Without loss of generality, we assume that λ0 = 0. First we consider the case of a simple zero. For y ∈ SH2 and z ∈ C we define gy (λ, z) := (Ax0 , x0 ) − λ D(y0 + zy), y0 + zy − λ(y0 + zy, y0 + zy) − B(y0 + zy), x0 Cx0 , y0 + zy . Then gy (λ, 0) = ∆(x0 , y0 ; λ) and gy (·, z) is a quadratic polynomial in λ. 3) 2 + B(y0+zy), x0 Cx0 , y0+zy (Ax0 , x0 ) D(y0+zy), y0+zy − + ; 2 2(y0 + zy, y0 + zy) 4(y0 + zy, y0 + zy) here the branch of the square root is chosen such that λy (0) = 0. Obviously, λy (t) ∈ σp (Ax0 ,y0 +ty ) ⊂ W 2 (A) for real t ∈ U and, by assumption, λy (0) = 0 is a corner of W 2 (A).
