## On the metric compactification of infinite-dimensional Banach spaces. (arXiv:1802.04710v1 [math.FA])

The notion of metric compactification was introduced by Gromov and later rediscovered by Rieffel; and has been mainly studied on proper geodesic metric spaces. We present here a generalization of the metric compactification that can be applied to infinite-dimensional Banach spaces. Thereafter we give a complete description of the metric compactification of infinite-dimensional $\ell_{p}$ spaces for all $1\leq p < \infty$. We also give a full characterization of the metric compactification of infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. 查看全文>>
