Injectivity of linear combinations in $\mathcal{B}(\mathcal{H})$

Main Article Content

Marko Kostadinov


The aim of this paper is to provide sufficient and necessary conditions under which the linear combination $\alpha A + \beta B$, for given operators $A,B \in {\cal B}({\cal H})$ and $\alpha, \beta \in \mathbb{C}\setminus \lbrace 0 \rbrace$, is injective. Using these results, necessary and sufficient conditions for left (right) invertibility are given. Some special cases will be studied as well.
