The e stimates can be viewed as a natural quadratic form version of the celebrated Temple –Kato inequ ality.

Then we are in the position to make use of Temple’s inequality similarly as in the case of alloy type potentials.
Lifshitz tails for a class of Schr\"odinger operators with random breather-type potential
We derive two estimates which will be later needed for Temple’s inequality.
Lifshitz tails for a class of Schr\"odinger operators with random breather-type potential
The bounds on the first and second moment derived above are used on one hand to show that Temple’s inequality is at all applicable, and on the other hand to insert them into the inequality to obtain an appropriate lower bound.
Lifshitz tails for a class of Schr\"odinger operators with random breather-type potential
It seems that the reason why the method of [KV] is not applicable to the potential (3) is the use of Temple’s inequality [Tem28].
