On the eigenvalues for slowly varying perturbations of a periodic Schrödinger operator. (English) Zbl 1124.34063

One-dimensional periodic Schrödinger operators perturbed by a slowly decaying potential are considered. An asymptotic expansion of the eigenvalues in the gaps of the periodic operator is given. If one slides the perturbation along the periodic potential, these eigenvalues oscillate. An exponentially small amplitude of the oscillations has been computed.
