Abstract: Consider the Hill operator $ L(v) = - d^2/dx^2 + v(x) $ on $ [0,\pi ]$ with Dirichlet, periodic or antiperiodic boundary conditions; then for large enough $ n$ close to $ n^2 $ there are one Dirichlet eigenvalue $ \mu _n$ and two periodic (if $ n$ is even) or antiperiodic (if $ n$ is odd) eigenvalues $ \lambda _n^-, \lambda _n^+ $ (counted with multiplicity).

We describe classes of complex potentials $ v(x)= \sum \nolimits _{\kern 1pt 2\mathbb{Z}} V(k) e^{ikx}$ in weighted spaces (defined in terms of the Fourier coefficients of $ v$) such that the periodic (or antiperiodic) root function system of $ L(v) $ contains a Riesz basis if and only if

$\displaystyle V(-2n) \asymp V(2n)$$\displaystyle \quad \text {as}~n \in 2\mathbb{N}~(\text {or}~n \in 1+ 2\mathbb{N}),\quad n \to \infty .$

For such potentials we prove that $ \lambda _n^+ - \lambda _n^- \sim \pm 2\sqrt {V(-2n)V(2n)}$ and

$\displaystyle \mu _n - \frac {1}{2}(\lambda _n^+ + \lambda _n^-) \sim -\frac {1}{2} (V(-2n) + V(2n)).$
