Endomorphisms That Are the Sum of a Unit and a Root of a Fixed Polynomial If $C=C(R)$ denotes the center of a ring $R$ and $g(x)$ is a polynomial in C[x]$, Camillo and Sim\'{o}n called a ring$g(x)$-clean if every element is the sum of a unit and a root of$g(x)$. If$V$is a vector space of countable dimension over a division ring$D,$they showed that$\end {}_{D}V$is$g(x)$-clean provided that$g(x)$has two roots in$C(D)$. If$g(x)=x-x^{2}$this shows that$\end {}_{D}V$is clean, a result of Nicholson and Varadarajan. In this paper we remove the countable condition, and in fact prove that$\Mend {}_{R}M$is$g(x)$-clean for any semisimple module$M$over an arbitrary ring$R$provided that$g(x)\in (x-a)(x-b)C[x]$where$a,b\in C$and both$b$and$b-a$are units in$R$.

Near Triangularizability Implies Triangularizability In this paper we consider collections of compact operators on a real or complex Banach space including linear operators on finite-dimensional vector spaces. We show that such a collection is simultaneously triangularizable if and only if it is arbitrarily close to a simultaneously triangularizable collection of compact operators. As an application of these results we obtain an invariant subspace theorem for certain bounded operators. We further prove that in finite dimensions near reducibility implies reducibility whenever the ground field is$\BR$or$\BC\$.
