It is k nown that $K(X)>1$ for every infinite-dimensional space $X$ (the Elton–O dell theorem). I will present certain estimates related to interpolation s paces\, twisted sums\, and other classes of Banach spaces $X$ concerning t he isomorphic Kottman constant\, defined as the infimum of $K(Y)$\, where $Y$ ranges over all renormings of $X$. \nI will also comment on other rela ted constants (such as the disjoint one defined for Banach lattices) and t heir symmetric analogs.\n\n\n\nThis talk is based on papers with J.

In particular\, we will describe the construction of a Schauder basis fo r $L_2(\\mathbb R)$ consisting of only non-negative functions. We will con clude with a discussion of some related open problems. \n\nThis is joint w ork with Alex Powell and Mitchell Taylor.\n LOCATION: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Chris Gartland (UIUC) DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20200508T140000Z DTEND;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20200508T150000Z DTSTAMP;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20210225T134926Z UID:BanachWebinars/5 DESCRIPTION:Title: Lipschitz free spaces over locally compact metric spaces\nby Ch ris Gartland (UIUC) as part of Banach spaces webinars\n\n\nAbstract\nThe t alk is generally about questions of local-to-global phenomena in metric an d Banach space theory. There are two motivating questions: Let X be a comp lete\, locally compact metric space. (1) If every compact subset of X biLi pschitz embeds into a Banach space with the Radon-Nikodym property\, is th e same true of X? (2) If the Lipschitz free space over K has the Radon-Nik odym property for every compact subset K of X\, is the same true for the L ipschitz free space over X? We will first overview the theory of non-biLip schitz embeddability of metric spaces into Banach spaces with the Radon-Ni kodym property\, and then discuss an idea developed in an attempt to answe r (2). We will show how this idea may be used to answer modified versions of (2) when the Radon-Nikodym property is replaced by the Schur or approxi mation property.\n LOCATION: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Gideon Schechtman (Weizmann Institute of Science) DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20200515T140000Z DTEND;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20200515T150000Z DTSTAMP;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20210225T134926Z UID:BanachWebinars/6 DESCRIPTION:Title: The number of closed ideals in $L(L_p)$\nby Gideon Schechtman ( Weizmann Institute of Science) as part of Banach spaces webinars\n\n\nAbst ract\nI intend to review what is known about the closed ideals in the Bana ch algebras $L(L_p(0\,1))$. Then concentrate on a recent result of Bill Johnson and myself showing that for $1\\lt p\\not= 2\\lt \\infty$ there are exactly $2^{2^{\\aleph_0} }$ different closed ideals in $L(L_p(0\,1))$.\n LOCATION: END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Miguel Martin (University of Granada) DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20200529T140000Z DTEND;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20200529T150000Z DTSTAMP;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20210225T134926Z UID:BanachWebinars/7 DESCRIPTION:Title: On Quasi norm attaining operators between Banach spaces\nby Mig uel Martin (University of Granada) as part of Banach spaces webinars\n\n\n Abstract\nThis talk deals with a very recently introduced weakened notion of norm attainment for bounded linear operators.
