### 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 ...

### 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-...
