Given a star-shaped bounded Lipschitz domain $${\Omega\subset{\mathbb{R}}^d}$$Ω⊂Rd, we consider the Schrödinger operator $${L_{\mathcal{G}}=-\Delta+V}$$LG=-Δ+V on $${\Omega}$$Ω and its restrictions $${L^{\Omega_t}_{\mathcal{G}}}$$LGΩt on the subdomains $${\Omega_t}$$Ωt, $${t\in[0,1]}$$t∈[0,1], obtained by shrinking $${\Omega}$$Ω toward its center. We impose either the Dirichlet or quite general Robin-type boundary conditions determined by a subspace $${{\mathcal{G}}}$$G of the boundary space… 
An index theorem for Schrödinger operators on metric graphs
We show that the spectral flow of a one-parameter family of Schr\"odinger operators on a metric graph is equal to the Maslov index of a path of Lagrangian subspaces describing the vertex conditions.
First-order asymptotic perturbation theory for extensions of symmetric operators
This work offers a new prospective on asymptotic perturbation theory for varying self-adjoint extensions of symmetric operators. Employing symplectic formulation of self-adjointness we obtain a new
We show that the spectral flow of a one-parameter family of Schrödinger operators on a metric graph is equal to the Maslov index of a path of Lagrangian subspaces describing the vertex conditions. In
Instability of pulses in gradient reaction–diffusion systems: a symplectic approach
It is shown that this index equals the number of unstable eigenvalues for the linearized evolution equation, and it is used a symmetry argument to show that any pulse solution must have non-zero Maslov index, and hence be unstable.
Resolvent expansions for self-adjoint operators via boundary triplets
In this paper we develop certain aspects of perturbation theory for self-adjoint operators subject to small variations of their domains. We use the abstract theory of boundary triplets to quantify


The Morse and Maslov indices for multidimensional Schr\"odinger operators with matrix-valued potentials
We study the Schr\"odinger operator $L=-\Delta+V$ on a star-shaped domain $\Omega$ in $\mathbb{R}^d$ with Lipschitz boundary $\partial\Omega$. The operator is equipped with quite general Dirichlet-
A Morse Index Theorem for Elliptic Operators on Bounded Domains
Given a selfadjoint, elliptic operator L, one would like to know how the spectrum changes as the spatial domain Ω ⊂ ℝ n is deformed. For a family of domains {Ω t } t∈[a, b] we prove that the Morse
Counting spectrum via the Maslov index for one dimensional -periodic Schrödinger operators
We study the spectrum of the Schrodinger operators with $n\times n$ matrix valued potentials on a finite interval subject to $\theta-$periodic boundary conditions. For two such operators,
Generalized Robin Boundary Conditions, Robin-to-Dirichlet Maps, and Krein-Type Resolvent Formulas for Schr\
We study generalized Robin boundary conditions, Robin-to-Dirichlet maps, and Krein-type resolvent formulas for Schr\"odinger operators on bounded Lipschitz domains in $\bbR^n$, $n\ge 2$. We also
The Spectral Flow and the Maslov Index

The Morse index theorem in Hilbert space
When does the critical point of a calculus of variations problem minimize the integral? The classical result is due to Jacobi, who proved that for a regular problem in one independent variable, the
The Morse and Maslov indices for Schrödinger operators
We study the spectrum of Schrödinger operators with matrixvalued potentials, utilizing tools from infinite-dimensional symplectic geometry. Using the spaces of abstract boundary values, we derive
