132 LECTURE NOTES FOR 18.102, SPRING 2009 Lecture 22. Thursday April 30: Dirchlet problem continued I did not fnish the prooF last time:- Proof. Notice the Form oF the solution in case V 0 in (21.25). In general, we can choose a constant c such that V + c 0 . Then the equation d 2 w d 2 w (22.1) dx 2 + V w = Tw k ⇐⇒ dx 2 + ( V + c ) w = ( T + c ) w. Thus, iF w satisfes this eigen-equation then it also satisfes (22.2) w = ( T + c ) A (Id+ A ( V + c ) A ) 1 Aw ⇐⇒ Sw = ( T + c ) 1 w, S = A (Id+ A ( V + c ) A ) 1 A. Now, we have shown that S is a compact selF-adjoint operator

Unformatted text preview: on L 2 (0 , 2 ) so we know that it has a complete set oF eigenFunctions, e k , with eigenvalues k = 0 . rom the discussion above we then know that each e k is actually continuous since it is Aw with w L 2 (0 , 2 ) and hence also twice continuously dierentiable. So indeed, these e k satisFy the eigenvalue problem (with Dirichlet boundary conditions) with eigenvalues (22.3) T k = k 1 + c as k . The solvability part also Follows much the same way....
