A global analysis is presented of solutions for Laplace's equation on three-dimensional Euclidean space in one of the most general orthogonal asymmetric confocal cyclidic coordinate systems which admit solutions through separation of variables. We refer to this coordinate system as five-cyclide coordinates since the coordinate surfaces are given by two cyclides of genus zero which represent inversions of each other with respect to the unit sphere, a cyclide of genus one, and two disconnected cyclides of genus zero. This coordinate system is obtained by stereographic projection of sphero-conal coordinates on four-dimensional Euclidean space. The harmonics in this coordinate system are given by products of solutions of second-order Fuchsian ordinary differential equations with five elementary singularities. The Dirichlet problem for the global harmonics in this coordinate system is solved using multiparameter spectral theory in the regions bounded by the asymmetric confocal cyclidic coordinate surfaces.
Comment on “The problem of deficiency indices for discrete Schrödinger operators on locally finite graphs” [J. Math. Phys.52, 063512 (2011)]54(2013); http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4803899View Description Hide Description
In this comment we answer negatively to our conjecture concerning the deficiency indices. More precisely, given any non-negative integer n, there is locally finite graph on which the adjacency matrix has deficiency indices (n, n).
