Spectral Analysis of Four Term Differential Operator Oluoch, Nyamwala Fredrick;
By strengthening dichotomy condition and weakening decay conditions, we show that a four term 2n-th order differential operator with unbounded coefficients is nonlimit-point. Using stringent conditions we show that the deficiency index of this operator is determined by the behaviour of the coefficients themselves. Similarly, we prove the absence of singular continuous spectrum and that the absolutely continuous spectrum has multiplicity two.
