Agmon-Type Estimates for a Class of Difference Operators

20 Jun 2017  ·  Klein Markus, Rosenberger Elke ·

We analyze a general class of self-adjoint difference operators $H_\varepsilon = T_\varepsilon + V_\varepsilon$ on $\ell^2(\varepsilon\mathbb{Z}^d)$, where $V_\varepsilon$ is a one-well potential and $\varepsilon$ is a small parameter. We construct a Finslerian distance $d$ induced by $H_\varepsilon$ and show that short integral curves are geodesics... Then we show that Dirichlet eigenfunctions decay exponentially with a rate controlled by the Finsler distance to the well. This is analog to semiclassical Agmon estimates for Schr\"odinger operators. read more
