### Abstract

We give a general analysis of a class of pairs of positive self-adjoint operators A and B for which A + XB has a limit (in strong resolvent sense) as h-10 which is an operator A, # A! Recently, Klauder [4] has discussed the following example: Let A be the operator-(d2/A2) + x2 on L2(R, dx) and let B = 1 x 1-s. The eigenvectors and eigenvalues of A are, of course, well known to be the Hermite functions, H,(x), n = 0, l,... and E, = 2n + 1. Klauder then considers the eigenvectors of A + XB (A> 0) by manipulations with the ordinary differential equation (we consider the domain questions, which Klauder ignores, below). He finds that the eigenvalues E,(X) and eigenvectors &(A) do not converge to 8, and H, but rather AO) + (en 4 Ho+, J%(X)-+ gn+1 I n = 0, 2,..., We wish to discuss in detail the general phenomena which Klauder has uncovered. We freely use the techniques of quadratic forms and strong resolvent convergence; see e.g. [3], [5]. Once one decides to analyze Klauder’s phenomenon in the language of quadratic forms, the phenomenon is quite easy to understand and control. In fact, the theory is implicit in Kato’s book [3, VIII.31.
