Abstract:
We present condition on higher order asymptotic behaviour of basic sequences in a Banach space ensuring the existence of bounded non-compact strictly singular operator on a subspace. We apply it in asymptotic $\ell_p$ spaces, $1\leq p<\infty$, in particular in convexified mixed Tsirelson spaces and related asymptotic $\ell_p$ HI spaces.

Abstract:
We study the problem of the existence of unconditional basic sequences in Banach spaces of high density. We show, in particular, the relative consistency with GCH of the statement that every Banach space of density $\aleph_\omega$ contains an unconditional basic sequence.

Abstract:
In this paper we introduce a new technique to prove the existence of closed subspaces of maximal dimension inside sets of topological vector sequence spaces. The results we prove cover some sequence spaces not studied before in the context of spaceability and settle some questions on classical sequence spaces that remained open.

Abstract:
We prove that there exist Banach spaces not containing $\ell_1$, failing the point of continuity property and satisfying that every semi-normalized basic sequence has a boundedly complete basic subsequence. This answers in the negative the problem of the Remark 2 in H. P. Rosenthal. "Boundedly complete weak-Cauchy sequences in Banach spaces with PCP." J. Funct. Anal. 253 (2007) 772-781.

Abstract:
Two new applications of a technique for spaceability are given in this paper. For the first time this technique is used in the investigation of the algebraic genericity property of the weak form of Peano's theorem on the existence of solutions of the ODE $u'=f(u)$ on $c_0$. The space of all continuous vector fields $f$ on $c_0$ is proved to contain a closed $\mathfrak{c}$-dimensional subspace formed by fields $f$ for which -- except for the null field -- the weak form of Peano's theorem fails to be true. The second application generalizes known results on the existence of closed $\mathfrak{c}$-dimensional subspaces inside certain subsets of $\ell_p(X)$-spaces, $0 < p < \infty$, to the existence of closed subspaces of maximal dimension inside such subsets.

Abstract:
In this paper, we study the existence of infinite dimensional closed linear subspaces of a rearrangement invariant space on [0,1] every nonzero element of which does not belong to any included rearrangement invariant space of the same class such that the inclusion operator is disjointly strictly singular. We consider Lorentz, Marcinkiewicz and Orlicz spaces. The answer is affirmative for Marcinkiewicz spaces and negative for Lorentz and Orlicz spaces. Also, the same problem is studied for Nakano spaces assuming different hypothesis.

Abstract:
Let $X$ be a Banach space. We prove that, for a large class of Banach or quasi-Banach spaces $E$ of $X$-valued sequences, the sets $E-\bigcup _{q\in\Gamma}\ell_{q}(X)$, where $\Gamma$ is any subset of $(0,\infty]$, and $E-c_{0}(X)$ contain closed infinite-dimensional subspaces of $E$ (if non-empty, of course). This result is applied in several particular cases and it is also shown that the same technique can be used to improve a result on the existence of spaces formed by norm-attaining linear operators.

Abstract:
We prove that, unless assuming additional set theoretical axioms, there are no reflexive space without unconditional sequences of density the continuum. We give for every integer $n$ there are normalized weakly-null sequences of length $\om_n$ without unconditional subsequences. This together with a result of \cite{Do-Lo-To} shows that $\om_\omega$ is the minimal cardinal $\kappa$ that could possibly have the property that every weakly null $\kappa$-sequence has an infinite unconditional basic subsequence . We also prove that for every cardinal number $\ka$ which is smaller than the first $\om$-Erd\"os cardinal there is a normalized weakly-null sequence without subsymmetric subsequences. Finally, we prove that mixed Tsirelson spaces of uncountable densities must always contain isomorphic copies of either $c_0$ or $\ell_p$, with $p\ge 1$.

Abstract:
We show that Rochberg's generalizared interpolation spaces $\mathscr Z^{(n)}$ arising from analytic families of Banach spaces form exact sequences $0\to \mathscr Z^{(n)} \to \mathscr Z^{(n+k)} \to \mathscr Z^{(k)} \to 0$. We study some structural properties of those sequences; in particular, we show that nontriviality, having strictly singular quotient map, or having strictly cosingular embedding depend only on the basic case $n=k=1$. If we focus on the case of Hilbert spaces obtained from the interpolation scale of $\ell_p$ spaces, then $\mathscr Z^{(2)}$ becomes the well-known Kalton-Peck $Z_2$ space; we then show that $\mathscr Z^{(n)}$ is (or embeds in, or is a quotient of) a twisted Hilbert space only if $n=1,2$, which solves a problem posed by David Yost; and that it does not contain $\ell_2$ complemented unless $n=1$. We construct another nontrivial twisted sum of $Z_2$ with itself that contains $\ell_2$ complemented.
