### Between Being a Connection and Being an Elliptic Operator

Let $E$ be a smooth complex vector bundle over a smooth compact manifold $M$ and let $H$ be the $Z_{2}$-graded (with the $Z_{2}$-grading given by even/odd forms) Hilbert space of $L_{2}$ (with respect ...

### Does hypoellipticity imply the existence of a parametrix?

Let $M$ be a smooth manifold, like $\mathbb{R}^n$ for instance. The existence of a parametrix for an operator $P$ on $C^\infty(M)$ in any reasonable pseudodifferential calculus implies that $P$ is ...

### Do pseudo-differential operators preserve smoothness without compact support assumption?

I've been reading Lawson's book, Spin Geometry recently. In this book, a pseudo-differential operator is defined as a linear map on Schwartz space $P\colon \mathcal{S} \longrightarrow \mathcal{S} $ by ...

### Closure of pseudodifferential operators of order 0 on compact manifolds

Let $M$ be a compact manifold. If we have a pseudodifferential operator $P$ of order $0$ on $M$, then $P$ is pseudolocal, i.e., every commutator $[f,P]$ with a continuous function $f \in C(M)$ is a ...

### Order of metaplectic operator

I have a weak background on this subject.
Suppose $S$ be a $2m \times 2m$ symplectic matrix of order $n$. Suppose $W_S$ be the corresponding metaplectic operator on $\mathcal{S}(\mathbb{R}^m)$, the ...

### Show that a very regular kernel $k(x,y)$ has operator $K : \mathcal{E}'(\Omega) \to \mathcal{D}'(\Omega)$ which is pseudo-local

I am reading Francois Treves' Introduction to pseduodifferential and Fourier integral operators, vol. I. I am having trouble understanding the proof of Lemma 2.1, which is stated as follows.
Let $\...

### Extension of a bounded operator on manifold

I have a problem, which is quite urgent, as I have only today discovered an error in a proof i had in a thesis which is to be handed in tomorrow.
The problem, if stated in as full generality as ...

### Schwartz kernel of a pseudodifferential operator with singular symbols

If we have a smooth symbol $r(x,\xi)$ of order $d$ the corresponding pseudodifferential operator $P$ is integral operator with kernel given by
$$K(x,y)=\int_{\mathbb{R}^n}e^{i(x-y)\cdot \xi} r(x,\xi)...

### Looking for some “nontrivial” examples of pseudodifferential operators/symbols

I'm reading up on $\Psi DO$'s and trying to find some examples of symbols that are not quite so trivial.
Obviously, the first example of a symbol that most people talk about is just a polynomial in $\...

Let $A$ be a second-order differential operator on a closed manifold $M$ satisfying
$$(Au,u) \geq 0$$
with $A=-\Delta$ the Laplace-Beltrami the model case. One can define for $s \in (0,1)$ the ...

### Recursive formula for symbol of resolvent on noncompact manifold

On a compact Riemannian manifold $(M,g)$ without boundary it was shown (by R. Seeley) how to define the complex power of an elliptic classical pseudodifferential operator $A$ of positive order $m$: ...
