In this chapter, various essential spectra are studied. For a closed operator in a Banach space, a number of different sets have been used for the essential spectrum, the sets being identical for a self-adjoint operator in a Hilbert space. As well as the essential spectra, the changes that occur when the operator is perturbed are discussed. Constant-coefficient differential operators are studied in detail.
