Abstract: If $ M_n$ is a compact Riemannian manifold for which $ H^1(M_n,\mathbb{Z})=0$, $ V$ is a continuous complex valued function whose imaginary part is of constant sign, and $ -\Delta \psi +V\psi =0$ for some $ C^2$ complex valued function $ \psi $ on $ M_n$, then either $ \psi $ vanishes somewhere or there is a constant $ c$ and an everywhere positive function $ F$ such that $ \psi =cF$.
