#### Abstract

For a Hilbert space H, let L(H) denote the algebra of all bounded operators on H. For an $n \in N$, it is well known that any element $T \in L(\oplus^n H)$ is expressed as an $n \times n$ matrix each of whose entries lies in L(H) so that T is written as $$(1) T = (T_{ij}), i, j = 1, 2, ..., n, T_{ij} \in L(H),$$ where $\oplus^n H$ is the direct sum Hilbert space of n copies of H.
