The first step in the counting operator analysis of the spectrum of any model Hamiltonian H is the choice of a Hermitean operator M in such a way that the third commutator with H is proportional to the first commutator. Next one calculates operators R and R which share some of the properties of creation and annihilation operators, and are such that M becomes a counting operator. The spectrum of H is then decomposed into multiplets, not determined by symmetries of H, but by those of a reference Hamiltonian Href, which is defined by Href=H−R−R, and which commutes with M. Finally, we introduce the notion of stable eigenstates. It is shown that under rather weak conditions one stable eigenstate can be used to construct another one.
