Linear operators for which TT and T + T commute

Stephen LaVern Campbell

Vol. 61 (1975), No. 1, 53–57
Abstract

This paper is about the bounded linear operators T acting in a separable Hilbert space h such that TT and T + T commute. It will be shown that such operators are normal if they are either compact or quasinilpotent. It is conjectured that if TT and T + T commute, then T = A + Q where A = A, AQ = QA, and Q is quasinormal. This conjecture is shown to be equivalent to [TT TT]T[TT TT] being hermitian.
