Characterizations of almost shrinking bases


The material of this paper depends upon the theory of locally convex spaces, sequence spaces and Schauder bases in topological vector spaces and as such we refer to [2] (cf. also [9]), [6] and [7] respectively for several unexpalined definitions, results and terms prevalent in the sequel.However, we do recall a few definitions and terms relevant to the present paper. So, we write thorughout X ≡(X, T) for an arbitrary Hausdorff locally convex space (l.c.s.) with X<sup>*</sup> denoting the topological dual of X and D<sub>T</sub> representing the saturated collection of all T-continuous seminorms generating the locally convex (l.c) topology T on X.Also we write the pair of sequences {x<sub>n</sub>; f<sub>n</sub>} for an arbitrary Schauder basis (S.b.) for X where x_n∈ X, f_n∈ X<sup>*</sup> and f<sub>m</sub>(x<sub>n</sub>)=δ_{mn}; m,n≥1. An S.b. {x<sub>n</sub>;f<sub>n</sub>} for (X,T) is called shrinking if {f<sub>n</sub>;\Psi x<sub>n</sub>} is an S.b. for the strong dual (X<sup>*</sup>, 𝛽(X<sup>*</sup>,X)),\Psi being the usual canonical embedding from X into(Error rendering LaTeX formula)
