The number [gamma] depends on the size of the region of analyticity of the resolvent and is basically determined by the distance of the curve to the closest eigenvalue.
In particular the projection is defined as the integral of the resolvent over an interval containing only one eigenvalue.
It is well known that Bu = u" is self-adjoint, with compact resolvent, and is the infinitesimal generator of an analytic semigroup on X.
The derivation of Wigner's semicircle in the large N limit is based on the resolvent (also known as the Green function):
(A) If H(q) is a diagonally monotone operator family in H with compact resolvent, then all eigenvalues [E.sup.H(q).sub.i] of H(q) are also diagonally monotone.
