Abstract

We study the Bishop–Phelps–Bollobás property for numerical radius restricted to the case of compact operators (BPBp-nu for compact operators in short). We show that \(C_0(L)\) spaces have the BPBp-nu for compact operators for every Hausdorff topological locally compact space L. To this end, on the one hand, we provide some techniques allowing to pass the BPBp-nu for compact operators from subspaces to the whole space and, on the other hand, we prove some strong approximation property of \(C_0(L)\) spaces and their duals. Besides, we also show that real Hilbert spaces and isometric preduals of \(\ell _1\) have the BPBp-nu for compact operators.

Abstract. We study the Bishop–Phelps–Bollob´as property for numerical
radius restricted to the case of compact operators (BPBp-nu for com-
pact operators in short). We show that C0(L) spaces have the BPBp-nu
for compact operators for every Hausdorff topological locally compact
space L. To this end, on the one hand, we provide some techniques allow-
ing to pass the BPBp-nu for compact operators from subspaces to the
whole space and, on the other hand, we prove some strong approxima-
tion property of C0(L) spaces and their duals. Besides, we also show that
real Hilbert spaces and isometric preduals of 1have the BPBp-nu for
compact operators.

In this paper, we study conditions assuring that the Bishop–Phelps–Bollobás property (BPBp, for short) is inherited by absolute summands of the range space or of the domain space. Concretely, given a pair (X, Y) of Banach spaces having the BPBp, (a) if \(Y_1\) is an absolute summand of Y, then \((X,Y_1)\) has the BPBp; (b) if \(X_1\) is an absolute summand of X of type 1 or \(\infty \), then \((X_1,Y)\) has the BPBp. Besides, analogous results for the BPBp for compact operators and for the density of norm-attaining operators are also given. We also show that the Bishop–Phelps–Bollobás property for numerical radius is inherited by absolute summands of type 1 or \(\infty \). Moreover, we provide analogous results for numerical radius attaining operators and for the BPBp for numerical radius for compact operators.

We study the Bishop-Phelps-Bollob\'as property (BPBp for short) for compact operators. We present some abstract techniques which allows to carry the BPBp for compact operators from sequence spaces to function spaces. As main applications, we prove the following results. Let $X$, $Y$ be Banach spaces. If $(c_0,Y)$ has the BPBp for compact operators, then so do $(C_0(L),Y)$ for every locally compact Hausdorff topological space $L$ and $(X,Y)$ whenever $X^*$ is isometrically isomorphic to $\ell_1$. If $X^*$ has the Radon-Nikod\'ym property and $(\ell_1(X),Y)$ has the BPBp for compact operators, then so does $(L_1(\mu,X),Y)$ for every positive measure $\mu$; as a consequence, $(L_1(\mu,X),Y)$ has the the BPBp for compact operators when $X$ and $Y$ are finite-dimensional or $Y$ is a Hilbert space and $X=c_0$ or $X=L_p(\nu)$ for any positive measure $\nu$ and $1< p< \infty$. For $1\leqslant p <\infty$, if $(X,\ell_p(Y))$ has the BPBp for compact operators, then so does $(X,L_p(\mu,Y))$ for every positive measure $\mu$ such that $L_1(\mu)$ is infinite-dimensional. If $(X,Y)$ has the BPBp for compact operators, then so do $(X,L_\infty(\mu,Y))$ for every $\sigma$-finite positive measure $\mu$ and $(X,C(K,Y))$ for every compact Hausdorff topological space $K$.

We introduce a second numerical index for real Banach spaces with non-trivial Lie algebra, as the best constant of equivalence between the numerical radius and the quotient of the operator norm modulo the Lie algebra. We present a number of examples and results concerning absolute sums, duality, vector-valued function spaces\ldots which show that, in many cases, the behaviour of this second numerical index differs from the one of the classical numerical index. As main results, we prove that Hilbert spaces have second numerical index one and that they are the only spaces with this property among the class of Banach spaces with one-unconditional basis and non-trivial Lie algebra. Besides, an application to the Bishop-Phelps-Bollob\'as property for numerical radius is given.

It has been very recently discovered that there are compact linear operators between Banach spaces which cannot be approximated by norm attaining operators. The aim of this expository paper is to give an overview of those examples and also of sufficient conditions ensuring that compact linear operators can be approximated by norm attaining operators. To do so, we introduce the analogues for compact operators of Lindenstrauss properties A and B.

We study the rank-1 numerical index of a Banach space, namely the infimum of the numerical radii of those rank-1 operators on the space which have norm 1. We show that the rank-1 numerical index is always greater than or equal to 1/e. We also present properties of this index and some examples.

In this paper, we introduce the notion of the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás property for numerical radius (BPBp-ν) for a subclass of the space of bounded linear operators. Then, we show that certain subspaces of L(L1(μ)) have the BPBp-ν for every finite measure μ. As a consequence we deduce that the subspaces of finite-rank operators, compact operators and weakly compact operators on L1(μ) have the BPBp-ν.

We provide a version for operators of the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás theorem when the domain space is the complex space C0(L). In fact, we prove that the pair (C0(L); Y ) will satisfy the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás property for operators for every Hausdorff locally compact space L and any C-uniformly convex space. As a consequence, this holds for Y = Lp(μ) (1 ≤ p < ∞).

We study a Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás version of Lindenstrauss properties A and B. For domain spaces, we study Banach spaces X such that (X, Y) has the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás property (BPBp) for every Banach space Y . We show that in this case, there exists a universal function ηX(ε) such that for every Y , the pair (X, Y) has the BPBp with this function. This allows us to prove some necessary isometric conditions for X to have the property. We also prove that if X has this property in every equivalent norm, then X is one-dimensional. For range spaces, we study Banach spaces Y such that (X, Y) has the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás property for every Banach space X. In this case, we show that there is a universal function ηY (ε) such that for every X, the pair (X, Y) has the BPBp with this function. This implies that this property of Y is strictly stronger than Lindenstrauss property B. The main tool to get these results is the study of the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás property for c0-, ℓ1- and ℓ∞-sums of Banach spaces.
