Compact functors in categories of non-archimedean Banach spaces

Kung-Wei Yang

Vol. 39 (1971), No. 3, 821–826

Let K be a complete, non-archimedean, non-trivially valued field. Let B be the category of all non-archimedean Banach spaces over K satisfying the “condition (N)” with morphisms continuous linear transformations f,|f|1. In this paper, we first characterize all compact functors F : B B as functors which take finite dimensional spaces to finite dimensional spaces. We then show that in case K is maximally complete the Mityagin-Shvarts imbedding theorem for duals of functors holds true for functors in B. Finally, using the above results we show that the dual of a compact functor is itself compact.
