Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)


The basic theory of second-order ordinary differential operators, largely due to Hermann Weyl, is summarized in this chapter.


The operators (-id/dx) and -(d/dx)2 on ℝ regular and singular Sturm-Liouville operators limit-point and limit-circle endpoints method of Frobenius formulas for the resolvent and the spectral projectors eigenfunction expansions; the radial equations for the hydrogen atom in the nonrelativistic and relativistic cases
