We prove that for every bounded linear operator T : X → X, where X is a non-reflexive quotient of a von Neumann algebra, the point spectrum of T * is non-empty (i.e. for some λ ∈ C the operator λI − T fails to have dense range.) In particular, and as an application, we obtain that such a space cannot support a topologically transitive operator.
We consider ideals I of subsets of the set of natural numbers N such that for every conditionally convergent series of real numbers ∑ n∈N a n and s ∈ R, then there is a sequence of signs δ = (δ n) n∈N such that ∑ n∈N δ n a n = s and N(δ) := {n ∈ N : δ n = −1} ∈ I. We give some properties of such ideals and characterize them in terms of extendability to a(More)
