Speaker: R. Smith

Title: Killing Gruenhage spaces in ZFC

Abstract: A topological space $X$ of cardinality at most the continuum is called Gruenhage if there is a countable sequence of open subsets $(U_n)$, such that given distinct $x, y \in X$, there exists $n$ such that either $x$ or $y$ is in $U_n$, but not both.

A space $X$ has a $G_\delta$-diagonal if its diagonal is a $G_\delta$ set in $X^2$ with the usual product topology.

Both notions concern the separation of distinct points in a controlled way, without using `too many' open sets. The classes of Gruenhage spaces and spaces having $G_\delta$-diagonals contain all metric spaces, together with some much wilder objects. Recently, the two classes have been shown to be relevant to Banach space geometry, but the relationship between them has been unclear.

In this talk, we present an example of a locally compact, Hausdorff, non-Gruenhage space having a $G_\delta$-diagonal. It improves upon a previous example of the speaker's, which relied on the continuum hypothesis.


There will also be an organisational meeting for the term's seminars.

Speaker: M. Daws (Leeds)
Title: Shift invariant preduals of $\ell^1$

Abstract: (Joint work with Richard Haydon, Thomas Schlumprecht and Stuart White)

The Banach space $\ell^1$ has many different preduals-- for example, if $K$ is a locally compact, Hausdorff space which is countable, then the dual of $C_0(K)$ is $\ell^1(K)$, which is isomorphic to $\ell^1$ through picking an enumeration of $K$. There are also more "exotic" preduals-- the recent solution to the Scalar-Compact problem, by Argyros and Haydon, is a Banach space with is an $\ell^1$ predual.

In this talk, I will take as my indexing set the integers, and so we have the bilateral shift operator. We shall investigate if there exist preduals of $\ell^1$ with the additional property of making the bilateral shift weak*-continuous. For example, if a predual of the form $C_0(K)$ does this, then K must carry the discrete topology, so really we just get the canonical predual $c_0$. However, we give an explicit construction of a different predual which does make the bilaterial shift weak*-continuous.

Time allowing, I will show how Banach algebraic tools become useful (indeed, my original motivation came from Banach algebra theory). Indeed, some sort of classification is possible, and a more abstract construction leads to a wealth of examples.
