# A hereditarily indecomposable $ {\mathcal{L}_{\infty}} $-space that solves the scalar-plus-compact problem

@article{Argyros2011AHI, title={A hereditarily indecomposable \$ \{\mathcal\{L\}\_\{\infty\}\} \$-space that solves the scalar-plus-compact problem}, author={Spiros A. Argyros and Richard Haydon}, journal={Acta Mathematica}, year={2011}, volume={206}, pages={1-54} }

We construct a hereditarily indecomposable Banach space with dual space isomorphic to ℓ1. Every bounded linear operator on this space is expressible as λI + K, with λ a scalar and K compact.
