A well-known classical result states that c0 is linearly embeddable in a Banach lattice if and only if it is lattice embeddable. Improving results of H.P. Lotz, H.P. Rosenthal and N. Ghoussoub, we prove that C[0,1] shares this property with c0. Furthermore, we show that any infinite-dimensional closed sublattice of C[0,1] is either lattice isomorph...

Given two Banach spaces X and Y, we analyze when the projective tensor product X⊗ˆπY has Corson's property (C) or is weakly Lindelöf determined (WLD), subspace of a weakly compactly generated (WCG) space or subspace of a Hilbert generated space. For instance, we show that: (i) X⊗ˆπY is WLD if and only if both X and Y are WLD and all operators from...

Given a Banach space $X$, we say that a sequence $\{x_n\}$ in the unit ball of $X$ is $L$-orthogonal if $\Vert x+x_n\Vert \rightarrow 1+\Vert x\Vert $ for every $x\in X$. On the other hand, an element $x^{**}$ in the bidual sphere is said to be $L$-orthogonal (to $X$) if $\|x+x^{**}\|= 1+\Vert x\Vert $ for every $x\in X$. The aim of this paper is t...

We prove that if $M$ is an infinite complete metric space then the set of strongly norm-attaining Lipschitz functions $\SA(M)$ contains a linear subspace isomorphic to $c_0$. This solves an open question posed by V. Kadets and O. Rold\'an.

Let X be a Banach space and $$Y \subseteq X$$ Y ⊆ X be a closed subspace. We prove that if the quotient X / Y is weakly Lindelöf determined or weak Asplund, then for every $$w^*$$ w ∗ -convergent sequence $$(y_n^*)_{n\in \mathbb N}$$ ( y n ∗ ) n ∈ N in $$Y^*$$ Y ∗ there exist a subsequence $$(y_{n_k}^*)_{k\in \mathbb N}$$ ( y n k ∗ ) k ∈ N and a $$...

It follows from a theorem of Rosenthal that a compact space is ccc if and only if its every Eberlein continuous image is metrizable. Motivated by this result, for a class of compact spaces $${\mathcal {C}}$$ C we define its orthogonal $${\mathcal {C}}^\perp $$ C ⊥ as the class of all compact spaces for which every continuous image in $${\mathcal {C...

Motivated by the Lipschitz-lifting property of Banach spaces introduced by Godefroy and Kalton, we consider the lattice-lifting property, which is an analogous notion within the category of Banach lattices and lattice homomorphisms. Namely, a Banach lattice X satisfies the lattice-lifting property if every lattice homomorphism to X having a bounded...

The proof passes through a sequential version of being almost square which we call being sequentially almost square. In this article we study these conditions...

In this article we deal with the free Banach lattice generated by a lattice and its behavior with respect to subspaces. In general, any lattice embedding $i\colon \mathbb{L} \longrightarrow \mathbb{M}$ between two lattices $\mathbb{L} \subseteq \mathbb{M}$ induces a Banach lattice homomorphism $\hat \imath\colon FBL \langle \mathbb{L} \rangle \long...

In this article, we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of non-norm-attaining operators in $\mathcal {L}(E, F)$ . By using a theorem due to Pfitzner on James boundaries, we show that if there exists a relatively compact set K of $\mathcal {L}(E, F)$ (in the weak operator topology) such that $0$ is an element of its closure...

A pair of Banach spaces (E,F) is said to have the weak maximizing property (WMP, for short) if for every bounded linear operator T from E into F, the existence of a non-weakly null maximizing sequence for T implies that T attains its norm. This property was recently introduced in a paper by R. Aron, D. García, D. Pelegrino and E. Teixeira, raising...

A result of G. Godefroy asserts that a Banach space $X$ contains an isomorphic copy of $\ell_1$ if and only if there is an equivalent norm $|||\cdot|||$ such that, for every finite-dimensional subspace $Y$ of $X$ and every $\varepsilon>0$, there exists $x\in S_X$ so that $|||y+r x|||\geq (1-\varepsilon)(|||y|||+\vert r\vert)$ for every $y\in Y$ and...

It follows from a theorem of Rosenthal that a compact space is $ccc$ if and only if every Eberlein continuous image is metrizable. Motivated by this result, for a class of compact spaces $\mathcal{C}$ we define its orthogonal $\mathcal{C}^\perp$ as the class of all compact spaces for which every continuous image in $\mathcal{C}$ is metrizable.

In this article we deal with the free Banach lattice $FBL\langle \mathbb{L} \rangle$ generated by a lattice $\mathbb{L}$. We prove that if $FBL\langle \mathbb{L} \rangle$ is projective then $\mathbb{L}$ has a maximum and a minimum. On the other hand, we show that if $\mathbb{L}$ has maximum and minimum then $FBL\langle \mathbb{L} \rangle$ is $2$-la...

In this paper, we study octahedral norms in free Banach lattices FBL[E] generated by a Banach space E. We prove that if E is an L1(μ)-space, a predual of von Neumann algebra, a predual of a JBW∗-triple, the dual of an M-embedded Banach space, the disc algebra or the projective tensor product under some hypothesis, then the norm of FBL[E] is octahed...

Using the relation among lattice homomorphisms and disjoint families, we prove that the topological dual of the free Banach lattice $FBL(A)$ generated by a set $A$ contains a disjoint family of cardinality $2...

We show that if a Banach lattice is projective, then every bounded sequence that can be mapped by a homomorphism onto the basis of c0 must contain an ℓ1-subsequence. As a consequence, if Banach lattices ℓp or FBL[E] are projective, then p=1 or E has the Schur property, respectively. On the other hand, we show that C(K) is projective whenever K is a...

We show that \(c_0\) is not a projective Banach lattice, answering a question of B. de Pagter and A. Wickstead. .On the other hand, we show that \(c_0\) is complemented in the free Banach lattice generated by itself (seen as a Banach space). As a consequence, the free Banach lattice generated by \(c_0\) is not projective.

We study the class of Banach spaces X such that the locally convex space (X,μ(X,Y)) is complete for every norming and norm-closed subspace Y⊂X⁎, where μ(X,Y) denotes the Mackey topology on X associated to the dual pair 〈X,Y〉. Such Banach spaces are called fully Mackey complete. We show that fully Mackey completeness is implied by Efremov's property...

A metric space M is length when every two points have an approximate midpoint, while M has property (Z) when for every x,y∈M there exists z such that d(x,z)+d(z,y)−d(x,y) is arbitrarily smaller than d(x,z) and d(z,y). Answering a problem posed by García-Lirola, Procházka and Rueda Zoca, we prove that every complete metric space with property (Z) is...

A compact space is said to be weakly Radon-Nikod\'{y}m (WRN) if it can be weak*-embedded into the dual of a Banach space not containing $\ell_1$. We investigate WRN Boolean algebras, i.e. algebras whose Stone space is WRN compact. We show that the class of WRN algebras and the class of minimally generated algebras are incomparable. In particular, w...

We prove that the weak Lebesgue property is stable under $\ell_1$-sums and obtain new examples of B...
