Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We establish sufficient conditions for the so-called Virozub-Matsaev condition for twice continuously differentiable self-adjoint operator functions. This condition is closely related to the existence of a local spectral function and to the notion of positive type spectrum. Applications to self-adjoint operators in Krein spaces and to quadratic operator polynomials are given.
