### Rudin functional analysis: theorem 13.27 questions

Consider the following fragment from Rudin's book "Functional analysis": Questions: (1) I'm a bit confused about the formulation of (a). If $E(\omega_\alpha)\ne 0$, isn't it automatically ...

### Closure of the point spectrum of an unbounded diagonalizable operator

Given a (separable) Hilbert space H and an unbounded densely defined linear operator $T:{\cal D}(T) \to$H such that ${\cal D}$ is diagonalizable (it means $\exists$ an O.N.B. of H such that all basis ...

### Unbounded operator with closed range

Consider the spaces $C_{2\pi}^m$ of smooth $2\pi$-periodic functions, and the unbounded operator $L:C_{2\pi}^m\to C_{2\pi}$, given by $L(u)(t)=P(\partial)u(t)+u(t-\tau)$ where $P(\partial)$ is a ...

### Power of an infinitesimal generator of a $C_0$-semigroup in a Banach space

Let $A$ be the infinitesimal generator of a $C_0$-semigroup of linear operators in a Banach space. Let $n$ be a positive integer, $n\geq2$. Is $A^n$ closed? Here (setting $A^1$ $:=$ $A$, and ...

### Adjoint for a non-densely defined unbounded operator on a Hilbert space

Let $\mathbf{H}$ be a Hilbert space, and $D$ an unbounded densely-defined operator on $\mathbf{H}$. As is well-known, every such operator admits an adjoint, with domain possibly different from that ...

### The imaginary exponential of a tangent field on a manifold

If $M$ is a compact Riemannian manifold and $X$ is a tangent field, I am seeking to define the object $\exp {\mathrm i t X}$ for $t \in \mathbb R$, and I do not know how to do it. One option was to ...

### Spectrum equals eigenvalues for unbounded operator

Let $D$ be an unbounded densely defined operator on a separable Hilbert space $H$. If $D$ is diagonalisable with all eigenvalues having finite multiplicity and growing towards infinity, does it follow ...

### Non-point spectrum for diagonalisable self-adjoint unbounded operator

Given a (separable) Hilbert space H and an unbounded densely defined linear operator $T:{\cal D}(T) \to$H such that ${\cal D}$ is diagonalizable (it means $\exists$ an O.N.B. of H such that all basis ...

### Commuting with self-adjoint operator

Let $T$ be an (unbounded) self-adjoint operator. Assume that there is a bounded operator $S$ such that $TS=ST.$ For which kind of $f$ do we have that $f(T)S=Sf(T)?$ My thought was that using a ...

### Symmetric diagonalizable operators and self-adjointness

Given a densely defined symmetric operator $L$ on a Hilbert space $H$, which is also assumed to be diagonalizable, will there always exist a unique extension of $L$ to a self-adjoint operator?

### On the domains and extensions of unbounded operators

I am not an expert in functional analysis but I was studying some, motivated from some mathematical physics considerations. I am not quite sure whether this is research-level, but let me state some ...
Let $\mathcal{H}=L^2(\mathbb{R}^3)$, $H_0=\sqrt{-\Delta+M^2}$, ($M$ is a positive constant, $\Delta$ is the laplacian) and $H=H_0+V(\vec{x})$ (where $V(\vec{x})$ is the operator of ...
I'm asking for opinions about the 'best' notations for: 1. the algebraic dual of a vector space $X$; 2. the continuous dual of a TVS; 3. the algebraic dual (transpose) of an operator $T$ between ...
