Let $mathcal{H}$ and $mathcal{K}$ be infinite dimensional Hilbert spaces, while $mathcal{B(H)}$ and $mathcal{B(K)}$ denote the algebras of all linear bounded operators on $mathcal{H}$ and $mathcal{K}$, respectively. We characterize the forms of additive mappings from $mathcal{B(H)}$ into $mathcal{B(K)}$ that preserve the nonzero idempotency of either Jordan products of operators or usual products of operators in both directions. |
