Terminology: jointly completely bounded?

This question has a subjective component but I would like answers that try to stick to concrete observable facts, such as which papers use which terminology. However, the informed impressions of those ...

weak convergence in operator space structure

Let $M$ be von Neumann algebra and $B(H)$ be it's universal representation. Let $(e_i)$ be a Hilbert basis of $H$ and $\zeta_n\xrightarrow{w}\zeta $ in $H$. I know that $[w_{\zeta_n ,e_i}]_{1\times I}\...

“Identity tensor transpose” as a map $M_n \hat{\otimes} M_n \to M_n \overline{\otimes} M_n$

Equipping $M_n$ with its usual operator space structure, $\newcommand{\ptp}{\widehat{\otimes}}$ we can form the projective tensor product of operator spaces $M_n\ptp M_n$. In particular this puts a ...

Operator space structures on CB(H,K) where H and K are Hilbertian operator spaces?

(I'd be grateful if anyone thinking of putting MathJax in the question title refrains from doing so.) By consulting various standard sources (Effros-Ruan's book, Pisier's book, the lexicon of ...

$p$-operator space structure on Banach algebras

There is an abstract characterization of operator algebras, which says that if $A$ is an operator space that is also an approximately unital Banach algebra, then the following are equivalent: For ...

Why are the convolvers in the bicommutant of the pseudo-measures? ($CV_p(G)\subseteq PM_p(G)''$)

Let $G$ be a locally compact group. For $1<p<\infty$ let $\lambda_p:G\to\mathcal{B}(L^p(G))$ (resp. $\rho_p:G\to\mathcal{B}(L^p(G))$) be the left (resp. right) regular representation. $CV_p(G)$ ...

Interpolation of the row and column operator spaces

If $R$ and $C$ are respectively the row and column operator spaces, and $\theta \in (0, 1)$, we denote by $R(\theta)$ the interpolation operator space $(R, C)_{\theta}$ (with $R(0) = R$ and $R(1) = C$)...

Approximation in the tensor square of a weakly exact von Neumann algebra

Background. I think I can prove something about a certain construction definition for Fourier algebras of discrete groups, under the assumption that the group is exact (well, really I use Yu's ...

Can a non-commutative C*-algebra be a minimal operator space?

By an operator space structure on a Banach space $X$ I mean a sequence of norms on spaces $M_n \otimes X$ that satisfies Ruan's axioms. Among such admissible sequences there is always the smallest ...

Isometries between Hilbertian homogeneous finite dimensional operator spaces

We know that if $i:R_n\rightarrow C_n$ is an isometry then for any $n$-dimensional operator space E, there is a factorization $i=uv$ with $v:R_n\rightarrow E$, $u:E\rightarrow C_n$ such that $\|u\|_{...

Containment of an element to an operator system

This question will probably appeal to people in operator systems theory as it is very much related. However, I'm interested in down-to-earth concrete systems with finite dimensional Hilbert space ...

Ordering of completely bounded maps

Let A be a C*-algebra, let H be a Hilbert space, and let $T:A\rightarrow B(H)$ be a completely bounded (cb) map (that is, the dilations to maps $M_n(A)\rightarrow M_n(B(H))$ are uniformly bounded). ...
