Similarity problems and completely bounded maps by
Gilles Pisier(
Book
)
53 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These notes revolve around three similarity problems, appearing in three different contexts, but all dealing with the space B(H) of all bounded operators on a complex Hilbert space H. The first one deals with group representations, the second one with C* algebras and the third one with the disc algebra. We describe them in detail in the introduction which follows. This volume is devoted to the background necessary to understand these three problems, to the solutions that are known in some special cases and to numerous related concepts, results, counterexamples or extensions which their investigation has generated. While the three problems seem different, it is possible to place them in a common framework using the key concept of "complete boundedness", which we present in detail. Using this notion, the three problems can all be formulated as asking whether "boundedness" implies "complete boundedness" for linear maps satisfying certain additional algebraic identities. Two chapters have been added on the HALMOS and KADISON similarity problems

The volume of convex bodies and Banach space geometry by
Gilles Pisier(
Book
)
22 editions published between 1989 and 1999 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book aims to give a selfcontained presentation of a number of results, which relate the volume of convex bodies in ndimensional Euclidean space and the geometry of the corresponding finitedimensional normed spaces. The methods employ classical ideas from the theory of convex sets, probability theory, approximation theory and the local theory of Banach spaces. The book is in two parts. The first presents selfcontained proofs of the quotient of the subspace theorem, the inverse Santalo inequality and the inverse BrunnMinkowski inequality. The second part gives a detailed exposition of the recently introduced classes of Banach spaces of weak cotype 2 or weak type 2, and the intersection of the classes (weak Hilbert space). The book is based on courses given in Paris and in Texas

Introduction to operator space theory by
Gilles Pisier(
Book
)
18 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theory of operator spaces is very recent and can be described as a noncommutative Banach space theory. An 'operator space' is simply a Banach space with an embedding into the space B(H) of all bounded operators on a Hilbert space H. The first part of this book is an introduction with emphasis on examples that illustrate various aspects of the theory. The second part is devoted to applications to C*algebras, with a systematic exposition of tensor products of C* algebras. The third (and shorter) part of the book describes applications to non selfadjoint operator algebras, and similarity problems. In particular the author's counterexample to the 'Halmos problem' is presented, as well as work on the new concept of "length" of an operator algebra. Graduate students and professional mathematicians interested in functional analysis, operator algebras and theoretical physics will find that this book has much to offer
