### Green's kernel estimates on finitely generated groups

I was reading a paper by W. Hebisch and L. Saloff-Coste titled "Gaussian Estimates for Markov Chains and Random Walks on Groups" where I came to know about certain bounds on convolution ...

### The existence of a positive Green function for the Laplacian on $\mathbb R$

One can show explicitly and easily that the function $G(x,y) = \frac 1 2 |x-y|$ is a positive Green function for the Laplacian $\frac {\mathrm d ^2} {\mathrm d x ^2}$ on $\mathbb R$ (endowed with the ...

### Existence of Green functions and some properties

Let $\Omega$ be a smooth domain in $\mathbb{R}^N$， $N\geq 3$, $p\in \Omega$ is a fixed point, $\lambda$ is a parameter (can be 0,>0,<0), if there exisits a Green function $G_{\lambda}(x,p)$ ...

### Heat conduction type equation in 4D

[I asked a similar question, Linear PDE, analytic continuation, Green's function and boundary conditions, and was told that a follow-up question should be a separate post.] I'm interested in a ...

### Linear PDE, analytic continuation, Green's function and boundary conditions

I'm looking at the linear PDE in 3+1 dimensions, $$\left[ -(\partial_t - \xi)^2 - \partial_k \partial_k \right] \phi(t,x) = 4\pi^2 \delta(t)\delta(x)\label{1} \tag{1}$$ Where $\xi$ is generally a ...

### Behavior of Green's function $G(x)$ for $x\to 0$ for general second order PDE

Let's have a generic elliptic second order PDE in $n$-dimensions with a Dirac delta on the right hand side $$\left( a_{ij}(x) \partial_i \partial_j + b_j(x) \partial_j + c(x) \right) G(x) = \delta(x)$$...

### Propagators and PDEs

I have already asked this at MSE but did not get an answer. In quantum field theory one encounters the retarded, advanced and Feynman propagators as certain solutions to a wave equation. ...

### Green potential and Hölder continuity

Assume that $U$ is the unit disk and $g\in L^{3/2}(U)$. Define $$f(z) = \int_{U} \log\left|\frac{z-w}{1-z\bar w}\right|g(w)\frac{du \, dv}{\pi}, \ \ w=u+iv.$$ Is there an elementary proof of the fact ...

### Numerical methods for evaluating singular integrals

The Helmholtz decomposition for a vector field B contains both volume integrals and two boundary integrals (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helmholtz_decomposition). For brevity I show just one of the ...

### Singularity of reproducing kernel for elliptic operator

Let $(M,g)$ be a smooth compact Riemannian manifold and dimension $2$, $\Gamma$ a smooth vector bundle over $M$, and suppose $L: W^{k,2}(\Gamma)\to W^{k-2,2}(\Gamma)$ is a second order strongly ...

### Green function of the triangular kernel?

What is the green function of the triangular kernel $K$: $$K(x,y)=1-|x-y|$$ where $x,y\in R$ such that $|x-y|<1$?

### Proving the exponential decay of Green's function for the lattice $-\Delta+p$

The Green function $G(x,y) =G(x-y)$ of the discrete Klein-Gordon operator $-\Delta+p$ on $\mathbb{Z}^{d}$ is given by: \begin{eqnarray} G(x-y) = \int_{[-\pi,\pi]^{d}}\frac{d^{d}k}{(2\pi)^{d}}\frac{e^{...

### When are Green's functions causal convolution kernels

Let $L$ be a linear differential operarator acting on distributions over $\mathbb{R}$ and $G(t, s)$ be a Green's function, i.e., a solution to $LG(t, s) =\delta(t-s)$. $G$ is said to be causal if \$G(...
