The transmutation operator for −d2/(w(x) dx2)

  • Amin Boumenir (a1)

We would like to obtain the transmutation operator V, associated with the self-adjoint operators −d2/(w(x) dx2) and (−d2/(w(x) dx2)) + h(x), where w(x) ≎ xa as x → 0. We shall show that V = 1 + K, where K is a lower triangular Volterra operator.
