We consider the structure of the lattice of (order and algebra) ideals of the band of regular kernel operators on Lp-spaces. We show, in particular, that for any Lp(μ) space, with μσ-finite and 1 < p< ∞, the norm-closure of the ideal of finite-rank operators on Lp(μ) , is the only non-trivial proper closed (order and algebra) ideal of this band. Key to our results in the Lp setting is the fact that every regular kernel operator on an Lp(μ) space (μ and p as before) factors with regular factors through ℓp. We show that a similar but weaker factorization property, where ℓp is replaced by some reflexive purely atomic Banach lattice, characterizes the regular kernel operators from a reflexive Banach lattice with weak order unit to a KB-space with weak order unit.
