Abstract: In a Hilbert space H, an operator C is semiclosed provided that there exists a bounded operator B on H, with range the domain of C, such that CB is bounded. The family of all such operators in H is the smallest family containing all closed operators and itself closed under any one of the following: (1) sums, (2) products, (3) strong limits on domains of closed operators. In fact, every algebraic combination of closed operators in H is the sum of two closed one-to-one operators with the same domain and closed ranges.
