The Drazin and Moore-Penrose inverse in \(C^*\)-algebras. (English) Zbl 0943.46031

Summary: We give an explicit representation of the Moore-Penrose inverse in a \(C^*\)-algebra in terms of the Drazin inverse of a quasipolar element, and derive properties of the Moore-Penrose inverse from the theory of the Drazin inverse. Results include an alternative proof that regularity implies Moore-Penrose invertibility, and a simplified proof of the continuity theorem for the Moore-Penrose inverse.
