Let X be a Banach space. Then there is a locally convex topology for X, the "Right topology," such that a linear map T, from X into a Banach space Y, is weakly compact, precisely when T is a continuous map from X, equipped with the "Right" topology, into Y equipped with the norm topology. When T is only sequentially continuous with respect to the Right topology, it is said to be pseudo weakly compact. This notion is related to Pelczynski's Property (V). (c) 2006 Elsevier Inc.
