Almost contractive maps between $C^*$ -algebras with applications to Fourier algebras

Abstract : We prove that unital almost contractive maps between ⁎-algebras enjoy approximately certain properties of unital positive maps (such as selfadjointness or the Kadison–Schwarz inequality). Our main application is a description of almost contractive homomorphisms between Fourier algebras and Fourier–Stieltjes algebras: they are actually contractive if their norm is smaller than 1.00018. For surjective isomorphisms of Fourier algebras, the bound 1.0005 is sufficient in order to obtain an isometry.
