It was shown by Haagerup and Schultz that for any operator ${\scriptstyle T}$ in a finite von Neumann algebra, the sequence ${\scriptstyle |T^n|^{1/n}}$ converges in the strong operator topology. In this talk we will use upper-triangular decompositions first described by Dykema, Sukochev and Zanin to explore when the sequence converges in norm.
