#### Streszczenie

For a completely non-unitary contraction $T$, some necessary (and, in certain cases, sufficient) conditions are found for the range of the $H^{\infty}$ calculus, $H^{\infty} (T)$, and the commutant, $\{T\}'$, to contain non-zero compact operators, and for the finite rank operators of $\{T\}'$ to be dense in the set of compact operators of $\{T\}'$. A sufficient condition is given for $\{T\}'$ to contain non-zero operators from the Schatten–von Neumann classes $S_p$.
