We say that a subset $M$ of a normed space $X$ is linearly expand-contract plastic (briefly an LEC-plastic) if every linear operator $T\colon X \to X$ whose restriction on $M$ is a non-expansive bijection from $M$ onto $M$ is an isometry on $M$.<br><br>In the paper, we consider a fixed separable infinite-dimensional Hilbert space $H$. We define an ellipsoid in $H$ as a set of the following form $E =\left\{x \in H\colon \left\langle x, Ax \right\rangle \le 1 \right\}$ where $A$ is a self-adjoint operator for which the following holds: $\inf_{\|x\|=1} \left\langle Ax,x\right\rangle >0$ and $\sup_{\|x\|=1} \left\langle Ax,x\right\rangle < \infty$.<br><br>We provide an example which demonstrates that if the spectrum of the generating operator $A$ has a non empty continuous part, then such ellipsoid is not linearly expand-contract plastic.<br><br>In this work, we also proof that an ellipsoid is linearly expand-contract plastic if and only if the spectrum of the generating operator $A$ has empty continuous part and every subset of eigenvalues of the operator $A$ that consists of more than one element either has a maximum of finite multiplicity or has a minimum of finite multiplicity.</p>}, number={2}, journal={Matematychni Studii}, author={Karpenko, I. and Zavarzina, O.}, year={2022}, month={Jun.}, pages={192-201} }
