Biseparating maps on generalized Lipschitz spaces. (English) Zbl 1194.46040

Let X,Y be complete metric spaces and E,F be Banach spaces. In the paper under review, the author considers spaces of functions from X into E (and from Y into F) determined by a generalized modulus of continuity. These spaces are called generalized Lipschitz spaces. This notion serves to unify the study of spaces of Lipschitz, little Lipschitz and uniformly continuous functions. The main purpose of this paper is to characterize all biseparating operators between generalized Lipschitz spaces. Two functions f and g defined on X with values in E are said to be disjoint if, for all xX, either f(x)=0 or g(x)=0. A map T between vector-valued function spaces is called separating if T maps disjoint functions to disjoint functions. It is biseparating if T is invertible and both T and T -1 are separating.

A generalized Lipschitz space of real-valued functions Lip Σ (X) is said to be Lipschitz normal if, for every pair of subsets U,V of X with d(U,V)>0, there exists fLip Σ (X), 0f1, such that f=0 on U and f=1 on V. A generalized Lipschitz space Lip Σ (X,E) of E-valued functions is called Lipschitz normal if Lip Σ (X) is.

The main result of the paper is Theorem 16, which goes as follows. Suppose that Lip Σ (X,E) and Lip Σ (Y,F) are generalized Lipschitz spaces which are Lipschitz normal. If T:Lip Σ (X,E)Lip Σ (Y,F) is a linear biseparating map, then there exists a homeomorphism h:XY and, for each yY, a vector space isomorphism S y :EF such that Tf(y)=S y (f(h -1 (y))) for all yY.

Also, the continuity properties of the family S y and of the operator T with respect to suitable topologies are studied. Note that the functions in generalized Lipschitz spaces (as well as the metric spaces X and Y) may be unbounded. The usual compactification procedures for the spaces X and Y are not required.
