Let V be a potential on R3 that is smooth everywhere except at a discrete set S of points, where it has singularities of the form Z/ 2, with (x) = |x − p| for x close to p and Z continuous on R3 with Z(p) > −1/4 for p 2 S. Also assume that and Z are smooth outside S and Z is smooth in polar coordinates around each singular point. We either assume that V is periodic or that the set S is finite and V extends to a smooth function on the radial compactification of R3 that is bounded outside a compact set containing S. In the periodic case, we let be the periodicity lattice and define T := R3/ . We obtain regularity results in weighted Sobolev space for the eigenfunctions of the Schr¨odinger-type operator H = − + V acting on L2(T), as well as for the induced k–Hamiltonians Hk obtained by restricting the action of H to Bloch waves. Under some additional assumptions, we extend these regularity and solvability results to the non-periodic case. We sketch some applications to approximation of eigenfunctions and eigenvalues that will be studied in more detail in a second paper.
