On Topics in Spectral and Stochastic Analysis for Schrödinger Operators

  • Michael Demuth
Part of the Mathematical Physics Studies book series (MPST, volume 12)


It is given a certain overview on results in spectral theory for Schrödinger and generalized Schrödinger operators obtained in the last years by means of stochastic analysis, in particular by the use of the Feynman-Kac formulae.
