On the projection and macphail constants ofl n p spaces

  • Yehoram Gordon


We prove that the projection and Macphail constants ofl n p (1≦p≦2) are asymptotically equivalent ton 1/2 andn −1/2 respectively. We also obtain some relations linking certain parameters of general finite dimensional real Banach spaces.
