## Abstract

This paper studies the resonances and points of spectral concentration of the block operator matrix $$\egin{pmatrix} -\frac{d^2}{d x^2}+q & \sqrt{tw} \\ \sqrt{tw} & u \end{pmatrix} $$ in the space $L^2(0,1) \oplus L^2(0,1)$. In particular we study the dynamics of the resonance/eigenvalue λ(t), showing that an embedded eigenvalue can evolve into a resonance and that eigenvalues which are absorbed by the essential spectrum give rise to resonance points. A connection is also established between resonances and points of spectral concentration. Finally, some numerical examples are given which show that each of the above theoretical possibilities can be realized.
