Amenability, Banach algebras, derivation, $l^1$-Munn algebras, semiroup algebras


In this paper, we study Connes amenability of $l^1$-Munn algebras. We apply this results to semigroup algebras. We show that for a weakly cancellative semigroup $S$ with finite idempotents, amenability and Connes amenability are equivalent.
