Abstract: A continuous linear operator $ T:X\to X $ is hypercyclic if there is an $ x\in X$ such that the orbit $ \{ T^n x\}_{n\geq 0}$ is dense. A result of H. Salas shows that any infinite-dimensional separable Hilbert space admits a hypercyclic operator whose adjoint is also hypercyclic. It is a natural question to ask for what other spaces $ X$ does $ \mathcal{L}(X)$ contain such an operator. We prove that for any infinite-dimensional Banach space $ X$ with a shrinking symmetric basis, such as $ c_0$ and any $ \ell_p$ $ (1<p<\infty)$, there is an operator $ T:X \to X$, where both $ T$ and $ T':X'\to X'$ are hypercyclic.
