The strong* topology s_(X) of a Banach space X is defined as the locally convex topology generated by the seminorms x 7! kSxk for bounded linear maps S from X into Hilbert spaces. The w-right topology for X, _(X), is a stronger locally convex topology, which may be analogously characterised by taking reflexive Banach spaces in place of Hilbert spaces. For any Banach space Y , a linear map T : X ! Y is known to be weakly compact precisely when T is continuous from the w-right topology to the norm topology of Y . The main results deal with conditions for, and consequences of, the coincidence of these two topologies on norm bounded sets. A large class of Banach spaces, including all C_-algebras, and more generally, all JB_-triples, exhibit this behaviour.
