Abstract: If P and Q are the projections onto essentially reducing subspaces M and N for an operator, the closed linear span and the intersection of M and N need not be essentially reducing or even essentially invariant. However, they are if $ M + N$ is closed, in particular if $ PQ = QP$ or if PQ is compact.
