AbstractLet H be a one-dimensional discrete Schrödinger operator. We prove that if Σess(H)⊂[−2,2], then H−H0 is compact and Σess(H)=[−2,2]. We also prove that if ${{H_0 + \frac 14 V^2}}$ has at least one bound state, then the same is true for H0+V. Further, if ${{H_0 + \frac 14 V^2}}$ has infinitely many bound states, then so does H0+V. Consequences include the fact that for decaying potential V with ${{\liminf_{{|n|\to\infty}} |nV(n)| > 1}}$, H0+V has infinitely many bound states; the signs of…
