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
