Spectral Analysis of Schrodinger Operators


In Quantum Physics, the movement of particles under a potential is described by Schrodinger Operators. In this talk, we would like to address the problem of non-recurrent motion in Quantum Physics. We will start with the basic notions of Spectral Analysis and a discussion of the Laplacian Operator. Our goals are to State Lavine's Theorem on repulsive interactions and discuss its possible extensions.
