On nonnegative operators and fully cyclic peripheral spectrum
K.-H. Foerster and B. Nagy
In this note the properties of the peripheral spectrum of a nonnegative
linear operator A (for which the spectral radius is a pole of its resolvent)
in a complex Banach lattice are studied. It is shown, e.g., that the
peripheral spectrum of a natural quotient operator is always fully cyclic.
We describe when the nonnegative eigenvectors corresponding to the spectral
radius r span the kernel N(r-A). Finally, we apply our results to the
case of a nonnegative matrix, and show that they sharpen earlier results
by B.-S. Tam [Tamkang J. Math. 21:65-70, 1990] on such matrices and full
cyclicity of the peripheral spectrum.
