Lower bounds on the number of scattering poles. II. (English) Zbl 0823.35137
In continuation of their paper [Commun. Partial Differ. Equ. 18, No. 5-6, 847-857 (1993; Zbl 0784.35070)] (where several examples were treated), here the authors obtain a very general lower bound on the number of scattering poles, for a wide class of abstract compactly supported perturbations of the Laplacian in $$\mathbb{R}^ n$$ ($$n$$ odd). The proof is based on the exploitation of the singularities of the wave trace at zero.
