Polynomially normal operators


In this paper, we introduce a polynomially normal operator on a complex Hilbert space, extending the notation of n-normal and normal operators. Several basic properties of polynomially normal operator are firstly presented. We show some spectral properties of polynomially normal operators under new assumption in literature. Precisely, we prove that \(\sigma (T)=\sigma _a(T)\), \(\ker (T-z) \, \bot \, \ker (T - w)\) if z and w are distinct eigen-values of T and others results. Thus, we generalize some results for n-normal and normal operators.
