Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to prove that the spectrum of the non-self-adjoint one-particle Hamiltonian proposed by J.~Feinberg and A.~Zee (Phys.\ Rev.\ E 59 (1999), 6433--6443) has interior points. We do this by first recalling that the spectrum of this random operator is the union of the set of $\ell^\infty$ eigenvalues of all infinite matrices with the same structure. We then construct an infinite matrix of this structure for which every point of the open unit disk is an $\ell^\infty$ eigenvalue, this following from the fact that the components of the eigenvector are polynomials in the spectral parameter whose non-zero coefficients are $\pm 1$'s, forming the pattern of an infinite discrete Sierpinski triangle.
