On Positive-off-Diagonal Operators on Ordered Normed Spaces

Anke Kalauch[1]

(1) Technische Universität Dresden, Germany

On a normed space X ordered by a cone K we consider a continuous linear operator A from X to X of the following kind: If a positive continuous functional f attains 0 on some positive element x, then f(Ax) is greater or equal to 0. If X is a vector lattice, then such operators can be represented as sI + B, where B is a positive operator, I is the identity and s is a real number. We generalize this assertion for weaker assumptions on X, using the Riesz decomposition property.

Keywords: Positive-off-diaganol operators, ordered normed spaces, Riesz decomposition property
