Non-Weyl resonance asymptotics for quantum graphs

E. Brian Davies and Alexander Pushnitski

Vol. 4 (2011), No. 5, 729–756
Abstract

We consider the resonances of a quantum graph G that consists of a compact part with one or more infinite leads attached to it. We discuss the leading term of the asymptotics of the number of resonances of G in a disc of a large radius. We call G a Weyl graph if the coefficient in front of this leading term coincides with the volume of the compact part of G. We give an explicit topological criterion for a graph to be Weyl. In the final section we analyze a particular example in some detail to explain how the transition from the Weyl to the non-Weyl case occurs.
