Many families of function spaces play a central role in analysis, such as \(L^p\) spaces, Besov spaces, amalgam spaces or modulation spaces.In all such cases, the parameter indexing the family measures the behavior (regularity, decay properties) of particular functions or operators.Ac tually all these space families are, or contain, scales or lattices of Banach spaces, which are special cases of partial inner product spaces( pip-spaces).In this paper, we shall give an overview of pip-spaces and operators on them, defined globally.W e will discuss a number of operator classes, such as morphisms, projections or certain integral operators.W e also explain how a pip-space can be generated from a *-algebra of operators on a Hilbert space and we prove that, under natural conditions, every lattice of Hilbert spaces is obtained in this way.
