If \(A\) generates a bounded cosine function on a Banach space \(X\) then the negative square root \(B\) of \(A\) generates a holomorphic semigroup, and this semigroup is the conjugate potential transform of the cosine function. This connection is studied in detail, and it is used for a characterization of cosine function generators in terms of growth conditions on the semigroup generated by \(B\). This characterization relies on new results on the inversion of the vector-valued conjugate potential transform.

Let \(X\) be a Banach lattice. Necessary and sufficient conditions for a linear operator \(A:D(A) \to X\), \(D(A)\subseteq X\), to be of positive \(C^0\)-scalar type are given. In addition, the question is discussed which conditions on the Banach lattice imply that every operator of positive \(C^0\)-scalar type is necessarily of positive scalar type.

In the scalar case one knows that a complex normalized function of boundedvariation \(\phi\) on \([0,1]\) defines a unique complex regular Borel measure\(\mu\) on \([0,1]\). In this note we show that this is no longer true in generalin the vector valued case, even if \(\phi\) is assumed to be continuous. Moreover, the functions \(\phi\) which determine a countably additive vectormeasure \(\mu\) are characterized.

\(C^0\)-scalar-type spectrality criterions for operators \(A\), whose resolvent set contains the negative reals, are provided. The criterions are given in terms of growth conditions on the resolvent of \(A\) and the semi-group generated by \(A\).These criterions characterize scalar-type operators on the Banach space \(X\), if and only if \(X\) has no subspace isomorphic to the space of complex null-sequences.

The following two norms for holomorphic functions \(F\), defined on the right complex half-plane \(\{z \in C:\Re(z)\gt 0\}\) with values in a Banach space \(X\), are equivalent:
\[\begin{eqnarray*} \lVert F \rVert _{H_p(C_+)} &=& \sup_{a\gt0}\left( \int_{-\infty}^\infty \lVert F(a+ib) \rVert ^p \ db \right)^{1/p}
\mbox{, and} \\ \lVert F \rVert_{H_p(\Sigma_{\pi/2})} &=& \sup_{\lvert \theta \lvert \lt \pi/2}\left( \int_0^\infty \left \lVert F(re^{i \theta}) \right \rVert ^p\ dr \right)^{1/p}.\end{eqnarray*}\] As a consequence, we derive a description of boundary values ofsectorial holomorphic functions, and a theorem of Paley-Wiener typefor sectorial holomorphic functions.

In the Banach space co there exists a continuous function of bounded semivariation which does not correspond to a countably additive vector measure. This result is in contrast to the scalar case, and it has consequences for the characterization of scalar-type operators. Besides this negative result we introduce the notion of functions of unconditionally bounded variation which are exactly the generators of countably additive vector measures.
