Summary: These lectures are devoted to semiclassical spectral asymptotics with accurate remainder estimates and their applications to spectral asymptotics of other types.
In the introduction a brief description of the hyperbolic operator method is given. In part 1 we show how starting from rather classical theorems concerning LSSA (local semiclassical spectral asymptotics) one can weaken their conditions. In 2 we show how LSSA yield asymptotics of eigenvalues tending to \(+\infty\) for operators on compact manifolds and for operators on \(\mathbb{R}^d\) with potentials increasing at infinity and asymptotics of eigenvalues tending to \(-0\) for operators in \(\mathbb{R}^d\) with potentials decreasing at infinity. In 3 we present basic ideas permitting us to use the hyperbolic operator method for general matrix operators and for operators on manifolds with boundary. In 4 we apply the short-time propagation of singularities in order to justify the previous section construction; then in 5 we derive LSSA.
We treat long-time propagation of singularities in order to improve the remainder estimate in LSSA in 6 and in 7. In 8 we split LSSA and Lieb-Cwickel-Rozenbljum eigenvalue estimate and derive estimates above and below for the number of the eigenvalues for the Schrödinger operator. In 9 a more advanced development of the theory is presented.
