Abstract: Let $A$ be a symmetric positive definite linear transformation defined on a dense subset of a Hilbert space $H$, and let ${H_A}$. be the Hilbert space completion of the domain of $A$ with respect to the inner product ${(u,v)_A} = (Au,v)$. It is shown that the inverse of $A$ is completely continuous on ${H_A}$ if and only if it is completely continuous on $H$.
