Abstract : The report considers the nonlinear eigenvalue problem (A  B(lambda))x = 0 in a Hilbert space, where A = or > 0 is compact and B(lambda) is a polynomial with nonnegative operator coefficients, satisfying B(0) = 0. It is shown that if A and B(lambda) are in certain operator classes, then there exists an unconditional basis of the Hilbert space consisting of eigenvectors x corresponding to nonnegative eigenvalues lambda. It is also shown that the nonnegative eigenvalues can be characterized by variational principles. (Author)
