### What are dissipative PDEs?

I often come across the term dissipative (partial) differential equation in mathematical articles, especially in the context of hypocoercivity and entropy methods. I now have an intuitive idea of ​​...

### Is a differential operator $\frac{1}{2}\frac{d^{2}}{dx^{2}} - a x^{b} \frac{d}{dx}$ well-known?

I would like to know if the following differential operator on $(0,\infty)$ is well-known or derived from such one: \begin{align} L := \frac{1}{2}\frac{d^{2}}{dx^{2}} - a x^{b} \frac{d}{dx} \quad (a,b ...

### Reference request: inverse of differential operators

I have asked a similar question on MSE but I did not receive any replies, so I am reposting here in case it is more appropriate (though I have slightly generalized the question). As an example ...

### Lumer-Phillips-type theorem for non-autonomous evolutions

The classical Lumer-Phillips theorem characterizes the generators of contraction semigroups. I am looking for a similar characterization or at least a sufficient condition for a family of unbounded, ...

### Coordinate free computation of the second derivative of a functional [closed]

Let $F(g(f))$ be a functional that sends functions of a vector variable (from $n$-dimensional vector space) to $\mathbb R$. $g$ is some function of scalar valued functions $f$. I'm interested in a ...

### Diagonalizing selfadjoint operator on core domain

Let $A$ be a densely-defined, positive, self-adjoint operator with compact resolvent on a Hilbert space $H$. Then, $\text{Range}(1+A)=H$ and there is a basis for $H$ consisting of eigenvectors of $1+A$...

### A mapping property for fractional Laplace--Beltrami operator

Suppose that $g$ is a smooth Riemannian metric on $\mathbb R^3$ that is equal to the Euclidean metric outside the unit ball. Let us define the fractional Laplace--Beltarmi operator on $\mathbb R^3$ of ...

### Ideals whose alebraic variety is a singleton

I do not work in algebra, so i apologize in advance if there are some unclear/wrong sentences. Let us consider the ring $\mathbb{C}[X_1,\ldots,X_q]$ of polynomials in $q$ variables. For an ideal $I$ ...

### Künneth formula and continuity of the isomorphism

In the book Sheaf Theory, by Bredon (edition from 1997), Theorem 14.1, he writes a natural exact sequence, which, in some nice cases, leads to the Künneth formula. Do we have any reason to believe ...

### Hodge decomposition in elliptic complexes

EDIT: In the book "Principles of Algebraic Geometry" by Griffiths and Harris the authors prove the Hodge decomposition for the Dolbeault operator $\bar\partial$ on differential forms on a ...

### Looking for a paper on (formally) self-adjoint differential operators

This is a long shot, but I've about lost my mind over this. About a year ago, I came across a paper published in the last 20-30 years (as it was neatly typeset in modern $\rm\LaTeX$ styles) that ...

### Hodge decomposition for non-elliptic complexes

It is a well-known result that there is a bijective correspondence between harmonic sections and cohomology classes of an elliptic complex in a Riemannian/Hermitian manifold. Now consider Riemannian/...

### Solution of nonlinear differential equation $g = c_1 f^2 + c_2 (f')^2$ for function $f$

I would like to find an analytic solution (if possible) of the differential equation: $g = c_1 f^2 + c_2 (f')^2$ Where $c_1$ and $c_2$ are constants, $g$ is a known function of $x$, $f$ is another ...

### Approximating spectra of (finite rank pertubations of) Laurent operators by spectra of (pertubations of) periodic finite operators

A tridiagonal matrix is a matrix which only has elements on three diagonals. So for $\alpha, \beta, \gamma \in \mathbb{C}$ consider the bi-infinite tridiagonal Laurent operator $T$ with $\beta$ on ...

### Evaluate action of $f(\frac{d}{dx})$ using the Fourier/Laplace transform

Consider a function $f(x)$ that is numerically defined in $-1 \leq x \leq 1$ interval (assume $N$ samples). I am trying to compute the action of $f(d/dx)$ on a function $g(x)$ using the Fourier ...

### Kernel representation of a power of (pseudo-)differential operator

Let $\mathcal{T}$ be a (pseudo-)differential operator that admits the following kernel representation: $$\mathcal{T}f(x) = \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} K(x,t)f(t)dt.$$ What can ...

### Elliptic partial differential equations with Robin boundary condition and domain of fractional power of Robin Laplacian operator

This question has been posted on Mathematics Stack Exchange but got no response, and so I put it here. When I read the paper "On the attractor for a semilinear wave equation with critical ...
