Commutators and numerical ranges of powers of operators

Elias Sai Wan Shiu

Vol. 65 (1976), No. 2, 517–523
Abstract

If 0 does not lie in the closure of the numerical range of any positive integral power of a Hilbert space operator T, then an odd power of T is normal. If, in addition, T is convexoid, then T itself is normal; in fact, T is the direct sum of at most three rotated positive operators. A version of these results is given in terms of commutators.
