Abstract: Let $a,c\geq 0$ and let $B$ be a compact set of scalars. We introduce property $M^{\ast }(a,B,c)$ of Banach spaces $X$ by the requirement that \begin{equation*}\limsup _{\nu }\Vert ax_{\nu }^{\ast } +bx^{\ast }+cy^{\ast }\V... ...q \limsup _{\nu }\Vert x_{\nu }^{\ast }\Vert\quad \forall b\in B \end{equation*}whenever $(x_{\nu }^{\ast })$ is a bounded net converging weak$^{\ast }$ to $x^{\ast }$ in $X^{\ast }$ and $\Vert y^{\ast }\Vert\leq \Vert x^{\ast }\Vert$. Using $M^{\ast }(a,B,c)$ with $\max \vert B\vert+c>1$, we characterize the existence of certain shrinking approximations of the identity (in particular, those related to $M$-, $u$-, and $h$-ideals of compact or approximable operators). We also show that the existence of these approximations of the identity is separably determined.
