Abstract. We investigate the decomposability of nonnegative compact $r$-potent operators on a separable Hilbert space $\mathcal{L}^2(\mathcal{X})$. We provide a constructive algorithm to prove that basis functions of range spaces of nonnegative $r$-potent operators can be chosen to be all nonnegative and mutually orthogonal. We use this orthogonality to establish that nonnegative compact $r$-potent operators with range spaces of dimension strictly greater than $r-1$ are decomposable.
