Abstract: For a $ C^{\ast}$-algebra $ A$ and $ u\epsilon A$, the equivalence of the following three statements is proved: (i) the map $ x \mapsto uxu$ is a compact operator on $ A$, (ii) (resp. (iii)) the map $ x \mapsto ux$ (resp. $ x \mapsto xu$) is a weakly compact operator on $ A$. The canonical image of a dual $ {C^{\ast}}$-algebra $ A$ in its bidual $ {A^{{\ast}{\ast}}}$ is characterized as the set of the weakly completely continuous elements of $ {A^{{\ast}{\ast}}}$.
