## Abstract

One technique for studying the approach to equilibrium of a continuous time Markov process is to consider the restriction to the L^2 space of an invariant distribution. When the process is reversible with respect to this distribution, the generator is a selfadjoint operator. We study the L^2 spectrum of the generator for certain random walks on Z^d, where the reversible invariant distribution is concentrated near the origin and decays rapidly with distance to the origin. For the related diffusions on R^d we find that the generators are unitarily equivalent to Schrödinger operators.
