Stability and instability of weighted composition operators

Source: arXiv


Let $\epsilon >0$. A continuous linear operator $T:C(X) \ra C(Y)$ is said to be {\em $\epsilon$-disjointness preserving} if $\vc (Tf)(Tg)\vd_{\infty} \le \epsilon$, whenever $f,g\in C(X)$ satisfy $\vc f\vd_{\infty} =\vc g\vd_{\infty} =1$ and $fg\equiv 0$. In this paper we address basically two main questions: 1.- How close there must be a weighted composition operator to a given $\epsilon$-disjointness preserving operator? 2.- How far can the set of weighted composition operators be from a given $\epsilon$-disjointness preserving operator? We address these two questions distinguishing among three cases: $X$ infinite, $X$ finite, and $Y$ a singleton ($\epsilon$-disjointness preserving functionals). We provide sharp stability and instability bounds for the three cases.

    ABSTRACT: If X and Y are realcompact and T: C(X) → C(Y) is a ring isomorphism then two things happen: (1) there is a homeomorphism h of X onto Y and (2) T is a composition map: for all ƒ in C(X), Tƒ = ƒ ∘ h. We strengthen that result in Propositions 2 and 3. We discard the multiplicative property of T and assume only that T is biseparating in the sense that ƒg = 0 ⇔ TƒTg = 0. It remains true that X is homeomorphic to Y but this time, if T is also linear, it is a weighted composition map: for some weight function a in C(Y), Tƒ = a(ƒ ∘ h).

    ABSTRACT: Let T, S be non-void completely regular locally compact Hausdorff spaces and Let C o (T) (resp. Coo (T)) be the Banach space of all real-valued continuous functions on T which are zero at infinity (resp. the normed space of all continuous functions with compact support). A linear map H defined from a subalgebra A of Co(T ) into a subalgebra B of Co(S ) is said to be separating or disjointness preserving (also called d-homomorphisms) if x �9 y - 0 implies H x - H y - 0 for all x, y e A.
