CARMA COLLOQUIUM Speaker: Prof John Giles, School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, The University of Newcastle Title: On a Weakly Uniformly Rotund Dual of a Banach Space Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 26th Jul 2012 Abstract: Hajek proved that a WUR Banach space is an Asplund space. This result suggests that the WUR property might have interesting consequences as a dual property. We show that (i) every Banach Space with separable second dual can be equivalently renormed to have WUR dual, (ii) under certain embedding conditions a Banach space with WUR dual is reflexive.
