As a result, we give three characterizations of super weakly compact sets: The first one is Grothendiek's type theorem; the second one is James' type characterization and the last one is super BanachSaks property. We also show that super weak compactness, finite index property and finite dual index property of a closed convex set are actually equivalent. Therefore, eleven notions and properties eventually coincide for a closed bounded convex set. We also present some characterizations of uniformly weakly null sequences. These are done by localizing some basic properties of ultrapowers and using some geometric procedures of Banach spaces. Keywords: Super weakly compact set, super BanachSaks set, finite index, finite dual index, ultraproduct, Banach space. MSC: 46B20, 46B03, 46B50 [ Fulltextpdf (194 KB)] for subscribers only.
