For a Banach space X, let L(X) denote the space of bounded linear operators from X to itself. For any pair of operators A,B in L(X) one can define the multiplication operator LARB acting on L(X) as LARB(T)= ATB. The general aim is to study properties of LARB in terms of those of A and B. In particular, Lindström, Saksman and Tylli in 2005 have shown that, when X=Lp, the multiplication LARB is strictly singular precisely when A and B are. The proof is however undesirably lengthy. In this talk, we will see a factorization argument which could provide an alternative approach: if A and B are strictly singular on Lp then LARB actually factors through the space compact operators on the sequence space lp. This is based on joint work with M. Mathieu.
