Absolute continuity of spectra of two-dimensional periodic Schrödinger operators with strongly subordinate magnetic potentials. (English. Russian original) Zbl 1148.35338
J. Math. Sci., New York 129, No. 4, 4087-4109 (2005); translation from Zap. Nauchn. Semin. POMI 303, 279-320 (2003).
Summary: A two-dimensional periodic magnetic Schrödinger operator with a variable metric is considered. It is shown that under the condition of strong subordination of the magnetic potential, the spectrum of the operator is absolutely continuous. A similar result concerning the Schrödinger operator in a simply connected periodic waveguide is also formulated.
