Semi-Browder operators and perturbations
An operator in a Banach space is called upper (resp. lower) semi-Browder if it is upper (lower) semi-Fredholm and has a finite ascent (resp. descent). An operator in a Banach space is called semi-Browder if it is upper semi-Browder or lower semi-Browder. We prove the stability of the semi-Browder operators under commuting Riesz operator perturbations. As a corollary we get some results of Grabiner , Kaashoek and Lay , Lay , Rakočević  and Schechter .
