On Characteristics of the Range of Kernel Operators

Autoren: Moritz Gerlach, Jochen Glück (2024)

We show that a positive operator between L^p-spaces is given by integration against a kernel function if and only if the image of each positive function has a lower semi-continuous representative with respect to a suitable topology. This is a consequence of a new characterization of (abstract) kernel operators on general Banach lattices as those operators whose range can be represented over a fixed countable set of positive vectors. Similar results are shown to hold for operators that merely dominate a non-trivial kernel operator.
