We show that if μ is a probability measure and X is a Banach space, then the Lebesgue-Bochner space L1(μ,X) admits an equivalent norm which is rotund (uniformly rotund in every direction, locally uniformly rotund, or midpoint locally uniformly rotund) if X does. We also prove that if X admits a uniformly rotund norm, then the space L1(μ,X) has an equivalent norm whose restriction to every reflexive subspace is uniformly rotund. This is done via the Luxemburg norm associated to a suitable Orlicz function.
Keywords: Lebesgue-Bochner space, rotund norm, URED norm, LUR norm, MLUR norm, UR norm, Luxemburg norm, Orlicz function.
