Fredholm theory in ordered Banach algebras
This paper illustrates some initial steps taken in the effort of unifying the theory of positivity in ordered Banach algebas (OBAs) with the general Fred-holm theory in Banach algebras. We introduce here upper Weyl and upper Browder elements in an OBA relative to an arbitrary Banach algebra homomorphism and investigate the spectra corresponding to the sets of upper Weyl and upper Browder elements, which we shall refer to as the upper Weyl and upper Browder spectra, respectively.
