Abstract: Let be a Banach space, a unital -algebra, and an injective, unital homomorphism. Suppose that there exists a function such that, for all , and all ,

(a) ,

(b) ,

(c) .

Then for all , the spectrum of in equals the spectrum of as a bounded linear operator on . If satisfies an additional requirement and is a -algebra, then the Taylor spectrum of a commuting -tuple of elements of equals the Taylor spectrum of the -tuple in the algebra of bounded operators on . Special cases of these results are (i) if is a closed subspace of a unital -algebra which contains as a unital -subalgebra such that , and only if , then for each , the spectrum of in is the same as the spectrum of left multiplication by on ; (ii) if is a unital -algebra and is an essential closed left ideal in , then an element of is invertible if and only if left multiplication by on is bijective; and (iii) if is a -algebra, is a Hilbert -module, and is an adjointable module map on , then the spectrum of in the -algebra of adjointable operators on is the same as the spectrum of as a bounded operator on . If the algebra of adjointable operators on is a -algebra, then the Taylor spectrum of a commuting -tuple of adjointable operators on is the same relative to the algebra of adjointable operators and relative to the algebra of all bounded operators on .
