Let X be a Banach space. Then the following conditions are equivalent:
- X is a Grothendieck space,
- for every separable Banach space Y, every bounded linear operator from X to Y is weakly compact, that is, the image of a bounded subset of X is a weakly compact subset of Y,
- for every weakly compactly generated Banach space Y, every bounded linear operator from X to Y is weakly compact.
- X is Grothendieck iff every weak* - continuous function on the dual is weakly - Riemann integrable.
- Every reflexive Banach space is a Grothendieck space. Conversely, it is a consequence of the Eberlein–Šmulian theorem that a separable Grothendieck space X must be reflexive, since the identity from X to X is weakly compact in this case.
- Grothendieck spaces which are not reflexive include the space C(K) of all continuous functions on a Stonean compact space K, and the space L∞(μ) for a positive measure μ (a Stonean compact space is a Hausdorff compact space in which the closure of every open set is open).
