Uniqueness of structure in Banach spaces. (English) Zbl 1058.46006
Johnson, W. B. (ed.) et al., Handbook of the geometry of Banach spaces. Volume 2. Amsterdam: North-Holland (ISBN 0-444-51305-1/hbk). 1635-1669 (2003).
In this article, the author presents a detailed overview of the study of uniqueness of various types of bases and function structure of Banach spaces. The paper includes the following sections: 1. Uniqueness of general and unconditional bases; 2. Uniqueness of symmetric bases; 3. Uniqueness of unconditional bases, up to a permutation; 4. Uniqueness in finite-dimensional spaces; 5. Uniqueness of rearrangement invariant structures; 6. Uniqueness of bases in non-Banach spaces. The paper includes an extensive list of references. It is very well written, by one of the major contributors to the subject, and can serve both as an excellent introduction to the field and as a reference on all important developments up to date.
