## Abstract

Some new examples of K-monotone couples of the type (X;X(ω)), where X is a symmetric space on [0; 1] and ω is a weight on [0; 1], are presented. Based on the property of ω-decomposability of a symmetric space we show that, if a weight ω changes sufficiently fast, all symmetric spaces X with non-trivial Boyd indices such that the Banach couple (X;X(ω)) is K-monotone belong to the class of ultrasymmetric Orlicz spaces. If, in addition, the fundamental function of X is t^{1/p} for some p ⋯ [1;∞], then X = L^{p}. At the same time a Banach couple (X;X(ω)) may be K-monotone for some non-trivial w in the case when X is not ultrasymmetric. In each of the cases where X is a Lorentz, Marcinkiewicz or Orlicz space, we find conditions which guarantee that (X;X(ω)) is K-monotone.
