On a conjecture of Hubner
- 27 Downloads
In this paper we show that for a bounded linear operatorA on a complex Hilbert spaceH, the points on the boundary of the numerical range ofA with infinite curvature and unique tangent are in the essential spectrum ofA, thus positively answering a conjecture raised by Hubner in .
