This work deals with a class of Jacobi matrices with power-like weights. The main theme is spectral analysis of matrices with zero diagonal and weights $\lambda \u2099:={n}^{\alpha}(1+\Delta \u2099)$ where α ∈ (0,1]. Asymptotic formulas for generalized eigenvectors are given and absolute continuity of the matrices considered is proved. The last section is devoted to spectral analysis of Jacobi matrices with qₙ = n + 1 + (-1)ⁿ and $\lambda \u2099=\surd \left({q}_{n-1}q\u2099\right)$.

Motivated by the theory of superconductivity and more precisely by the problem of the onset of superconductivity in dimension two, many papers devoted to the analysis in a semi-classical regime of the lowest eigenvalue of the Schrödinger operator with magnetic field have appeared recently. Here we would like to mention the works by Bernoff-Sternberg, Lu-Pan, Del Pino-Felmer-Sternberg and Helffer-Morame and also Bauman-Phillips-Tang for the case of a disc. In the present paper we settle one important...

We consider an infinite Jacobi matrix with off-diagonal entries dominated by the diagonal entries going to infinity. The corresponding self-adjoint operator J has discrete spectrum and our purpose is to present results on the approximation of eigenvalues of J by eigenvalues of its finite submatrices.

We consider a two-dimensional quantum waveguide composed of two semi-strips of width 1 and 1 − ε, where ε > 0 is a small real parameter, i.e. the waveguide is gently converging. The width of the junction zone for the semi-strips is 1 + O(√ε). We will present a sufficient condition for the existence of a weakly coupled bound state below π2, the lower bound of the continuous spectrum. This eigenvalue in the discrete spectrum is unique and its asymptotics is constructed and justified when ε → 0+....
