Title: A differential equation for Lerch's transcendent and associated symmetric operators in Hilbert space

Abstract

The function Ψ(x,y,s)=e{sup iy}Φ(−e{sup iy},s,x), where Φ(z,s,v) is Lerch's transcendent, satisfies the following two-dimensional formally self-adjoint second-order hyperbolic differential equation, where s=1/2+iλ. The corresponding differential expression determines a densely defined symmetric operator (the minimal operator) on the Hilbert space L{sub 2}(Π), where Π=(0,1)×(0,2π). We obtain a description of the domains of definition of some symmetric extensions of the minimal operator. We show that formal solutions of the eigenvalue problem for these symmetric extensions are represented by functional series whose structure resembles that of the Fourier series of Ψ(x,y,s). We discuss sufficient conditions for these formal solutions to be eigenfunctions of the resulting symmetric differential operators. We also demonstrate a close relationship between the spectral properties of these symmetric differential operators and the distribution of the zeros of some special analytic functions analogous to the Riemann zeta function. Bibliography: 15 titles.

  • The Bender-Dunne basis operators, T{sub −m,n}=2{sup −n}∑{sub k=0}{sup n}(n/k )q{sup k}p{sup −m}q{sup n−k} where q and p are the position and momentum operators, respectively, are formal integral operators in position representation in the entire real line R for positive integers n and m. We show, by explicit construction of a dense domain, that the operators T{sub −m,n}'s are densely defined operators in the Hilbert space L{sup 2}(R)
  • Free vertex operators [ital V]([gamma],[ital z]) are introduced as operators in Hilbert space. They are densely defined for [vert bar][ital z][vert bar][lt]1. Any radially ordered product of vertex operators is defined on a dense subset as an operator product. [parallel][ital V]([gamma],[ital z])[Psi][parallel] is bound by [parallel]exp([ital cN])[Psi][parallel] for appropriate [Psi], where [ital N] is the number operator and [ital c] is a positive constant. These results are applied to screened vertex operators.
  • The minimization problem for a quadratic functional defined on the set of nonwarning (causal) operators acting in a causal Hilbert space can be regarded as an abstract analog of the Wiener problem on constructing the optimal nonwarning filter. A similar problem also arises in the linear control problem with the quadratic performance criterion (in this case the transfer operators of a closed control system serve as causal ones). The introduction of causal operators in filtering theory and control theory is a mathematical expression of the causality principle, which must be taken into account for a number of problems. In themore » present paper we attempt to systematize the mathematical foundations of the abstract linear filtering theory, for which its basic results are expressed in terms of operators describing the filtering problem. We introduce and study a class of finite operators a natural generalization of the class of causal operators, and give a solution of the minimization problem for a quadratic positive functional defined on the set of causal operators acting in a discrete causal space.« less
