Abstract

For the selfadjoint Schrödinger operator −Δ−αV on ℝ2 the number of negative eigenvalues is estimated. The estimates obtained are based upon a new result on the weightedL2-approximation of functions from the Sobolev spaces in the cases corresponding to the critical exponent in the embedding theorem.
