1. Eigenvalues of Operators with Analytic Coefficients

Let $a(x,\xi)$ be an analytic symbol defined on an appropriate $2$-dimensional phase. We are interested in the distribution of eigenvalues of $a^w(x,hD)$, the Weyl-quantization of $a(x,\xi)$, in the semi-classical limit as $h \rightarrow 0^+$.
    1. Eigenvalues and Curves

      Problem 1.1.

      Do the eigenvalues of $a^w(x,hD)$ lie on or cluster around curves in the complex plane $\mathbb{C}$?
        • Bohr-Sommerfeld

          Problem 1.2.

          Is there a Bohr-Sommerfeld quantization rule for $a^w(x,hD)$? Is there a link to the usual Bohr-Sommerfeld rule for Hermitian operators?
            • A non-Hermitian Operator from Physics

              Problem 1.3.

              What is the distribution of eigenvalues of the non-Hermitian Hamiltonian \[ H = \omega a^\dagger a + \chi (a^\dagger a)^2 - i \gamma a a^\dagger + \beta (a^\dagger + a)? \] Here $a$ and $a^\dagger$ are the raising and lowering operators respectively and $\omega$, $\chi$, $\gamma$, and $\beta$ are real parameters.
