Abstract

We consider the family of arithmetical matrices given explicitly by
$$
E=\left\{\frac{[n,m]^t}{(nm)^{(\rho+t)/2}}\right\}_{n,m=1}^\infty
$$
where $[n,m]$ is the least common multiple of $n$ and $m$ and the real parameters $\rho$ and $t$ satisfy
$t>0$, $\rho>t+1$. We prove that $E$ is a compact self-adjoint operator on $\ell^2(\bbN)$ with infinitely many of both positive and negative eigenvalues.
Furthermore, we prove that the ordered sequence of positive eigenvalues of $E$ obeys the asymptotic relation
$$
\lambda^+_n(E)=\frac{\varkappa}{n^{\rho-t}}(1+o(1)), \quad n\to\infty,
$$
with some $\varkappa>0$ and the negative eigenvalues obey the same relation, with the same asymptotic coefficient $\varkappa$.
We also indicate a connection of the spectral analysis of $E$ to the theory of Beurling primes.
