  • In this thesis, we prove the non-amenability of the Banach algebra B(E), the banach algebra of all operators on an infinite dimensional Banach space E, where, for p in the interval [1,infinity), E is an infinite dimensional Lp-space in the sense of Lindenstrauss and Pelczynski. In addition, we prove that SS(E), the Banach algebra of all strictly singular operators on E, is not weakly amenable if E=C[0,1] or E= Lp[0,1], where p is in the interval [1,infinity). Then, we generalize this last result to all infinite dimensional separable Lp-spaces E such that E is not isomorphic to lp for p in the interval (1,infinity).
