#### Abstract

The operator on sequence space on is defined , where , and and are two convergent sequences of nonzero real numbers satisfying certain conditions, where . The main purpose of this paper is to determine the fine spectrum with respect to the Goldberg's classification of the operator defined by a double sequential band matrix over the sequence space . Additionally, we give the approximate point spectrum, defect spectrum, and compression spectrum of the matrix operator over the space .

#### 1. Introduction

Let and be Banach spaces, and let also be a bounded linear operator. By , we denote the range of , that is, By , we also denote the set of all bounded linear operators on into itself. If is any Banach space and , then the adjoint of is a bounded linear operator on the dual of defined by for all and .

Given an operator , the set is called the resolvent set of and its complement with respect to the complex plain is called the spectrum of . By the closed graph theorem, the inverse operator is always bounded and is usually called resolvent operator of at .

#### 2. Subdivisions of the Spectrum

In this section, we give the definitions of the parts point spectrum, continuous spectrum, residual spectrum, approximate point spectrum, defect spectrum, and compression spectrum of the spectrum. There are many different ways to subdivide the spectrum of a bounded linear operator. Some of them are motivated by applications to physics, in particular, quantum mechanics.

##### 2.1. The Point Spectrum, Continuous Spectrum, and Residual Spectrum

The name resolvent is appropriate, since helps to solve the equation . Thus, provided exists. More important, the investigation of properties of will be basic for an understanding of the operator itself. Naturally, many properties of and depend on , and spectral theory is concerned with those properties. For instance, we will be interested in the set of all 's in the complex plane such that exists. Boundedness of is another property that will be essential. We will also ask for what 's the domain of is dense in , to name just a few aspects. A regular value of is a complex number such that exists and bounded and whose domain is dense in . For our investigation of , , and , we need some basic concepts in spectral theory, which are given as follows (see [1, pp. 370-371]).

The resolvent set of is the set of all regular values of . Furthermore, the spectrum is partitioned into three disjoint sets as follows.

The point (discrete) spectrum is the set such that does not exist. An is called an eigenvalue of .

The continuous spectrum is the set such that exists and is unbounded and the domain of is dense in .

The residual spectrum is the set such that exists (and may be bounded or not), but the domain of is not dense in .

Therefore, these three subspectra form a disjoint subdivisions To avoid trivial misunderstandings, let us say that some of the sets defined above, may be empty. This is an existence problem, which we will have to discuss. Indeed, it is well known that and the spectrum consists of only the set in the finite-dimensional case.

##### 2.2. The Approximate Point Spectrum, Defect Spectrum, and Compression Spectrum

In this subsection, following Appell et al. [2], we define the three more subdivisions of the spectrum called as the approximate point spectrum, defect spectrum, and compression spectrum.

Given a bounded linear operator in a Banach space , we call a sequence in as a Weyl sequence for if and , as .

In what follows, we call the set the approximate point spectrum of . Moreover, the subspectrum is called defect spectrum of .

The two subspectra given by (2.2) and (2.3) form a (not necessarily disjoint) subdivision of the spectrum. There is another subspectrum which is often called compression spectrum in the literature. The compression spectrum gives rise to another (not necessarily disjoint) decomposition of the spectrum. Clearly, and . Moreover, comparing these subspectra with those in (2.1) we note that

Sometimes it is useful to relate the spectrum of a bounded linear operator to that of its adjoint. Building on classical existence and uniqueness results for linear operator equations in Banach spaces and their adjoints is also useful.

Proposition 2.1 (see [2, Proposition , p. 28]). Spectra and subspectra of an operator and its adjoint are related by the following relations: (a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), (g).

The relations (c)–(f) show that the approximate point spectrum is in a certain sense dual to defect spectrum, and the point spectrum dual to the compression spectrum.

The equality (g) implies, in particular, that if is a Hilbert space and is normal. Roughly speaking, this shows that normal (in particular, self-adjoint) operators on Hilbert spaces are most similar to matrices in finite-dimensional spaces (see [2]).

##### 2.3. Goldberg's Classification of Spectrum

If is a Banach space and , then there are three possibilities for : (A), (B), (C), and (1) exists and is continuous, (2) exists but is discontinuous, (3) does not exist.

If these possibilities are combined in all possible ways, nine different states are created. These are labelled by: , , , , , , , , . If an operator is in state , for example, then and exist but is discontinuous (see [3] and Figure 1).

Figure 1: State diagram for and for a nonreflective Banach space .

If is a complex number such that or , then . All scalar values of not in comprise the spectrum of . The further classification of gives rise to the fine spectrum of . That is, can be divided into the subsets , , , , , , and . For example, if is in a given state, (say), then we write .

By the definitions given above, we can illustrate the subdivisions (2.1) in Table 1.

