Abstract: We show that every nilpotent operator $T$, on an infinite-dimensional Banach space $X$, provides a decomposition of $X$ into a direct sum of a finite number of subspaces with sufficiently connections. Finally we construct a complete norm on $X$ that makes $T$ continuous and not equivalent to the original norm on $X$.
Keywords: uniqueness of complete norm topology; nilpotent operator.
