Title: Self-adjoint extensions via boundary triples (part II)

Abstract: To better understand self-adjoint extensions of symmetric operators via boundary triples (and associated topics such as Krein resolvent formula), we will consider how this theory works for matrices. The analog of a symmetric operator is a rectangular matrix. Because its domain isn't dense, its adjoint is not a matrix but must be interpreted as a linear relation. With this understanding, the rest of the theory follows. Some interesting links emerge, for example the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map is a Schur complement in the matrix case.

In the first part we reviewed the general theory. In the second we will play with the simple example of linear operators on C^3 (i.e. 3x3 matrices).
