Laplace transform methods in multivariate spectral theory

Robert F. V. Anderson

Vol. 51 (1974), No. 2, 339–348
Abstract

The Laplace transform of the semigroup exp(tA) generated by an operator A gives the resolvent of A. An integral formula is obtained for the Laplace transform of exp(tA + B), where B is another operator which does not commute with A. The new transform has analytic continuation to the same domain as the resolvent, but the analytic continuation is not single-valued. The integral formula is then applied to the joint spectral theory of noncommutative operators. Explicit compulations with matrices of degree two illustrate the results.
