# On the density of Banach spaces C(K) with the Grothendieck property

@article{Brech2006OnTD, title={On the density of Banach spaces C(K) with the Grothendieck property}, author={Christina Brech}, journal={arXiv: Functional Analysis}, year={2006}, volume={134}, pages={3653-3663} }

Using the method of forcing we prove that consistently there is a Banach space of continuous functions on a compact Hausdorff space with the Grothendieck property and with density less than the continuum. It follows that the classical result stating that "no nontrivial complemented subspace of a Grothendieck space C(K) is separable" cannot be strengthened by replacing "is separable" by "has density less than that of l ∞ ", without using an additional set-theoretic assumption. Such a…
