Factorization through Hilbert space and the dilation of \(L(X,Y)\)-valued measures. (English) Zbl 0812.47016
Summary: We present a general necessary and sufficient algebraic condition for the spectral dilation of a finitely additive \(L(X,Y)\)-valued measure of finite semivariation when \(X\) and \(Y\) are Banach spaces. Using our condition we derive the main results of Rosenberg, Makagon and Salehi, and Miamee without the assumption that \(X\) and/or \(Y\) are Hilbert spaces. In addition we relate the dilation problem to the problem of factoring a family of operators through a single Hilbert space.
