The transmission zeros, for a class of distributed parameter systems, are defined as the limit points of the spectrum as the feedback gain increases to infinity. A simple criterion, which characterizes the transmission zeros, different from the system operators spectrum, is found. The case, when the transmission zeros belong to the spectrum, is also discussed. The presented theory is clarified with an example.
