### Which sections of $T^*M\odot T^*M$ have reproducing kernel “primitives”?

Given a smooth reproducing kernel $\kappa:M\times M\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ on a manifold $M$, we can construct a section, $\alpha_{\kappa}$, of the symmetric tensor product $T^*M\odot T^*M$ by taking ...

### The log kernel and Bochner Theorem

I was wondering if it possible to find a measure $\eta$ on $\mathbb{R}$ such that
$$
L(x):=\log\frac{1}{|x|}=\int e^{itx}\;d\eta(t)
$$
for every $x\in [0,1/2]$.
On a structural ground, this ...

### Measurability for disintegration of a kernel

Let $(x, A) \mapsto P(x, A)$ be a probability kernel whose "target" (wikipedia terminology) is a product space $Y \times Z$, and say both $Y$ and $Z$ are compact metric spaces. For every $x$ there is ...

### Gaussian upper bounds on Heat kernel

Let $M$ be a complete Riemannian manifold with Ricci curvature bounded below and let $k(t, x, y)$ be the heat kernel of the Laplace-Beltrami operator.
It seems to be standard that for any compact ...

### Cameron-Martin like RKHS

Hello,
I know that $k(x,y)=min(x,y)$ is the reproducing kernel of the Cameron Martin space of all i.i.d. RVs of Brownian motion at different times, with the $cov$ inner product.
What is the RKHS ...
