The positive fixed points of Banach lattices
Let Z be a Banach lattice endowed with positive cone C and an order-continuous norm j.j . Let G be a left-amenable semigroup of positive linear endomorphisms of Z . Then the positive fixed points Co of Z under G form a lattice cone, and their linear span Z0 is a Banach lattice under an order-continuous norm ||.||0 which agrees with |.| on Co. A counterexample shows that under the given conditions Z0 need not contain all the fixed points of Z under G , and need not be a sublattice of (Z, C). The paper concludes with a discussion of some related results.
