Abstract
This work develops a scattering and an inverse scattering theory for the Sturm–Liouville equation −u″+qu=λwu where w may change sign but q⩾0. Thus the left-hand side of the equation gives rise to a positive quadratic form and one is led to a left-definite spectral problem. The crucial ingredient of the approach is a generalized transform built on the Jost solutions of the problem and hence termed the Jost transform and the associated Paley–Wiener theorem linking growth properties of transforms with support properties of functions. One motivation for this investigation comes from the Camassa–Holm equation for which the solution of the Cauchy problem can be achieved by the inverse scattering transform for [Formula].
