In this paper, we show that every $k$-quasi-class $A$ operator has a scalar extension and give some spectral properties of the scalar extensions of $k$-quasi-class $A$ operators. As a corollary, we get that such an operator with rich spectrum has a nontrivial invariant subspace.

Operator representation of Cole-Hopf transform is obtained based on the logarithmic representation of infinitesimal generators. For this purpose the relativistic formulation of abstract evolution equation is introduced. Even independent of the spatial dimension, the Cole-Hopf transform is generalized to a transform between linear and nonlinear equations defined in Banach spaces. In conclusion a role of transform between the evolution operator and its infinitesimal generator is understood in the context of generating nonlinear semigroup.

In the paper, asymptotics for eigenvalues of Hermitian, compact operators, generated by infinite, banded matrices is obtained in terms of the asymptotics of their matrix entries. Analogues for banded matrices of Gershgorin's disks theory are discussed.

Operators preserving orthogonality on Hilbert $\it{K}(H)$-modules

In this paper, we study the class of orthogonality preserving operators on a Hilbert $\it{K(H)}$-module $W$ and show that an operator $T$ on $W$ is orthogonality preserving if and only if it is orthogonality preserving on a special dense submodule of $W$. Then we apply this fact to show that an orthogonality preserving operator $T$ is normal if and only if $T^*$ is orthogonality preserving.
