Finding a maximal subalgebra on which the two Arens products agree

Julien O. Hennefeld

Vol. 59 (1975), No. 1, 93–98
Abstract

Arens has given two ways of defining a Banach algebra product on the second dual of a Banach algebra 𝒜. In this paper we give a construction for finding a maximal subalgebra on which the two Arens products agree. Moreover, we give an example which shows that there is not necessarily a unique maximal subalgebra on which the two Arens products agree. This example is a Banach algebra whose second dual has a nonunique element I which is simultaneously a right identity under the first Arens product and a left identity under the second Arens product.
