We present a construction of singular rearrangement
invariant functionals on Marcinkiewicz function/operator spaces.
The functionals constructed differ from all previous examples in
the literature in that they fail to be symmetric. In other words,
the functional $\phi$ fails the condition that if $x\pprec y$
(Hardy-Littlewood-Polya submajorization) and $0\leq x,y$, then
$0\le \phi(x)\le \phi(y).$ We apply our results to singular traces
on symmetric operator spaces (in particular on
symmetrically-normed ideals of compact operators), answering
questions raised by Guido and Isola.
46L52 - Noncommutative function spaces
47B10 - Operators belonging to operator ideals (nuclear, $p$-summing, in the Schatten-von Neumann classes, etc.) [See also 47L20]
46E30 - Spaces of measurable functions ($L^p$-spaces, Orlicz spaces, Kothe function spaces, Lorentz spaces, rearrangement invariant spaces, ideal spaces, etc.)
