Vector measures with values in the compact operators. (English) Zbl 0645.46037

A result of V. Kaftal and G. Weiss [Proc. Am. Math. Soc. 98, 431-435 (1986; Zbl 0616.47015)] on convergence of compact series of compact operators in Hilbert space has been extended and applied to the following result:
If m is a compact operator valued measure on a \(\sigma\)-algebra of sets, then it is \(\sigma\)-additive with respect to the uniform operator topology on B(H).
This result in turn simplifies the proof of a result of J. Diestel and B. Faires [Trans. Am. Math. Soc. 198, 253-271 (1974; Zbl 0297.46034)] on the uniform \(\sigma\)-additivity of integrals induced by compact selfadjoint operators.
