Approximate amenability and pseudo-amenability in Banach algebras
Pages: 309 – 320
We survey the recent development of approximate amenability and pseudo-amenability in Banach algebras, concentrating on the relationship between the two notions. It has been conjectured that a Banach algebra with a bounded approximate identity is approximately amenable if and only if it is pseudo-amenable. So far we only have partial affirmative results concerning the conjecture. Some open problems are also posted.
