||Connections Between Metric Characterizations of Superreflexivity and the Radon-NikodÃ½ Property for Dual Banach Spaces
Johnson and Schechtman (2009)
characterized superreflexivity in terms of finite diamond graphs.
The present author characterized the Radon-NikodÃ½m property
(RNP) for dual spaces in terms of the infinite diamond. This
is devoted to further study of relations between metric
characterizations of superreflexivity and the RNP for dual spaces.
The main result is that finite subsets of any set $M$ whose
embeddability characterizes the RNP for dual spaces, characterize
superreflexivity. It is also observed that the converse statement
does not hold, and that $M=\ell_2$ is a counterexample.

||Weak Sequential Completeness of $\mathcal K(X,Y)$|
For Banach spaces $X$ and $Y$, we show that if $X^\ast$ and $Y$ are
weakly sequentially complete and every weakly compact operator from
$X$ to $Y$ is compact then the space of all compact operators from $X$
to $Y$ is weakly sequentially complete. The converse is also true if,
in addition, either $X^\ast$ or $Y$ has the bounded compact
Keywords:weak sequential completeness, reflexivity, compact operator space
