Classes of (non-continuous) functions with the fixed point property

Let $K$ be a convex body in $R^d$. (Say, a ball, say a cube...) For which classes $\cal C$ of functions, every function $f \in {\cal C}$ which takes $K$ into itself admits a fixed point in $K$. ...

Invariant definition of the space of symbols on a vector bundle (pseudo-differential operators)

Normally, in the context of pseudo-differential operators, a symbol on a vector bundle $E$ is defined as a smooth function on $E$ which in each trivializing chart fulfills the usual symbol estimates ...

Parametrisations for Null Temperature Functions: nonuniqueness of solutions to the Heat Equation

Disclaimer I expect this is a highly open problem, but maybe I'm wrong and someone has come up with some answers besides those given here. In any case, all information appreciated, thanks! Definition ...

Deformation of the covariant Laplacian

Let $M$ be a Riemann surface and $P \to M$ a principal $G$-bundle (with compact structure group $G$). Fix a connection $A$ in $P$ and consider a nearby connection $B$, which is in Coulomb gauge ...

Why is it hard to obtain improved $L^6$ bound of eigenfunction of Laplacian on 2-dimensional compact Riemannian manifold?

Consider the $L^p$ estimate of the Laplacian on a compact boundaryless Riemannian manifold, suppose that $-\Delta_ge_{\lambda}=\lambda^2e_\lambda(x), x\in M$. C.D. Sogge proved that we have the ...

Have heat kernels for generalized Laplacians on non-compact manifolds been constructed?

Let $M$ be a non-compact Riemannian manifold which is "nice enough", and $D$ a generalized Laplacian on it. The construction of the heat kernel for the Laplace-Beltrami operator on $M$ seems to be ...

Dual of $BV_0(\Omega)$

It is previously pointed out in Dual or pre-dual of BV that the dual of $BV_c(\Omega)$ (BV functions with essentially compact support in $\Omega$) are so called strong charges, i.e. distributions for ...

Has anyone studied a transport equation of this form?

Let $L\colon \mathbb{R}^2 \times \mathbb{R}^+\to \mathbb R$ satisfy $$\frac{\partial L}{\partial t} (x,t) = \max\left\{ \frac{\partial L}{\partial x_1}, \frac{\partial L}{\partial x_2} \right\}$$ ...

Methods of variational calculus in analytic number theory

What methods of calculus of variations have been used in analytic number theory? I mean do Hamilton-Jacobi theory of PDE found usage in analytic number theory, which raises yet another question has ...

The Spectrum of certain differential operators

We fix a Hilbert space isomorphism $\phi:H^{1}\to H^{2}$. Here by $H^{s},\;s=1,2,\;$ we mean the sobolev space on $\mathbb{R}^{2}$ or $S^{2}$. We consider the following polynomial vector field on ...

Difference between parallel transport composed with exponential maps along two different geodesics starting at the same point?

I asked this question on math.stackexchange too: it's not a homework problem, but something that came to my mind while thinking of commutation: ...
Local version of the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev theorem for Riesz potentials: $\|I_\alpha(f)\|_{L^q} \le C \|f\|_{L^p}$?
Recently, I have been studying the properties of the Riesz potential $$I_\alpha(f)(x) = c_{d,\alpha} \int_{\mathbb R^d} \frac{f(y)}{|x-y|^{d-\alpha}} \, dy.$$ The classical Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev ...
