Ii) In [P1], we have defined d(X) as the ratio EIIXII2/o(X)2. 9 below this is equivalent to the above definition. d. with dim E = N, we know (cf. Chapter 3) that 7r2(IE) < N1/2. 15) that EIIXII (EIIXII2)1/2 < N1/2 SUP {(EI((X)I2)1/2I( E BE. } . Therefore we have d(X) < N = dim E. 4 reduces the task of proving Dvoretzky's Theorem for E to that of exhibiting E-valued Gaussian variables X with large dimension d(X). More precisely, let us denote by ne(X) the largest integer n such that there is an n-dimensional subspace F C E satisfying d(F, 4) < 1 + e.

4) 1 det(1 + eu-1T)I < (1 + ea(T))n. 2) a*(u-1) < n. On the other hand, we have trivially n = tru-lu < a(u)a*(u-1), hence a(u) = 1 and a*(u-1) = n. As an illustration, we derive a classical result of Auerbach. 3. Let E be a normed space of dimension n.

We will write simply LP for Lp(1l, P). Note that S is dense in LP for all0
