A NOTE ON M-IDEALS OF COMPACT OPERATORS

• Published : 1998.11.01

Abstract

Suppose X is a subspace of $(\sum_{n=1} ^{\infty} X_n)_{c_0}$, dim $X_n<{\infty}$, which has the metric compact approximation property. It is proved that if Y is a Banach space of cotype q for some $2{\leq}1<{\infty}$ then K(X,Y) is an M-ideal in L(X,Y).
