### Common core for unbounded operators

Suppose that $\mathcal H$ is a Hilbert space representing some physical system, $H$ is the Hamiltonian for the system, and $A$ is some observable for the system, that is, some unbounded self-adjoint ...

### Spectral theorem for unbounded operators

Part of the Spectral theorem for unbounded operators states that if $A$ is a self adjoint unbounded operator and $B$ is a bounded operator such that $BA$ is contained in $AB$, then $B$ commutes with ...

### Extensions of symmetric unbounded operators

I saw it claimed that every symmetric operator on a Hilbert space $H$ can be extended to a self-adjoint operator on some potentially larger space K. But I seem to be able to prove from this that every ...

### 'Local' commutativity of self-adjoint operators

Preamble Two (unbounded) self-adjoint operators $A, B$ on a Hilbert space $\mathcal{H}$ are said to (strongly) commute if the unitary groups they generate commute or equivilantely if all the ...

### When the adjoint of an unbounded operator on a Hilbert space coincides with the formal adjoint on its natural domain?

This is almost a copy of https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/3931318/when-the-adjoint-of-an-unbounded-operator-on-a-hilbert-space-coincides-with-the I am trying to work with infinite matrices in ...

### "Trade-off" between bound on the function and on the spectrum for functional calculus in spectral theory

Let $A$ be a self-adjoint (unbounded) operator on a separable Hilbert space $H$. From the following form of spectral theorem, we may define a functional calculus by $f(A)=Q^{-1} M_{f\circ \alpha} Q$. (...

### Characterising closed range self-adjoint operators

Let $T:\mathrm{dom}(T) \subseteq H \to H$ be a densely defined, self-adjoint operator on a Hilbert spaces $𝐻$. In general the range of $T$ is not guaranteed to be closed. What tools are available to ...

### An adjoint characterization of (unbounded) Fredholm operators

Let $\mathcal{H}_i$, for $i=1,2$, be Hilbert spaces, and $T:{\frak Dom}(T) \subseteq \mathcal{H}_1 \to \mathcal{H}_2$ a densely-defined closed operator. If the kernel of $T$, and the kernel of its ...

### Closable unbounded operators and Banach space adjoints

For an unbounded operator $T:\mathcal{H}_1 \to \mathcal{H}_2$, if its adjoint $T^*$ is densely defined, then we know that $T$ is closable. What happens if we replace $\mathcal{H}_1$ or $\mathcal{H}_2$ ...

### For self-adjoint $T$ on $L^2(\mathbb{R}^n)$, when does $(1 + |x|)^{-1} (T - i \varepsilon)^{-1}(1 + |x|)^{-1}$ have a limit as $\varepsilon \to 0$?
Let $T : L^2(\mathbb{R}^n) \to L^2(\mathbb{R}^n)$ be a possibly unbounded self adjoint operator. Let $R_\varepsilon$ denote the resolvent $(T - i \varepsilon)^{-1}$, $\varepsilon > 0$. Suppose that,...
Is the Laplacian operator $\Delta: C^2([a,b],\mathbb{R}) \to L^2(a,b)$ unbounded? Here $a,b \in\mathbb{R}$, $C^2([a,b],\mathbb{R})$ associated with $L^2$ norm. If yes, how can we "modify" these ...
