A non-reflexive Grothendieck space that does not containl

  • Richard Haydon


A compact spaceS is constructed such that, in the dual Banach spaceC(S)*, every weak* convergent sequence is weakly convergent, whileC(S) does not have a subspace isomorphic tol . The construction introduces a weak version of completeness for Boolean algebras, here called the Subsequential Completeness Property. A related construction leads to a counterexample to a conjecture about holomorphic functions on Banach spaces. A compact spaceT is constructed such thatC(T) does not containl but does have a “bounding” subset that is not relatively compact. The first of the examples was presented at the International Conference on Banach spaces, Kent, Ohio, 1979.
