Abstract: The study of operator factorization along commutative subspace lattices which are not nests leads to the investigation of the mapping which takes an orthogonal projection in the diagonal of a nest algebra to the projection on the closure of the range of *AQ* for certain bounded linear operators . The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that if is an operator leaving the range of invariant, is an element of the "Larson radical" of is invertible, belongs to , and is in the diagonal of , then . For example, if is in the Jacobson radical of and is a nonzero scalar, it follows that if and only if belongs to the diagonal of . Examples of the applications to operator factorization and unitary equivalence of sets of projections are given.
