Abstract: The Kuratowski measure of noncompactness on an infinite dimensional Banach space assigns to each bounded set in a nonnegative real number by the formula

Further, if is any complex, infinite dimensional Banach space and is a bounded linear map, one can define , where denotes the essential spectrum of . One can also define

Our motivation for this study comes from questions concerning eigenvectors of linear and nonlinear cone-preserving maps.
