The Glazman–Povzner–Wienholtz theorem states that the completeness of a manifold, when combined with the semiboundedness of the Schrödinger operator −∆ + q and suitable local regularity assumptions on q, guarantees its essential self-adjointness. Our aim is to extend this result to Schrödinger operators on graphs. We first obtain the corresponding theorem for Schrödinger operators on metric graphs, allowing in particular distributional potentials q ∈ H loc . Moreover, we exploit recently… 
Laplacians on infinite graphs: discrete vs continuous
There are two main notions of a Laplacian operator associated with graphs: discrete graph Laplacians and continuous Laplacians on metric graphs (widely known as quantum graphs). Both objects have a


A Feynman–Kac–Itô formula for magnetic Schrödinger operators on graphs
In this paper we prove a Feynman–Kac–Itô formula for magnetic Schrödinger operators on arbitrary weighted graphs. To do so, we have to provide a natural and general framework both on the operator
We introduce the weighted graph Laplacian Δω,c and the notion of Schrodinger operator of the form Δ1,a + W on a locally finite graph G. Concerning essential self-adjointness, we extend
Discrete Schrödinger operators on a graph
In this paper, we study some spectral properties of the discrete Schrodinger operator = Δ + q defined on a locally finite connected graph with an automorphism group whose orbit space is a finite
Spectral theory of semibounded Sturm–Liouville operators with local interactions on a discrete set
We study the Hamiltonians HX,α,q with δ-type point interactions at the centers xk on the positive half line in terms of energy forms. We establish analogs of some classical results on operators
Self-adjointness of Schroedinger operators with singular potentials
We study one-dimensional Schroedinger operators S with real-valued distributional potentials q in W^{-1}_{2,loc}(R) and prove an extension of the Povzner-Wienholtz theorem on self-adjointness of
Sturm-Liouville operators with distributional potentials
In this paper we propose four different methods to determine Sturm-Liouville operator on an interval $(a,b)$ in case, when a potential $q(x)$ is a distribution from the Sobolev space with negative
On the Existence and Uniqueness of Self-Adjoint Realizations of Discrete (Magnetic) Schrödinger Operators
Discrete Laplacians and discrete magnetic Schrödinger operators feature in many different areas of mathematics. They are used in combinatorics and computer science, appear as discretizations of
Essential self-adjointness of Schrödinger-type operators on manifolds
Several conditions are obtained ensuring the essential self-adjointness of a Schrodinger-type operator , where is a first-order elliptic differential operator acting on the space of sections of a
Spectral Theory of Infinite Quantum Graphs
We investigate quantum graphs with infinitely many vertices and edges without the common restriction on the geometry of the underlying metric graph that there is a positive lower bound on the lengths
Essential self-adjointness of the graph-Laplacian
We study the operator theory associated with such infinite graphs G as occur in electrical networks, in fractals, in statistical mechanics, and even in internet search engines. Our emphasis is on the
