Spectrum of weighted composition operators part V spectrum and essential spectra of weighted rotation-like operators

We introduce the class of weighted “rotation-like” operators and study the general properties of the essential spectra of such operators. We then use this approach to investigate, and in some cases completely describe, the essential spectra of weighted rotation operators in Banach spaces of measurable and analytic functions.
