Generic singular spectrum for ergodic Schrödinger operators

Duke University Press
Publication Date


We consider Schrödinger operators with ergodic potential V_ω(n) = f(T^n(ω)), n Є Z, ω Є Ω, where T : Ω → Ω is a nonperiodic homeomorphism. We show that for generic f Є C(Ω), the spectrum has no absolutely continuous component. The proof is based on approximation by discontinuous potentials which can be treated via Kotani theory.
