Extended Composition Operators in Weighted SpacesL. OubbiDepartment of Mathematics, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Rabat,B.P. 5118, Takaddoum, 10105 Rabat  MOROCCO Abstract: Let $X$ and $Y$ be Hausdorff completely regular spaces and $\beta X$ the StoneCech compactification of $X$. For locally convex spaces $E$ and $F$ consisting of continuous functions respectively on $X$ and $Y$ and whose topologies are generated by seminorms that are weighted analogues of the suprimum norm, we give necessary and sufficient conditions for a linear mapping $T: E\to F$ to be an extended composition operator. This means that there exists some map $\varphi: Y\to\beta X$ so that $T(f)=C_{\varphi}(f)$ $(:=\tilde{f}\circ\varphi)$, $f\in E$. Here $\tilde{f}$ stands for the Stone extension of $f$. We also characterize those maps $\varphi$ for which $C_\varphi$ satisfies one of the following conditions: Keywords: Extended composition operator; (locally) compact operator; strongly bounded operator; (locally) equicontinuous operator; weighted space.
