Among the outstanding problems in the theory of elementary operators on Banach algebras is the task to find a formula which describes the norm of an elementary operator in terms of the norms of its coefficients. Here we report on the state-of-the-art of the knowledge on this problem along the lines of our talk at the Functional Analysis Valencia 2000 Conference in July 2000.
