Completely rank-nonincreasing linear maps Academic Article uri icon


  • We give purely algebraic characterizations of the maps that are approximate compressions or skew-compressions of a unital representation of a C*-algebra. The key techniques used also relate to closures of joint similarity orbits of matrices and elementary maps on B(H). 2003 Elsevier Science (USA). All rights reserved.
