Semiclassical reduction for magnetic Schrödinger operator with periodic zero-range potentials and applications. (English) Zbl 1185.35043

Authors’ abstract: The two-dimensional Schrödinger operator with a uniform magnetic field and a periodic zero-range potential is considered. For weak magnetic fields and a weak coupling we reduce the spectral problem to the semiclassical analysis of one-dimensional Harper-like operators. This shows the existence of parts of Cantor structure in the spectrum for special values of the magnetic flux.
