Let $B$ be an Infinite dimensional Banach Space and $T:B\to B$ be an continuous operator such that $T(B)=B$ and $T(x)=0\Rightarrow x=0$

which of the following is correct?

  1. $T$ maps bounded sets into compact set

  2. $T^{-1}$ maps bounded sets into compact set

  3. $T^{-1}$ maps bounded sets into bounded set

  4. $T$ maps compact sets into open set I have no idea how to do it.

Isn't this the bounded inverse theorem (, and hence the 3rd option? – Jan Keersmaekers Sep 12 '13 at 12:48
Everything is always mapped into open sets. Should 4. say "onto open sets"? – Jonas Meyer Sep 12 '13 at 17:53

$1.$ and $2.$ are not satisfied by $Tx=x$.

$3.$ $T^{-1}$ is bounded (as a consequence of the closed graph theorem).

$4.$ Take $K:=\{0\}$.

Davide could you tell me how $T^{-1}$ is bounded? – miosaki Sep 13 '13 at 5:12
What did your attempt with closed graph theorem give? – Davide Giraudo Sep 13 '13 at 9:32
