Abstract: In this note we relate two notions of compactness for strongly continuous semigroups of linear operators and cosine functions of linear operators. Specifically, if T denotes a strongly continuous semigroup of linear operators defined on a Banach space X, we will show that T is compact if and only if the set $ \{ (T( \bullet )x:x \in X,\left\Vert x \right\Vert \leq 1\} $ is relatively compact in any space $ {L^p}([0,a]);X)$ for $ 1 \leq p < \infty $ and $ a > 0$. We establish similar results for $ {(T(t) - I)^n},n \in {\mathbf{N}}$, and for cosine and sine functions of operators.
