### Is every ideal part of an operator ideal?

An operator ideal $\mathfrak J$ is a class of continuous operators. Namely, for every pair of complex Banach spaces, $\mathfrak X,\mathfrak Y$, we have that $\mathfrak J(\mathfrak X,\mathfrak Y) ...

### Noncommutative analogs of classical Banach geometric properties

The scale of Schatten-von Neumann classes is noncommutatitve analog of classical $\ell_p$-spaces. A lot of researchers devoted their lives to study Banach geometric structure of these spaces. ...

### Two-sided ideals of $B(H)$ are hereditary

I seem to recall that (not necessarily closed) two-sided ideals of $B(H)$ are hereditary. Is that true?
If it is, can anyone post a proof/reference?

### Second duals of Grothendieck spaces

The classical example of a Grothendieck space is $\ell_\infty$. It is also known that its even duals $\ell_\infty^{**}$, $\ell_\infty^{(4)}$, $\dots$ are Grothendieck spaces.
(See, e.g., this note ...

### Are these ideals in rings of operators on Hilbert space unique?

Suppose that, for every Hilbert space $H$, we have a subset $I(H) \subseteq B(H)$ of bounded linear operators on $H$, and that together all $I(H)$ form a two-sided ideal, in the sense that whenever $h ...

### Factorization through $\ell_{1}$ and operator ideals

Recently, I bumped into the class of operators that factor through $\ell_{1}(X)$ for some set $X$. For now, $X$ is a set with arbitrary cardinality but if it leads to a more concrete answer to my ...
