  • Scattering system, scattering matrix, boundary triplet, Titchmarsh-Weyl function, spectral shift function, Krein-Birman formula


For scattering systems consisting of a (family of) maximal dissipative extension(s) and a selfadjoint extension of a symmetric operator with finite deficiency indices, the spectral shift function is expressed in terms of an abstract Titchmarsh-Weyl function and a variant of the Birman-Krein formula is proved.
