Disappearance of extreme points. (English) Zbl 0541.46013
An extreme point in the unit ball of a Banach space is called preserved if it is extreme in the unit ball of the second dual. It is asked by R. R. Phelps [Proc. Am. Math. Soc. 12, 291-296 (1961; Zbl 0099.316)] if there were any nonpreserved extreme points at all. It is shown by Katznelson that there is a nonpreserved extreme point in the disk algebra. In this note the author has shown the following theorem:
Let E be a separable Banach space containing an isomorphic copy of \(c_ 0\). Then E is isomorphic to a strictly convex space F such that no extreme point of F is preserved.
