### Predual to Lipschitz Maps with $p$ Derivatives

Let $p\in \mathbb{N}$, and define $Lip(p)$ be the collection of functions from $\mathbb{R}^d$ to itself, with $p-1$ first derivatives bounded and whose $p^{th}$ derivative is Lipschitz. This can be ...

### Examples of isomorphic W* algebra with non-homeomorphic weak topology

Due to the uniqueness of the predual, a W* algebra, when realized as a von Neumann algebra in any way, always has a unique, well-defined ultraweak (or $\sigma$-weak) topology. The same can be said ...

### On the relation between Lipschitz free-spaces

Let $X$ be a pointed metric space, with base point 0. The space of Lipschitz function which preserves the base point,
$Lip_0(X)=\{f:X\to\mathbb{R} : f(0)=0\}$ consider with the norm $\|f(x)\|=\sup_{x\...

### The topological duals of spaces of finite measures

In volume 1 of "Linear Operators", Dunford and Schwartz say that (footnote F1, page 374)
"No completely satisfactory representation for the conjugate space of $ba(S, \Sigma)$, $ca(S, \Sigma)$ or $...

### Lipschitz-free spaces of $\mathbb R^n$

We define
$$
\text{Lip}_0(\mathbb R^n)=\{f:\mathbb R^n\rightarrow \mathbb R, \text{such that $f(0)=0$ and }
\sup_{x\not=y}\frac{\vert f(x)-f(y)\vert}{\vert x-y\vert}<+\infty.
\}
$$
It is well-known ...

### Predual of a subspace

Let $E$ be a Banach space, let $d\ge 1$ be an integer. Let $\mathcal G$ be a weakly closed subspace of
$(E^*)^d$ with finite codimension.
I would like know if the space $\mathcal G$ is a dual space $\...

### Predual of a Direct Sum of Banach Spaces

This may be basic, and if it is I apologize, but I have found no references to it in literature. I would appreciate a reference at least if I am wrong. I have supplied background for those interested, ...

### Uniqueness up to isometric isomorphism of predual of $(\sum_{\lambda\in\Lambda} H_\lambda)_{l_\infty}$ where $H_\lambda$ are Hilbert spaces

This fact is an easy consequence of results of the paper by Leon Brown and Takashi Ito, but it looks like an overkill. Does anyone know a simpler proof?

### Complexifying a real Banach space and its dual

A standard way to define the "complexification" $E_\mathbb{C}$ of a real Banach space $E$ is to define a complex linear structure on $E\times E$ by (1) $(x,y)+(u,v)=(x+u, y+v)$, (2) $(a+ib)(x,y)=(ax-...

### Unambiguous “weak” vector valued $L^{+\infty}$ spaces?

For some time, I have been stuck to the problem to be described as follows. The (perhaps not so commonly known) facts given here are taken from R. E. Edwards' Functional Analysis (Holt, Rinehart and ...

### Must a surjective isometry on a dual space have a pre-adjoint?

Background: Let $X$ be a Banach space. We know a linear map $h$ is a surjective isometry of $X$ if and only if its adjoint $h^*$ is a surjective isometry of $X^*$.
In general, a linear map $g:X^* \...

### Isomorphisms of Banach Spaces

Suppose $X$ and $Y$ are Banach spaces whose dual spaces are isometrically isomorphic. It is certainly true that $X$ and $Y$ need not be isometrically isomorphic, but must it be true that there is a ...
