A characterization of reflexive spaces of operators



We show that for a linear space of operators MB(H1, H2) the following assertions are equivalent. (i) M is reflexive in the sense of Loginov-Shulman. (ii) There exists an order-preserving map Ψ = (ψ1, ψ2) on a bilattice Bil(M) of subspaces determined by M with P ≤ ψ1(P,Q) and Q ≤ ψ2(P,Q) for any pair (P,Q) ∈ Bil(M), and such that an operator TB(H1, H2) lies in M if and only if ψ2(P,Q)Tψ1(P,Q) = 0 for all (P,Q) ∈ Bil(M). This extends the Erdos-Power type characterization of weakly closed bimodules over a nest algebra to reflexive spaces.
