Various notions of essential spectrum have been defined for densely defined closed operators on a Banach space. This paper shows that the theory for those notions of essential spectrum simplifies if the underlying space is a Hilbert space and the operator is reduced by its finite-dimensional eigenspaces. In that situation this paper classifies each essential spectrum in terms of the usual language for the spectrum of a Hilbert space operator. As an application this paper deduces the main results of several recent papers dealing with generalizations of the Weyl theorem.
