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 In general a map which assigns to each bounded set in a nonnegative real number and which shares most of the properties of is called a homogeneous measure of noncompactness or homogeneous MNC. Two homogeneous MNC's and on are called equivalent if there exist positive constants and with for all bounded sets . There are many results which prove the equivalence of various homogeneous MNC's. Working with where , we give the first examples of homogeneous MNC's which are not equivalent. 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 The formula is known to be true if is equivalent to , the Kuratowski MNC; however, as we show, it is in general false for MNC's which are not equivalent to . On the other hand, if denotes the unit ball in and is any homogeneous MNC, we prove that Our motivation for this study comes from questions concerning eigenvectors of linear and nonlinear conepreserving maps.
