Abstract: I will state a version of Voiculescu's noncommutative
Weyl-von Neumann theorem for operators on l^p that I obtained.
This allows certain classical results concerning unitary
equivalence of operators on l^2 to be generalized to operators on
l^p if we relax unitary equivalence to similarity. For example,
the unilateral shift on l^p, 1
