Absolutely summing operator
whenever and . Here, denotes the value of the linear functional (the Banach dual of , cf. Adjoint space) at the element . The set of such operators, denoted by , becomes a Banach space under the norm , and is a Banach operator ideal. If , then .
The famous Grothendieck theorem says that all operators from into any Hilbert space are absolutely -summing.
Absolutely -summing operators are weakly compact but may fail to be compact (cf. also Compact operator). For a Hilbert space it turns out that is just the set of Hilbert–Schmidt operators (cf. Hilbert–Schmidt operator). Nuclear operators (cf. Nuclear operator) are absolutely -summing. Conversely, the product of absolutely -summing operators is nuclear, hence compact, if . This implies that the identity mapping of a Banach space is absolutely -summing if and only if (the Dvoretzky–Rogers theorem).
