[more ▼] In this paper, we prove that if U is an increasing sequence of strictly positive and continuous functions on a locally compact Hausdorff space X such that VBAR congruent-to VBAR and C(X), then the Frechet space CU(X) is distinguished if and only if it satisfies Heinrich's density condition, or equivalently, if and only if the sequence U satisfies condition (H) (cf. e.g.`[1] for the introduction of (H)). As a consequence, the bidual lambda(infinity)(A) of the distinguished Kothe echelon space lambda-0(A) is distinguished if and only if the space lambda-1(A) is distinguished. This gives counterexamples to a problem of Grothendieck in the context of Kothe echelon spaces. [less ▲] Detailed reference viewed: 21 (1 ULg) |
