|Abstract||We study the existence of common invariant subspaces for semigroups of idempotent operators. It is known that in finite dimensions every such semigroup is simultaneously triangularizable. The question; of the existence of even one non-trivial invariant subspace is still open in infinite dimensions. Working with semigroups of idempotent operators in Hilbert/Banach vector space settings, we exploit the connection between the purely algebraic structure and the operator structure to show that the answer is affirmative in a number of cases.|
