Complex interpolation and twisted twisted Hilbert spaces

Félix Cabello Sánchez, Jesús M. F. Castillo and Nigel J. Kalton

Vol. 276 (2015), No. 2, 287–307

We show that Rochberg’s generalized interpolation spaces X(n) arising from analytic families of Banach spaces form exact sequences 0 X(n) X(n+k) X(k) 0. We study some structural properties of those sequences; in particular, we show that nontriviality, having strictly singular quotient map, or having strictly cosingular embedding depend only on the basic case n = k = 1. If we focus on the case of Hilbert spaces obtained from the interpolation scale of p spaces, then X(2) becomes the well-known Kalton–Peck space Z2; we then show that X(n) is (or embeds in, or is a quotient of) a twisted Hilbert space only if n = 1,2, which solves a problem posed by David Yost; and that it does not contain 2 complemented unless n = 1. We construct another nontrivial twisted sum of Z2 with itself that contains 2 complemented.
