perturbations of the identity. We prove that if G F ( X ) acts transitively on the unit sphere then X must be an inner product space.

Affine bijections of C(X,I)

Janko Marovt (2006)

Studia Mathematica

Let 𝒳 be a compact Hausdorff space which satisfies the first axiom of countability, I = [0,1] and 𝓒(𝒳,I) the set of all continuous functions from 𝒳 to I. If φ: 𝓒(𝒳,I) → 𝓒(𝒳,I) is a bijective affine map then there exists a homeomorphism μ: 𝒳 → 𝒳 such that for every component C in 𝒳 we have either φ(f)(x) = f(μ(x)), f ∈ 𝓒(𝒳,I), x ∈ C, or φ(f)(x) = 1-f(μ(x)), f ∈ 𝓒(𝒳,I), x ∈ C.

An alternative Dunford-Pettis Property

Walden Freedman (1997)

Studia Mathematica

An alternative to the Dunford-Pettis Property, called the DP1-property, is introduced. Its relationship to the Dunford-Pettis Property and other related properties is examined. It is shown that p -direct sums of spaces with DP1 have DP1 if 1 ≤ p < ∞. It is also shown that for preduals of von Neumann algebras, DP1 is strictly weaker than the Dunford-Pettis Property, while for von Neumann algebras, the two properties are equivalent.

An alternative polynomial Daugavet property

Elisa R. Santos (2014)

Studia Mathematica

We introduce a weaker version of the polynomial Daugavet property: a Banach space X has the alternative polynomial Daugavet property (APDP) if every weakly compact polynomial P: X → X satisfies m a x ω | | I d + ω P | | = 1 + | | P | | . We study the stability of the APDP by c₀-, - and ℓ₁-sums of Banach spaces. As a consequence, we obtain examples of Banach spaces with the APDP, namely L ( μ , X ) and C(K,X), where X has the APDP.

An Example Concerning Valdivia Compact Spaces

Kalenda, Ondrej (1999)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

∗ Supported by Research grants GAUK 190/96 and GAUK 1/1998We prove that the dual unit ball of the space C0 [0, ω1 ) endowed with the weak* topology is not a Valdivia compact. This answers a question posed to the author by V. Zizler and has several consequences. Namely, it yields an example of an affine continuous image of a convex Valdivia compact (in the weak* topology of a dual Banach space) which is not Valdivia, and shows that the property of the dual unit ball being Valdivia is not an isomorphic...
