Spectral and scattering theory for the Klein-Gordon equation

  • Lars-Erik Lundberg


Eigenfunction expansions associated with the Klein-Gordon equation, are derived in the static external field case. By employing these, we develop spectral and scattering theory. The results are almost as strong as those obtained in the Schrödinger case.
