A Banach space operator T ∈ B (X) is hereditarily polaroid, T ∈ HP, if every part of T is polaroid. HP operators have SVEP. It is proved that if T ∈ B (X) has SVEP and R ∈ B (X) is a Riesz operator which commutes with T, then T + R satisfies generalized a-Browder's theorem. If, in particular, R is a quasi-nilpotent operator Q, then both T + Q and T* + Q* satisfy generalized a-Browder's theorem; furthermore, if Q is injective, then also T + Q satisfies Weyl's theorem. If A ∈ B (X) is an algebraic operator which commutes with the polynomially HP operator T, then T + N is polaroid and has SVEP, f (T + N) satisfies generalized Weyl's theorem for every function f which is analytic on a neighbourhood of σ (T + N), and f (T + N)* satisfies generalized a-Weyl's theorem for every function f which is analytic on, and constant on no component of, a neighbourhood of σ (T + N). © 2007 Elsevier Inc.
