      There is a rather surprisingly large literature on generalizations of
      the concept of singular values to operators on Banach spaces. Here are
      a couple of books on the subject. Once you get away from Hilbert
      spaces, the subject becomes somewhat more difficult. I haven't looked
      at this stuff for about 20 years, so I am definitely not the expert.
