Nonexpansive projections onto two-dimensional subspaces of Banach spaces. (English) Zbl 0634.46013
Let X be a Banach space and
(*) S a set of linearly independent smooth points in X such that every two-dimensional subspace intersecting S is the range of a nonexpansive projection.
If dim \(X=n\geq 3\) and \(card(S)=n-1\), then X is isometrically isomorphic to some \(\ell^ p(n)\) \((1<p\leq \infty)\). If dim \(X\geq 3\) and \(\overline{sp} S=X\), then either
(a) X is isometrically isomorphic to \(c_ 0(S)\) or some \(\ell^ p(S)\) with \(p\neq 2\) in such a way that each element of S corresponds to an element of the canonical basis or
(b) E is isometrically isomorphic to a Hilbert space.
A real Banach space X of dimension at least 3 is a Hilbert space iff there is S satisfying (*) and \(\| x+ty\| <\| x\|\) for some distinct x,y\(\in S\) and real t.
