Spectral theory for functions of self-adjoint operators (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Let A, B be self-adjoint operators such that the standard assumptions of smooth scattering theory for the pair A, B are satisfied. The spectral theory of the operators of the type f(A)-f(B) will be discussed, with a particular attention to the case of discontinuous functions f. It turns out that the spectrum of f(A)-f(B) can often be explicitly described in terms of the spectrum of the scattering matrix for the pair A,B. This is joint work with D.Yafaev.
