The Cohen Factorizaton Theorem

Date Thursday, February 14, 2019

If A is a Banach algebra and X is a Banach A-bimodule, then the existence of a "bounded approximate identity" in A for X is extremely valuable. In this presentation, I will give a summary of a proof of a version of the Cohen Factorization theorem for Banach A-bimodules X with a left or right bounded approximate identity in A for X.
