M-ideals in B(lp)

Roger R. Smith and Joseph Dinneen Ward

Vol. 81 (1979), No. 1, 227–237
Abstract

This paper is concerned with the M-ideal structure of the algebras B(lp) of bounded operators on the sequence spaces lp, 1 < p < . The M-summands are completely determined, but the M-ideals are only partially characterized. However evidence is presented to support the conjecture that the only nontrivial M-ideal is the ideal C(lp) of compact operators on lp.
