# Lipschitz-free Banach spaces

We show that when a linear quotient map to a separable Banach space X has a Lipschitz right inverse, then it has a linear right inverse. If a separable space X embeds isometrically into a Banach space Y , then Y contains an isometric linear copy of X. This is false for every nonseparable weakly compactly generated Banach space X. Canonical examples of nonseparable Banach spaces which are Lipschitz isomorphic but not linearly isomorphic are constructed. If a Banach space X has the bounded…

Mazur-Ulam’s classical theorem states that any isometric onto map between normed spaces is linear. This result has been generalized by T. Figiel [F] who showed that ifΦ is an isometric embedding from…

Given a category of objects, it is both useful and important to know if all the objects in the category may be realised as sub-objects -- via morphisms in the given category -- of a single object in…

A Banach space is, by its nature, also a metric space. When we identify a Banach space with its underlying metric space, we choose to forget its linear structure. The fundamental question of…
