This is an announcement for the paper "The Daugavet property of
$C^*$-algebras, $JB^*$-triples, and of their isometric preduals"
by Julio Becerra-Guerrero and Miguel Martin.
Abstract: A Banach space $X$ is said to have the Daugavet property if
every rank-one operator $T:X\longrightarrow X$ satisfies $\|Id + T\|
= 1 + \|T\|$. We give geometric characterizations of this property
in the settings of $C^*$-algebras, $JB^*$-triples and their isometric
preduals. We also show that, in these settings, the Daugavet property
passes to ultrapowers, and thus, it is equivalent to an stronger property
called the uniform Daugavet property.
