Spectrum for compact operators on Banach spaces
For a two-sided sequence of compact linear operators acting on a Banach space, we consider the notion of spectrum defined in terms of the existence of exponential dichotomies under homotheties of the dynamics. This can be seen as a natural generalization of the spectrum of a matrix—the set of its eigenvalues. We give a characterization of all possible spectra and explicit examples of sequences for which the spectrum takes a form not occurring in finite-dimensional spaces. We also consider the case of a one-sided sequence of compact linear operators.
