Abstract. Using the technique of minimal vectors, as introduced by Ansari and Enflo and generalized by Troitsky, we provide new results concerning the existence of invariant subspaces for operators satisfying conditions similar to those of Lomonosov's theorems. Most of the operators to which the theory applies are quasinilpotent, but a wide class of weighted shifts, including vectorial shifts, is studied as a further application.
