Operators on Bourgain–Delbaen spaces
We prove that, for a suitable choice of real numbers $a, b$, every operator from $\ell_2$ to $X_{a,b}$ and from $X_{a,b}$ to $\ell_2$ must be compact, where $X_{a,b}$ is the Bourgain- Delbaen's space.

Strictly singular non-compact operators on hereditarily indecomposable Banach spaces
An example is given of a strictly singular non-compact operator on a Hereditarily Indecomposable, reflexive, asymptotic l 1 Banach space. The construction of this operator relies on the existence ofExpand
Quotient Hereditarily Indecomposable Banach Spaces

A Remark about the Scalar-Plus-Compact Problem
In [GM] a Banach space X was constructed such that every operator from a subspace Y ⊂ X into the space is of the form λIY→X +S, where IY→X is the inclusion map and S is strictly singular. In thisExpand
