Main Article Content

A bounded linear Hilbert space operator $T$ is said to be $k$-quasi-class $A$ operator if it satisfy the operator inequality ${T^*}^k|T^2|T^k\ge {T^*}^k|T|^2T^k$ for a non-negative integer $k$. It is proved that if $T$ is a $k$-quasi-class $A$ contraction, then either $T$ has a nontrivial invariant subspace or $T$ is a proper contraction and the nonnegative operator $D={T^*}^k(|T^2|-|T|^2)T^k$ is strongly stable.
