Abstract:

It is established by an example that the natural quotient norms $S \mapsto\mathrm{dist}(S,W(E,F))$ and $S \mapsto\mathrm{dist}(S^{*},W(F^{*},E^{*}))$ are not comparable in general. Hence there is no uniform quantitative version of Gantmacher's duality theorem for weakly compact operators in terms of the preceding weak essential norm. Above $W(E,F)$ stands for the class of weakly compact operators $E\to F$, where $E$ and $F$ are Banach spaces. The counterexample is based on a renorming construction related to weakly compact approximation properties that is applied to the Johnson-Lindenstrauss space $JL$.
