Abstract: The reduction theorem for the Leray-Schauder degree provides an efficient tool to calculate the value of the degree in a suitable invariant subspace. We shall prove how the calculation of the value of the topological degree for a mapping of class $ (S_+)$ from a real separable reflexive Banach space $ X$ into the dual space $ X^*$ can be reduced into the calculation of degree of mapping from a closed subspace $ V\subset X$ into $ V^*.$ Since the Leray-Schauder mappings are acting from $ X$ to $ X$ and we are dealing with mappings from $ X$ to $ X^*,$ the standard `invariant subspace' condition must be replaced by a less obvious one.
