Abstract

‎The aim of this paper is to introduce a class of operators acting on a complex Hilbert space‎. ‎This class will contain‎, ‎among others‎, ‎non zero compact operators‎. ‎We will give a characterization of this class in term of generalized numerical ranges‎. ‎We will deduce that if $A$ is a compact operator‎, ‎then $w(A)=\vert \lambda \vert$ with $\lambda \in \wa$‎, ‎where $\wa$ and $w(A)$ are the numerical range and the numerical radius of $A$‎, ‎respectively‎. ‎We will give some new necessary conditions for an operator to be compact‎. ‎We will also show some light on the generalized numerical ranges of the elementary operators $\dd$ and $\m$‎.
