Reference request: Gaussian measures on duals of nuclear spaces

I am interested in constructive quantum field theory where Gaussian measures on duals of nuclear spaces (specifically, the space of tempered distribution $\mathcal{S}'(\mathbb{R}^n)$) play a key role. ...

Nuclear spaces and intuition behind their topology

In functional analysis the nuclear spaces (coined by Grothendieck before he became involved in revolutionizing algebraic geometry) can be considered as a kind of generalization of finite dimensional ...

"Weakly" nuclear operators (terminology)

Recently, I'd come across the following kind of operators and I wonder if they have been considered before and given a name. Let's say that a linear map $T:V\to W$ between locally convex topological ...

If $F$ is a countably normed, nuclear Fréchet space, can I then find a fundamental system which exhibits both of these properties at once?

Let $F$ a Fréchet space. This means that $F$ is a complete Hausdorff topological space whose topology can be generated by an increasing family of seminorms $\{ p_{n} \}_{n \in \mathbb{N}}$. Let's ...

Are nuclear spaces used in creating variant theories of distributions?

Laurent Schwartz proved his Kernel Theorem in 1952  to justify extending his theory of distributions to several variables. Then he and Jean Dieudonne gave Alexander Grothendieck the assignment to ...

A non nuclear $C^*$ algebra $A$ for which the algebraic tensor product $A\otimes A$ admits a unique $C^*$ norm

Is there a non nuclear $C^*$ algebra $A$ for which the minimum and maximum $C^*$ norms on $A\otimes A$ coincide? A somewhat similar question is discussed here.

multiplier algebra of a simple $C^*$ algebra

If $A=K(H)$, where $H$ is an infinite dimensional separable Hilbert space, then $A$ is simple and nuclear, and the multiplier algebra $M(A)$ of $A$ is not nuclear. My question is: can we find a non-...

Nuclear operators and their eigenvalues

I know that if an operator (on a Banach space with approximation property) is nuclear of order zero, then its eigenvalues are $p$-summable for any $p>0$. (I read it from Grothendieck’s book “...
