Abstract: It is known that on a Hilbert space, the sum of a real scalar-type operator and a commuting well-bounded operator is well-bounded. The corresponding property has been shown to be fail on Lp spaces, for 1 < p ‡ 2 < \infty. We show that it does hold however on every Banach space X such that X or X* is a Grothendieck space. This class notably includes L1 and C(K) spaces.
