S.A. Argyros, S. Mercourakis A note on the structure of WUR Banach spaces

Comment.Math.Univ.Carolinae 46,3 (2005) 399-408.

Abstract:We present an example of a Banach space $E$ admitting an equivalent weakly uniformly rotund norm and such that there is no $\Phi :E\to c_0(\Gamma )$, for any set $\Gamma$, linear, one-to-one and bounded. This answers a problem posed by Fabian, Godefroy, H\'ajek and Zizler. The space $E$ is actually the dual space $Y^*$ of a space $Y$ which is a subspace of a WCG space.

Keywords: WCG Banach space, weakly uniformly rotund norms, tree
