In science:

T k ξ k1/k ≤ r} Er = Er (T ) = {ξ ∈ H | lim sup which is dense in Hr .
Invariant subspaces of Voiculescu's circular operator
Moreover, U pr = prU will follow once we show that U ξ ∈ Er for every ξ ∈ Er .
Invariant subspaces of Voiculescu's circular operator
Er (T ⊗ 1) = {w ∈ H ⊗ H′ | lim sup Letting ⊙ denote the algebraic tensor product of vector spaces, we clearly have Er (T ) ⊙H′ ⊆ Er (T ⊗ 1), so the inequality ≤ holds in (4).
Invariant subspaces of Voiculescu's circular operator
Er (y ) = {ξ ∈ H | lim sup is closed; thus we have pr (y )H = Er (y ), without taking the closure.
Invariant subspaces of Voiculescu's circular operator
Er (T ); this shows that Er (T ) is not closed.
