Strong unicity criterion in some space of operators. (English) Zbl 0785.41023

Summary: Let \(X\) be a finite-dimensional Banach space and let \(Y\subset X\) be a hyperplane. Let \({\mathcal L}_ Y= \{L\in {\mathcal L}(X,Y)\): \(L|_ Y=0\}\). In this note, we present sufficient and necessary conditions on \(L_ 0\in {\mathcal L}_ Y\) being a strongly unique best approximation for given \(L\in {\mathcal L}(X)\). Next, we apply this characterization to the case of \(X=\ell_ \infty^ n\) and to generalization of Theorem I.1.3 from Wl. Odyniec and G. Lewicki [Minimal projections in Banach spaces, Lect. Notes Math. 1449 (1990)].
