Title:Uniform Convergence of Operators and Grothendieck Spaces With the Dunford-Pettis Property

Abstract:A theorem of D. W. Dean states that all Grothendieck spaces with the Dunford-Pettis property fail to admit Schauder decompositions. Similar results of H. P. Lotz concern the uniform convergence of ergodic operators and semi-groups of operators. This thesis considers extensions of these results to wider classes of Banach spaces.
We say that a Banach space E has the surjective Dunford-Pettis property if every operator from E onto a reflexive Banach space maps weakly compact sets onto norm compact sets. The main result can now be stated.
Theorem. Let E be a Grothendieck space with the surjective Dunford-Pettis property, then (1) The space E admits no Schauder decompositions; (2) Every strongly ergodic operator T on E with (VBAR)(VBAR)T('n)/n(VBAR)(VBAR) (--->) 0 is uniformly ergodic; and (3) Every strongly continuous semi-group of operators (T(,t))(,t(GREATERTHEQ)0) on E is uniformly continuous.
Examples are presented to distinguish the surjective Dunford-Pettis property from the closely related Dunford-Pettis property.
