Homogeneous Extensions of the Quadratic Form of the Laplace Operator for a Field Interacting with Two Point-Like Sources

  • T. A. BolokhovEmail author

We consider the set of closable homogeneous extensions of the quadratic form of the Laplace operator generated by interaction with two point-like sources. We show that this set consists of the trivial (maximal) extension, one point, and a subset equivalent to the Riemann sphere 𝕊2.
