Abstract: Let $T$ be a bounded linear operator acting on a separable infinite dimensional Hilbert space. Let $\epsilon $ be a positive number. In this article, we prove that the perturbation of $T$ by a compact operator $K$ with $\Vert K\Vert <\epsilon $ can be strongly irreducible if $T$ is a quasitriangular operator with the spectrum $\sigma (T)$ connected. The Main Theorem of this article nearly answers the question below posed by D. A. Herrero.

Suppose that $T$ is a bounded linear operator acting on a separable infinite dimensional Hilbert space with $\sigma (T)$ connected. Let $\epsilon >0$ be given. Is there a compact operator $K$ with $\Vert K\Vert <\epsilon $ such that $T+K $ is strongly irreducible?
