## Abstract

In this paper variational principles for eigenvalues of an abstract model of the Klein-Gordon equation with electromagnetic potential are established. They are used to characterize and estimate eigenvalues in cases where the essential spectrum has a gap around 0, even in the presence of complex eigenvalues. As a consequence, a comparison between eigenvalues of the Klein-Gordon equation in R^d and eigenvalues of certain Schrödinger operators is obtained. The results are illustrated on examples including the Klein-Gordon equation with Coulomb and square-well potential.
