    Abstract

    In this paper we consider the eigenvalues of a class of non-local differential operators. The real eigenvalues of certain examples of these operators have previously been plotted (as functions of a fundamental parameter in the operator), using appropriate computer software. Here we show how the complex eigenvalues of such operators may also be plotted. We use the plots of both the real and the complex eigenvalues to motivate a number of new theoretical results regarding the structure of the spectrum, which we subsequently prove under suitable hypotheses.
