Number of bound states for fractional Schrödinger operators

Estimating the number of bound states (i.e. the number of negative eigenvalues counting multiplicities) of the two-body Schrödinger operator -Δ+V(x) on L²(ℝᵈ) constitutes a rich problem that has attracted lots of attention in the mathematical literature. This series of lectures will focus on bounds on the number of bound states for fractional Schrödinger operators (-Δ)ˢ+V(x) on L²(ℝᵈ), for any s>0 and in any spatial dimension d≥1. In the subcritical case s<d/2, we will in particular review the celebrated Cwikel-Lieb-Rozenblum bounds, while in the super-critical case s≥ d/2, we will report on a recent joint work with V. Grasselli.

This initiative is part of the “PhD Lectures” activity of the project “Departments of Excellence 2023-2027” of the Department of Mathematics of Politecnico di Milano. This activity consists of seminars open to PhD students, followed by meetings with the speaker to discuss and go into detail on the topics presented at the talk.
