This talk introduces a functional model for symmetric operators based on the representation theory developed by Krein and Strauss. Such model allows one to make use of results and techniques in de Branges space and the moment problem theories to study the spectral properties of the selfadjoint extensions of a given symmetric operator. By this approach, necessary and sufficient conditions for a discrete set to be the spectrum of a singular Schrödinger operator are obtained. The stability of these conditions is studied when an eigenvalue is added to the spectrum.

Joint work with Rafael del Rio (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) and Julio H. Toloza (Universidad Nacional del Sur, Argentina).
