We prove that a certain non-self-adjoint differential operator admits factorization, and we apply this new representation of the operator to explicitly construct its domain. We also show that the operator is J-self-adjoint in a Krein space.

On montre qu’un certain opérateur non autoadjoint admet une factorisation et, on utilise cette représentation pour construire explicitement son domaine. On montre aussi que cet opérateur est J-autoadjoint dans un espace de Krein.
