It is known that if a is an algebraic element of a Banach algebra A, then its spectrum σ(a) is finite, and there exists γ > 0 such that the Hausdorff distance to spectra of nearby elements satisfies Δ(σ(a + x), σ(a)) = O(∥x∥γ) as x → 0. We prove that the converse is also true, provided that A is semisimple.
