Semi-groups of scalar type operators in Banach spaces

T. V. Panchapagesan

Vol. 30 (1969), No. 2, 489–517

This paper deals with the spectral representation theorems of semi-groups of scalar type operators in Banach spaces. These results generalize the corresponding ones on semi-groups of hermitian, normal and unitary operators in Hilbert spaces. In the beginning sections we study some interesting properties of a W(∥⋅∥)-algebra-which generalizes the notion of an abelian von Neumann algebra to Banach spaces-and unbounded spectral operators arising out of E()-unbounded measurable functions where E() is a resolution of the identity. These results are applied later to prove the spectral representation theorems on semi-groups of scalar type operators. The last theorem of this paper gives an extension of Stone’s theorem on strongly continuous one parameter group of unitary operators to arbitrary Banach spaces.
