Factoring compact operators Academic Article uri icon


  • We consider the following problem: Does there exist a separable Banach space Z such that every compact operator can be factored as a product TS with T, S compact, range S=Domain T=Z? Our investigation yields a reasonable partial solution to this problem as well as the following independent result: A Banach space which has the -metric approximation property can be embedded as a complemented subspace of a space. 1971 Hebrew University.
