Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

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.
