Operator theory of initial-value ODE problems

The theory of elliptic boundary value problems is usually treated from the perspective of functional analysis, and the theory of operators between Hilbert spaces. In contrast to that, the theory of ...

Product of positive commuting operators

Let $A$ and $B$ be positive commuting bounded operators on a Hilbert space. It can be shown by functional calculus that $AB=A^{1/2}BA^{1/2},$ so that $AB$ is again positive. If $A$ and $B$ are not ...

non-closed weak graph limit of symmetric operators

Hi Everyone, I was recently reading Reed & Simon's functional analysis textbook (the first volume), and it mentions casually on page 294 that weak graph limits of a sequence of symmetric ...

Core of divergence form operator with unbounded coefficient

Consider the unbounded operator $L$ on $L^2(\mathbb{R^d})$ to be the self-adjoint extension of $$Lf := \nabla \cdot \left(a(x) \nabla f(x) \right)$$ on $C^2_c(\mathbb{R^d})$. I also assume that ...

Invariant linear manifolds for multiplication by the independent variable in L^2 (R)

In general I am trying to determine when the self-adjoint operator $M$ of multiplication by the independent variable in $L^2 (\mathbb{R})$ has a symmetric restriction to a dense linear manifold ...
