Abstract: Let $ A$ be a Banach algebra, $ X$ a closed subspace of $ A^*$, $ Y$ a dual Banach space with predual $ Y_*$, and $ \pi $ a continuous representation of $ A$ on $ Y$. We call $ \pi $ subordinate to $ X$ if each coordinate function $ \pi _{y,\lambda }\in X$, for all $ y\in Y, \lambda \in Y_*$. If $ X$ is topologically left (right) introverted and $ Y$ is reflexive, we show the existence of a natural bijection between continuous representations of $ A$ on $ Y$ subordinate to $ X$, and normal representations of $ X^*$ on $ Y$. We show that if $ A$ has a bounded approximate identity, then every weakly almost periodic functional on $ A$ is a coordinate function of a continuous representation of $ A$ subordinate to $ WAP(A)$. We show that a function $ f$ on a locally compact group $ G$ is left uniformly continuous if and only if it is the coordinate function of the conjugate representation of $ L^1(G)$, associated to some unitary representation of $ G$. We generalize the latter result to an arbitrary Banach algebra with bounded right approximate identity. We prove the functionals in $ LUC(A)$ are all coordinate functions of some norm continuous representation of $ A$ on a dual Banach space.
