Abstract: A linear mapping from a subspace of a Banach algebra into another Banach algebra is called spectrally bounded if there is a constant such that for all , where denotes the spectral radius. We prove that every spectrally bounded unital operator from a unital purely infinite simple -algebra onto a unital semisimple Banach algebra is a Jordan epimorphism.
