# Trends in Banach Spaces and Operator Theory

Share this page *Edited by *
*Anna Kamińska*

This volume contains proceedings of the conference on Trends in Banach Spaces
and Operator Theory, which was devoted to recent advances in theories of Banach
spaces and linear operators.

Included in the volume are 25 papers, some of which are expository, while
others present new results. The articles address the following topics: history
of the famous James' theorem on reflexivity, projective tensor products,
construction of noncommutative \(L_p\)-spaces via interpolation, Banach
spaces with abundance of nontrivial operators, Banach spaces with small spaces
of operators, convex geometry of Coxeter-invariant polyhedra, uniqueness of
unconditional bases in quasi-Banach spaces, dynamics of cohyponormal operators,
and Fourier algebras for locally compact groupoids.

The book is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians
interested in Banach spaces and operator theory and their applications.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in Banach spaces and operator theory and their applications.
