ABSTRACT Let $E$ be a real Banach space. For $x,y \in E,$ we follow R.James in saying that $x$ is orthogonal to $y$ if $\|x+\alpha y\|\geq \|x\|$ for every $\alpha \in R$. We prove that every operator from $E$ into itself preserving orthogonality is an isometry multiplied by a constant.

    ABSTRACT: We investigate the class of operators preserving sesquilinear form. We show some properties similar to those characterizing mappings which preserve the inner product. Our considerations are carried out in spaces with inner product structure as well as in normed spaces. We also consider the class of additive mappings preserving orthogonality.

    ABSTRACT: We assume that H,KH,K are the complex Hilbert spaces and a linear operator T∈B(H;K)T∈B(H;K) is given. The object of this paper is to define and consider the certain basis of H connected with the operator T∈B(H;K)T∈B(H;K). This basis will play an important role in describing the approximately orthogonality preserving operators. Next, we will give some application of our results. We give new results and more general ones. Namely, we answer a question, whether a linear operator which approximately preserves orthogonality must be close to an orthogonality preserving one.
