A representation of operators in L#(<>) which commute with translation by one in terms of L#(0, 1) operator valued functions of <>. In a subsequent study, this representation is used to employ perturbation techniques, heretofore applicable only to operators with compact ret ret resolvents, to nonself adjoint differential operators with periodic coefficients on L#(<>), and to give conditions on the coefficients of these operators which ensure that they be spectral (completely reducible) even though they have continuous spectrum.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
