We introduce the notions of approximate Connes-amenability and approximate
strong Connes-amenability for dual Banach algebras. Then we characterize these
two types of algebras in terms of approximate normal virtual diagonals and
approximate $\sigma WC-$virtual diagonals. We investigate these properties for
von Neumann algebras and measure algebras of locally compact groups. In
particular we show that a von Neumann algebra is approximately Connes-amenable
if and only if it has an approximate normal virtual diagonal. This is the
``approximate'' analog of the main result of Effros in [E. G. Effros,
Amenability and virtual diagonals for von Neumann algebras, J. Funct. Anal. 78
(1988), 137-153].
We show that in general the concepts of approximate Connes-ameanbility and
Connes-ameanbility are distinct, but for measure algebras these two concepts
coincide. Moreover cases where approximate Connes-amenability of $\A^{**}$
implies approximate Connes-amenability or approximate amenability of $\A$ are
also discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A new notion of injectivity is introduced. It is shown that approximate Connes-amenability and approximate injectivity are the same properties. As a consequence, approximate Connes-amenability of the direct sum of dual Banach algebras is discussed. A characterization is given for approximate Connes-amenability of dual Banach algebras in terms of the approximate splitting of certain short exact sequence.

    ABSTRACT: We introduce and study the notions of w∗ -approximate Connes amenability and pseudo-Connes amenability for dual Banach algebras. We prove that the dual Banach sequence algebra ℓ1 is not w∗ -approximately Connes amenable. We show that in general the concepts of pseudo-Connes amenability and Connes amenability are distinct. Moreover the relations between these new notions are also discussed.

    ABSTRACT: For a Banach algebra $ \mathcal{A} $, we introduce various approximate virtual diagonals such as approximate WAP-virtual diagonal and approximate virtual diagonal. For the enveloping dual Banach algebra $ F(\mathcal{A}) $ of $ \mathcal{A} $, we show that $ F(\mathcal{A}) $ is approximately Connes-amenable if and only if $ \mathcal{A} $ has an approximate WAP-virtual diagonal. Further, for a discrete group $ G $, we show that if the group algebra $ \ell^1(G) $ has an approximate WAP-virtual diagonal, then it has an approximate virtual diagonal.
