Spectral Theory of Pseudo-Ergodic Operators

  • E. B. Davies


We define a class of pseudo-ergodic non-self-adjoint Schrödinger operators acting in spaces l2(X) and prove some general theorems about their spectral properties. We then apply these to study the spectrum of a non-self-adjoint Anderson model acting onl2(Z), and find the precise condition for 0 to lie in the spectrum of the operator. We also introduce the notion of localized spectrum for such operators.
