We investigate the compactness of the resolvent of the Schrodinger operator acting on the Banach space ,
, where denotes the ground state for acting on . The potential , bounded from below, is a "relatively small" perturbation of a radially symmetric potential which is assumed to be monotone increasing (in the radial variable) and growing somewhat faster than as . If is the ground state energy for , i.e. , we show that the operator is not only bounded, but also compact for . In particular, the spectra of in and coincide; each eigenfunction of belongs to , i.e., its absolute value is bounded by .
