Compact, Hilbert-Schmidt, and Trace-Class Operators

  • Robert D. Richtmyer
Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)


This chapter deals with several classes of bounded operators: the compact, Hilbert-Schmidt, trace-class and degenerate operators; they are related by the inclusions bounded ⊃ compact ⊃ Hilbert-Schmidt ⊃ trace-class ⊃ degenerate.


Canonical representation of a compact operator the spectrum the Hilbert-Sehmidt norm the trace the spectra of operators with compact resolvent applications to differential and integral operators
