The general form and the automatic continuity of <br />separating maps between various Banach algebras have been studied <br />extensively. In this paper, we first extend the notion of separating <br />map for module case and then we give a description of a linear <br />separating map $T:B longrightarrow X$, where $B$ is a unital <br />commutative semisimple regular Banach algebra satisfying the <br />Ditkin's condition and $X$ is a left Banach module over a unital <br />commutative Banach algebra. We also show that if $X$ is hyper <br />semisimple and $T$ is bijective, then $T$ is automatically <br />continuous and $T^{-1}$ is separating as well.http://bims.iranjournals.ir/article_375_1bbfb6fc763d4e986298a5e63f05fd4c.pdf
