Approximation properties for noncommutative Lp-spaces associated with lattices in Lie groups

By Tim de Laat

Abstract

In 2010, Lafforgue and de la Salle gave examples of noncommutative Lp-spaces without the operator space approximation property (OAP) and, hence, without the completely bounded approximation property (CBAP). To this purpose, they introduced the property of completely bounded approximation by Schur multipliers on Sp and proved that for p < 4/3 and p > 4 the groups SL(n,Z), with n \geq 3, do not have it. Since for 1 < p < \infty the property of completely bounded approximation by Schur multipliers on Sp is weaker than the approximation property of Haagerup and Kraus (AP), these groups were also the first examples of exact groups without the AP. Recently, Haagerup and the author proved that also the group Sp(2,R) does not have the AP, without using the property of completely bounded approximation by Schur multipliers on Sp. In this paper, we prove that Sp(2,R) does not have the property of completely bounded approximation by Schur multipliers on Sp for p < 12/11 and p > 12. It follows that a large class of noncommutative Lp-spaces does not have the OAP or CBAP.Comment: Version 2, 20 pages. Minor corrections, builds on results from arXiv:1201.125
