Investigation of spectral properties of q-difference operators

Lead Research Organisation: Cardiff University
Department Name: Computer Science


The project is to develop further recent work of the applicants with theVF on the spectral theory of q-difference operators. These operators have some properties that are seen in both differential and difference operators but also have entirely new charecteristics.We have comenced a research programme that studies the eigenvaluebranches and other spectral questions for these operators (see case for suport) and we request travel funds for two one month visits to Cardiff for the VF to further this research.
