Abstract: The Operator Kantorovich Inequality

\begin{displaymath}(R^2 - r^2) \, u^* (a^* a) \, u \ \le \ R^2 \, (u^* a^* u) (u^* a u) \end{displaymath}

holds for a wide class of operators $a$ on a Hilbert space $\mathcal {H}$ and all operators $u: % \mathcal {K}\to % \mathcal {H}$ for which $[a] \, u$ is a partial isometry, $[a]$ being the range projection of $a.$
