Abstract. Weak L2(RN )-solutions u of the Schrödinger equation, - u + q(x)u - u = f (x)
in L2(RN ), are represented by a Fourier series using spherical harmonics in order to prove the
following strong maximum and anti-maximum principles in RN (N 2): Let 1 denote the positive
eigenfunction associated with the principal eigenvalue 1 of the Schrödinger operator A = - +
q(x)· in L2(RN ). Assume that the potential q(x) is radially symmetric and grows fast enough near
infinity, and f is a `sufficiently smooth' perturbation of a radially symmetric function, f 0 and
