Phillips’ lemma for L-embedded Banach spaces

  • Hermann PfitznerEmail author


In this note the following version of Phillips’ lemma is proved. The L-projection of an L-embedded space—that is of a Banach space which is complemented in its bidual such that the norm between the two complementary subspaces is additive—is weak*-weakly sequentially continuous.
