# Elliptic pseudodifferential operator estimate [closed]

If $P$ is an elliptic pseudodifferential operator of order 1 in the sense that its principal symbol is invertible, then we have the a priori estimate

$\|u\|_{H^1(U)} \le C (\|Pu\|_{L^2(W)} + \|u\|_{L^2(W)}), \quad (C>0 \text{ a constant})$

for any $\overline{U}\subset W\subset \mathbb{R}^n$ with $W$ bounded. Say I'm only interested in an upper bound of $\|u\|_{L^2(U)}$. Then the term $\|u\|_{L^2(W)}$ on the right hand side above feels a bit redundant. Can I obtain

$\|u\|_{L^2(U)} \le C\|Pu\|_{L^2(W)} \quad \text{?}$

The answer to your question is no. Take any non-injective operator $P.$
