Abstract: If $ A$ is a bounded linear operator on a Hilbert space, define $ {r_e}(A)$, the essential spectral radius of $ A$, by

$\displaystyle {r_e}(A): = \sup \{ \vert\lambda \vert:\lambda \in \operatorname{ess}(A) = \operatorname{essential}\;\operatorname{spectrum}\;{\text{of}}\;A\} .$

It is shown that

$\displaystyle {r_e}(A) = \operatorname{inf}\{ \alpha ({S^{ - 1}}AS)\vert S:H \t... ...;{\text{bounded}}\;{\text{invertible}}\;{\text{linear}}\;\operatorname{map}\} ,$

where $ \alpha $ is the Kuratowski measure of noncompactness. As a consequence, a charcterization of the similarity of a linear strict set-contraction is obtained.