Table 1: Subdivisions of spectrum of a linear operator.

Observe that the case in the first row and second column cannot occur in a Banach space , by the closed graph theorem. If we are not in the third column, that is, if is not an eigenvalue of , we may always consider the resolvent operator (on a possibly “thin” domain of definition) as “algebraic” inverse of .

By a sequence space, we understand a linear subspace of the space of all complex sequences which contains , the set of all finitely nonzero sequences, where denotes the set of positive integers. We write , , , and for the spaces of all bounded, convergent, null, and bounded variation sequences, which are the Banach spaces with the sup-norm and , while is not a Banach space with respect to any norm, respectively, where . Also by , we denote the space of all -absolutely summable sequences, which is a Banach space with the norm , where .

Let be an infinite matrix of complex numbers , where , and write where denotes the subspace of consisting of for which the sum exists as a finite sum. For simplicity in notation, here and in what follows, the summation without limits runs from to , and we will use the convention that any term with negative subscript is equal to naught. More generally if is a normed sequence space, we can write for the for which the sum in (2.8) converges in the norm of . We write for the space of those matrices which send the whole of the sequence space into in this sense.

We give a short survey concerning the spectrum and the fine spectrum of the linear operators defined by some particular triangle matrices over certain sequence spaces. The fine spectrum of the Cesàro operator of order one on the sequence space studied by González [19], where . Also, weighted mean matrices of operators on have been investigated by Cartlidge [20]. The spectrum of the Cesàro operator of order one on the sequence spaces and investigated by Okutoyi [8, 21]. The spectrum and fine spectrum of the Rhally operators on the sequence spaces , , , , and were examined by Yıldırım [9, 2228]. The fine spectrum of the difference operator over the sequence spaces and was studied by Altay and Başar [12]. The same authors also worked the fine spectrum of the generalized difference operator over and , in [29]. The fine spectra of over and studied by Kayaduman and Furkan [30]. Recently, the fine spectra of the difference operator over the sequence spaces and studied by Akhmedov and Başar [31, 32], where is the space of -bounded variation sequences and introduced by Başar and Altay [33] with . Also, the fine spectrum of the generalized difference operator over the sequence spaces and determined by Furkan et al. [34]. Recently, the fine spectrum of over the sequence spaces and has been studied by Furkan et al. [35]. Quite recently, de Malafosse [11] and Altay and Başar [12] have, respectively, studied the spectrum and the fine spectrum of the difference operator on the sequence spaces and , , where denotes the Banach space of all sequences normed by , . Altay and Karakuş [36] have determined the fine spectrum of the Zweier matrix, which is a band matrix as an operator over the sequence spaces and . Farés and de Malafosse [37] studied the spectra of the difference operator on the sequence spaces , where denotes the sequence of positive reals and is the Banach space of all sequences normed by with . Also the fine spectrum of the same operator over and has been studied by Bilgiç and Furkan [13]. More recently the fine spectrum of the operator over and has been studied by Bilgiç and Furkan [38]. In 2010, Srivastava and Kumar [16] have determined the spectra and the fine spectra of generalized difference operator on , where is defined by and for all , under certain conditions on the sequence , and they have just generalized these results by the generalized difference operator defined by for all , (see [18]). Altun [39] has studied the fine spectra of the Toeplitz operators, which are represented by upper and lower triangular -band infinite matrices, over the sequence spaces and . Later, Karakaya and Altun have determined the fine spectra of upper triangular double-band matrices over the sequence spaces and , in [40]. Quite recently, Akhmedov and El-Shabrawy [15] have obtained the fine spectrum of the generalized difference operator , defined as a double band matrix with the convergent sequences and having certain properties, over the sequence space . Finally, the fine spectrum with respect to the Goldberg's classification of the operator defined by a triple band matrix over the sequence spaces and with has recently been studied by Furkan et al. [14]. At this stage, Table 2 may be useful.

In this paper, we study the fine spectrum of the generalized difference operator defined by an upper double sequential band matrix acting on the sequence spaces with respect to the Goldberg's classification. Additionally, we give the approximate point spectrum, defect spectrum, and compression spectrum of the matrix operator over the spaces . We quote some lemmas, which are needed in proving the theorems given in Section 3.

Since , then there exists such that with , for all , Therefore, where Then, and so But there exist and a real number such that for all . Then, for all . Hence, . This shows that . Similarly, we can show that . By Lemma 2.4, we have Hence, is onto. By Lemma 3.5, is bounded inverse. This means that Combining this with Theorem 3.3 and Theorem 3.7, we get and again from Theorem 3.3   and . Since the spectrum of any bounded operator is closed, we have
Combining (3.31) and (3.32), we get

Theorem 3.9. Let in or . .
