For a self-adjoint operator in a Krein space we construct an interval [ν, μ] outside of which the operator has only a spectrum of definite type and possesses a local spectral function. As a consequence, a spectral subspace corresponding to an interval outside [ν, μ] admits an angular operator representation. We describe a defect subspace of the domain of the angular operator in terms of the Schur complement, and we derive variational principles for the discrete eigenvalues in such intervals of definite type.
