### Generalization of Borel functional calculus

[Repost from https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/4802593/generalization-of-borel-functional-calculus] Let $A$ be a normal operator on a Hilbert space $V$. The continuous functional calculus gives ...

### Resolvent estimates for Laplacians on directed graphs

Let us consider a directed and weighted graph $G$ with $N = |G|$ nodes. Denote the corresponding (weighted) adjacency matrix by $W \in \mathbb{R}^{N\times N}_{\geq 0}$ and let $D$ be the diagonal in-...

### A gap in the proof of uniqueness of functional calculus based on a spectral theorem

This question considers the proof of a fundamental theorem of functional calculus, given in the book Spectral Theory - Basic Concepts and Applications by David Borthwick (Theorem 5.9). Firstly we have ...

### "Trade-off" between bound on the function and on the spectrum for functional calculus in spectral theory

Let $A$ be a self-adjoint (unbounded) operator on a separable Hilbert space $H$. From the following form of spectral theorem, we may define a functional calculus by $f(A)=Q^{-1} M_{f\circ \alpha} Q$. (...

### “Taylor series” is to “Volterra series” as “Padé approximant” is to _________?

Padé approximants are often better than Taylor series at representing a function. Given a Taylor series, one can use Wynn's epsilon algorithm to easily produce the Padé approximants to it. Volterra ...

### Linear independence of functions

Let $x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_n\in\mathbb{R}^d$ be points so that no one point is in the positive span of another. That is, there is no pair of points $x_i,x_j$ such that $x_i=\alpha x_j$ for a positive ...

### Reference on iterated integrals against projection valued measures

I know (to some extent) how integration over $\mathbb{R}$ of a Borel-measurable function against a projection-valued measure works. Recently while reading a paper I came across calculations in which ...

### The imaginary exponential of a tangent field on a manifold

If $M$ is a compact Riemannian manifold and $X$ is a tangent field, I am seeking to define the object $\exp {\mathrm i t X}$ for $t \in \mathbb R$, and I do not know how to do it. One option was to ...

### Does Borel functional calculus commute with *-isomorphism?

I am confused with the underlined equation in the following picture. I know that a *-isomorphism commutes with continuous functional calculus since every continuous functions on the compact subset of ...

### For $B=\int \lambda d E_\lambda$ and $X$ commutes with every $E_\lambda$, why $BX$ is positive and self-adjoint?

Let $B$ be an unbounded closed operator on a Hilbert space $H$. If $B=\int \lambda d E_\lambda$ is positive self-adjoint and a positive bounded operator $X$ commutes with every $E_\lambda$, then why ...

### Variation in Einstein-Hilbert action [closed]

In this page there are calculations of variation of Einstein-Hilbert action. I see variations of terms like this: $\delta {R^{\rho }}_{{\sigma \mu \nu }}$ where the term is not a functional, and ...

### Do Degree Zero Pseudo-Differential Operators on a Manifold Send Smooth Functions to Smooth Functions?

I'm not an analyst, so forgive me if what I'm asking is not suitable for Mathoverflow. For convenience, let $X$ be a compact complex manifold, and $E$ a holomorphic vector bundle on $X$. Let $H$ be ...

### Reference Request: Calculus of Variations in Hilbert Space

I'm looking for a good reference to a book on calculus of variations in the setting of Banach Spaces. If it helps, I'm working with a particular functional acting on Fr\'{e}chet-differentiable ...

Let $A$ be a closed self-adjoint operator on a Hilbert space $H$, possibly unbounded and hence defined on a dense domain $D(A) \subset H$. It is well known that integrating the resolvent \$R_z = (z I - ...
