Analytic solution of a compact operator eigenvector (integral equation)

In Sewall Wright's Evolution of Mendalian Population, the equation for the nonrecurrent mutation is $$\frac{\phi(x)}n = \binom n {nx}\int_0^1 q^{nx}(1-q)^{n(1-x)}\phi(q)\,dq,\quad \forall x\in[0,1],$$ ...

Compactly supported elliptic operators

Let $N,n>0$. Suppose $$D: C^\infty_c(\mathbb{R}^n, \mathbb{R}^N)\to C_c^\infty(\mathbb{R}^n,\mathbb{R}^N)$$ is an elliptic differential operator of degree one. Construct its corresponding degree ...

Operational quantities characterizing upper semi-Fredholm operators

An operator $T:X\rightarrow Y$ is said to be upper semi-Fredholm if its range is closed and its kernel is finite-dimensional. M. Schechter (1972) introduced a quantity $$\nu(T):=\sup_{\operatorname{...

Generalizations of Sard-Smale Theorem

Sard-Smale theorem holds for Fredholm maps $f:M\rightarrow B$ between separable Banach manifolds $M,N$. There are some constrains relating the Fredholm index $\operatorname{ind}(f)$ of $f$ to its ...

Eigenvalues of an integral operator

Let $K\in L^2((0,1)\times(0,1))$ and consider the operator defined in $L^2(0,1)$ by $$Lu(x):=u(x)-\int_0^1K(s,x)u(s)ds.$$ What kind of assumption might I impose on $K$ such that $\lambda=1$ will be ...

Index of the Fredholm operator

I have two vector bundles $E_1$, $E_2$ over $M$ and an embedding of the smooth sections $\lambda : \Gamma(M, E_1) \rightarrow \Gamma(M, E_1 \oplus E_2)$. I consider a Fredholm differential operator $...

Fredholm elements of a Lie algebra

An element $a$ of a Lie algebra $L$ is called a Fredholm element if the adjoint operator $\mathrm{ad}_a:L \to L$ is a Fredholm linear map. That is: its kernel is a finite-dimensional space and its ...
