Abstract: We consider the Laplace operator in a planar waveguide, i.e. an infinite two-dimensional straight strip of constant width, with Robin boundary conditions. We study the essential spectrum of the corresponding Laplacian when the boundary coupling function has a limit at infinity. Furthermore, we derive sufficient conditions for the existence of discrete spectrum.
Keywords: planar waveguide; discrete spectrum; Robin boundary conditions
