LetT be a positive linear operator on the Banach latticeE and let (Sn) be a sequence of bounded linear operators onE which converge strongly toT. Our main results are concerned with the question under which additional assumptions onSn andT the peripheral spectra πσ(Sn) ofSn converge to the peripheral spectrum πσ(T) ofT. We are able to treat even the more general case of discretely convergent sequences of operators.
