Multiplicative characterization of Hilbert spaces and other interesting classes of Banach spaces.

A. Rodríguez Palacios (1996)

Revista Matemática de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid

For a Banach space X, we show how the existence of a norm-one element u in X and a norm-one continuous bilinear mapping f: X x X --> X satisfying f(x,u) = f(u,x) = x for all x in X, together with some more intrinsic conditions, can be utilized to characterize X as a member of some relevant subclass of the class of Banach spaces.

Nonassociative normed algebras: geometric aspects

Angel Rodríguez Palacios (1994)

Banach Center Publications

Introduction. The aim of this paper is to review some relevant results concerning the geometry of nonassociative normed algebras, without assuming in the first instance that such algebras satisfy any familiar identity, like associativity, commutativity, or Jordan axiom. In the opinion of the author, the most impressive fact in this direction is that most of the celebrated natural geometric conditions that can be required for associative normed algebras, when imposed on a general nonassociative...

On the behaviour of Jordan-algebra norms on associative algebras

Miguel Cabrera Garcia, Antonio Moreno Galindo, Angel Rodríguez Palacios (1995)

Studia Mathematica

We prove that for a suitable associative (real or complex) algebra which has many nice algebraic properties, such as being simple and having minimal idempotents, a norm can be given such that the mapping (a,b) ↦ ab + ba is jointly continuous while (a,b) ↦ ab is only separately continuous. We also prove that such a pathology cannot arise for associative simple algebras with a unit. Similar results are obtained for the so-called "norm extension problem", and the relationship between these results...
