Discrete spectrum and principal functions of non-selfadjoint differential operator

##
Gulen Bascanbaz Tunca, Elgiz Bairamov

**Abstract:** In this article, we consider the operator $L$ defined by the differential expression

\ell(y)=-y"+q(x) y ,\quad- \infty< x < \infty

in $L_2(-\infty,\infty)$, where $q$ is a complex valued function. Discussing the spectrum, we prove that $L$ has a finite number of eigenvalues and spectral singularities, if the condition

\sup_{-\infty< x < \infty} \Big\{ \exp\bigl(\epsilon\sqrt{|x|}\bigr) |q(x)|\Big\} < \infty, \quad\epsilon> 0

holds. Later we investigate the properties of the principal functions corresponding to the eigenvalues and the spectral singularities.
