Let C R be the set of all bounded linear operators between Hilbert spaces H, K with closed range. This paper is devoted to the study of the topo- logical properties of C R if certain natural metrics are considered on it. We also deﬁne an action of the group GH × GK on C R and determine the orbits of this action. These orbits, which are strongly related to the connected compo- nents for the topology deﬁned by the metrics mentioned above, determine a stratiﬁcation of the set of Fredholm and semi-Fredholm operators. Finally, we calculate the distance, with respect to some of the metrics mentioned above, between different orbits of C R.
