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...

We construct a totally disconnected compact Hausdorff space K₊ which has clopen subsets K₊” ⊆ K₊’ ⊆ K₊ such that K₊” is homeomorphic to K₊ and hence C(K₊”) is isometric as a Banach space to C(K₊) but C(K₊’) is not isomorphic to C(K₊). This gives two nonisomorphic Banach spaces (necessarily nonseparable) of the form C(K) which are isomorphic to complemented subspaces of each other (even in the above strong isometric sense), providing a solution to the Schroeder-Bernstein problem for Banach spaces...

A family is constructed of cardinality equal to the continuum, whose members are totally incomparable hereditarily indecomposable Banach spaces.

We show that a complex Banach space is weakly Lindelöf determined if and only if the dual unit ball of any equivalent norm is weak* Valdivia compactum. We deduce that a complex Banach space X is weakly Lindelöf determined if and only if any nonseparable Banach space isomorphic to a complemented subspace of X admits a projectional resolution of the identity. These results complete the previous ones on real spaces.

The famous Gowers tree space is the first example of a space not containing c₀, ℓ₁ or a reflexive subspace. We present a space with a similar construction and prove that it is hereditarily indecomposable (HI) and has ℓ₂ as a quotient space. Furthermore, we show that every bounded linear operator on it is of the form λI + W where W is a weakly compact (hence strictly singular) operator.

We give a sufficient and necessary condition for a Radon-Nikodým compact space to be Eberlein compact in terms of a separable fibre connecting weak-* and norm approximation.

A class of Banach spaces, countably determined in their weak topology (hence, WCD spaces) is defined and studied; we call them strongly weakly countably determined (SWCD) Banach spaces. The main results are the following: (i) A separable Banach space not containing ℓ¹(ℕ) is SWCD if and only if it has separable dual; thus in particular, not every separable Banach space is SWCD. (ii) If K is a compact space, then the space C(K) is SWCD if and only if K is countable.

In this paper we define and investigate a new subclass of those Banach spaces which are $K$-analytic in their weak topology; we call them strongly weakly $K$-analytic (SWKA) Banach spaces. The class of SWKA Banach spaces extends the known class of strongly weakly compactly generated (SWCG) Banach spaces (and their subspaces) and it is related to that in the same way as the familiar classes of weakly $K$-analytic (WKA) and weakly compactly generated (WCG) Banach spaces are related. We show that: (i) not...

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 46B20, 46B26.We construct a non-reflexive, l^2 saturated Banach space such that every non-reflexive subspace has non-separable dual.

We present an example of a Banach space $E$ admitting an equivalent weakly uniformly rotund norm and such that there is no $\Phi :E\to {c}_{0}\left(\Gamma \right)$, for any set $\Gamma $, linear, one-to-one and bounded. This answers a problem posed by Fabian, Godefroy, Hájek and Zizler. The space $E$ is actually the dual space ${Y}^{*}$ of a space $Y$ which is a subspace of a WCG space.

We prove that weakly Lindelöf determined Banach spaces are characterized by the existence of a ``full'' projectional generator. Some other results pertaining to this class of Banach spaces are given.

We describe how the Szlenk index has been used in various areas of the geometry of Banach spaces. We cover the following domains of application of this notion: non existence of universal spaces, linear classification of C(K) spaces, descriptive set theory, renorming problems and non linear classification of Banach spaces.

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 54H05, 03E15, 46B26We answer positively a question raised by S. Argyros: Given any coanalytic, nonalytic subset Σ′ of the irrationals, we construct, in Mercourakis space c1(Σ′), an adequate compact which is Gul’ko and not Talagrand. Further, given any Borel, non Fσ subset Σ′ of the irrationals, we construct, in c1(Σ′), an adequate compact which is Talagrand and not Eberlein.Supported by grants AV CR 101-90-03, and GA CR 201-01-1198

Let X be a Banach space, u ∈ X** and K, Z two subsets of X**. Denote by d(u,Z) and d(K,Z) the distances to Z from the point u and from the subset K respectively. The Krein-Smulian Theorem asserts that the closed convex hull of a weakly compact subset of a Banach space is weakly compact; in other words, every w*-compact subset K ⊂ X** such that d(K,X) = 0 satisfies d(cow*(K),X) = 0.We extend this result in the following way: if Z ⊂ X is a closed subspace of X and K ⊂ X** is a w*-compact subset of...

∗ The present article was originally submitted for the second volume of Murcia Seminar on Functional Analysis (1989). Unfortunately it has been not possible to continue with Murcia Seminar publication anymore. For historical reasons the present vesion correspond with the original one.Weak completeness properties of Boolean rings are related to the property of being a Baire space (when suitably topologised) and to renorming properties of the Banach spaces of continuous functions on the corresponding...
