On an estimate for the norm of a function of a quasihermitian operator
Let A be a closed linear operator acting in a separable Hilbert space. Denote by co(A) the closed convex hull of the spectrum of A. An estimate for the norm of f(A) is obtained under the following conditions: f is a holomorphic function in a neighbourhood of co(A), and for some integer p the operator $A^p - (A*)^p$ is Hilbert-Schmidt. The estimate improves one by I. Gelfand and G. Shilov.
