Those notes may be precious and of curiosity to mathematicians and physicists energetic in study in addition to for college students with a few wisdom of the summary thought of operators in Hilbert areas. they provide an entire spectral conception for usual differential expressions of arbitrary order n working on -valued services lifestyles and development of self-adjoint realizations through boundary stipulations, decision and learn of common houses of the resolvent, spectral illustration and spectral solution. exact recognition is paid to the query of separated boundary stipulations, spectral multiplicity and totally non-stop spectrum. For the case nm=2 (Sturm-Liouville operators and Dirac structures) the classical concept of Weyl-Titchmarch is integrated. Oscillation idea for Sturm-Liouville operators and Dirac platforms is built and utilized to the examine of the fundamental and totally non-stop spectrum. the consequences are illustrated through the specific resolution of a couple of specific difficulties together with the spectral concept one partical Schrödinger and Dirac operators with spherically symmetric potentials. The equipment of evidence are functionally analytic anyplace attainable.
