A note on the discrete Schrödinger operator with a perturbed periodic potential
Abstract. The aim of this paper is to study the spectrum of the one-dimensional discrete Schrödinger operator with a perturbed periodic potential. We obtain natural conditions under which this perturbation preserves the essential spectrum of the considered operator. Conditions on the number of isolated eigenvalues are given.
Keywords: one-dimensional Schrödinger operator, Jacobi operator, perturbation of periodic potential, essential spectrum, discrete part of the spectrum.
