Abstract: There are some known results that guarantee the existence of a nontrivial closed invariant ideal for a quasinilpotent positive operator on an $AM$-space with unit or a Banach lattice whose positive cone contains an extreme ray. Some recent results also guarantee the existence of such ideals for certain positive operators, e.g. a compact quasinilpotent positive operator, on an arbitrary Banach lattice. The main object of this article is to use these results in constructing a maximal closed ideal chain, each of whose members is invariant under a certain collection of operators that are related to compact positive operators, or to quasinilpotent positive operators.
