Introduction Although by now quite a lot is known about positive compact operators on Banach lattices and their linear span, there remain a few problems that have not been resolved – not necessarily because of their difficulty but because no-one has yet addressed them. In this note we will tackle two of these. Several results are known telling us when positive operators dominated by a compact operator have to be compact. The earliest was the Dodds– Fremlin the- orem [7] telling us that if X and Y both have an order continuous norm then every positive operator from X into Y which is dominated by a compact operator must be compact. In [13] the author proved that the conclusion also holds if either X or Y is atomic with an order continuous norm and in [14] that these are the only three cases where the conclusion holds. In [1] Aliprantis and Burkinshaw showed that if either X or Z (or http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Positivity Springer Journals
