### Hörmander’s propagation of singularities in two variables

I am trying to apply the propagation of singularities theorem to a distribution $u \in D’(M \times M)$ that verifies $Pu = f$, with $P$ a linear differential operator and $f \in D’(M \times M)$, as ...

### What is the wavefront set of the characteristic function on a domain with $C^k$ boundary?

Based on Wavefront set of characteristic function of rough set. Let $\chi_K$ be the function equal to $1$ on $K$ where $K\subset\mathbb{R}^n$ of $C^k$-regularity . What is $WF(\chi_K)$?

### Conditions ensuring that the paraproduct remainder is well-defined

In short, my question is: are there conditions that one can impose on two tempered distributions $u$ and $v$ that will guarantee that the paraproduct remainder $R(u,v)$ is well-defined and is "...

### Sharpest version of semiclassical Calderon-Vaillancourt theorem

Let $S$ be the space of symbols defined by $$S:=\{a\in C^{\infty}(T^*\mathbb{R}^d):\forall \alpha,\beta\in\mathbb{Z}^d,\, |\partial_x^{\alpha}\partial_{\xi}^{\beta}a(x,\xi)|\le C_{\alpha\beta}\},$$ ...

Assume $u, v \in \mathcal{D}'(\mathbb{R}^n)$ are distributions with compact support. Denote by $\operatorname{WF}(\bullet) \subset T^*\mathbb{R}^n \setminus 0$ the wavefront set of a distribution $\... 3 votes 0 answers 95 views ### Definition clarification: "regular directed distributions" (I asked this question on math.stackexchange (see here) but didn't receive any reaction, hence I try it here. If it does not fit within here, just let me know in the comments.) In the definition of ... 4 votes 0 answers 63 views ### Local energy estimate in a semiclassical regime Let us consider$h_n=(2n+1)^{-1/2}\to 0$as$n\to \infty$be a small parameter, which we just write as$h$for convenience, and$u_h : \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}$be functions satisfying$Pu_h=0$(I ... 2 votes 0 answers 120 views ### Product of Heavisides: calculus vs Fourier transform vs wavefront set I decided to ask this question here, since I did not get any answer from MSE and perhaps this topic is somewhat far from MSE's topics. I am following the paper here. I am trying to understand how to ... 2 votes 2 answers 271 views ### Reference for commutator estimate I'm interested in Sobolev space estimates for commutators involving a pseudodifferential operator and a Fourier multiplier. More specifically, suppose$p = p(x,\xi) \in S_{1,0}^{m_1}$and let$q = q(\...

I recently came across the following generalization of the Darboux-Weinstein lemma: Let $N$ be a manifold endowed with two symplectic forms $\omega_1, \omega_2$, and let $P$ be a compact submanifold ...

### What role do semiclassical methods play in the study of Ginzburg--Landau-type equations?

As far as I understand, semiclassical limits are used in quantum mechanics to analyse equations that depend on a small parameter $\hbar$. Apparently studying properties of the PDE as $\hbar \to 0$ ...

### do hyperfunction solutions always exist?

I have two questions---the second question (which is what I'm really interested in) is a generalization of the first, but I think the first may be more likely to get an answer. I'll be happy with an ...

### Can the existence of geodesics be deduced from properties of the Laplacian?

As I understand it, the semiclassical trace formula in particular relates lengths of geodesics to eigenvalues of the Laplacian. Is it possible to prove that every compact Riemannian manifold has a ...

### Does the 'reproducing kernel formula' for a bounded open set $U$ define an equivalent norm on the Sobolev space $H^1_0(U)$

We refer to the 'reproducing convolution formula with a kernel' for an open bounded domain $U$ of $R^n$, $n \geq 2$ discussed in the paper of G. Talenti (Annali de Matematica, Dec 1976) on Best ...

### Bernoulli-like polynomials

Let $\psi_0 (x,t)=\frac{te^{xt}}{1-e^{-t}}$. Then $$\psi_0(0,t)=\frac{t}{1-e^{-t}};$$ $$\psi_0(x,t)=1+\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{t^n}{n!} B_n(x)$$ where $B_n$ is a monic polynomial of degree $n.$ Now ...

### Why do people study Weyl asymptotics and partial-spectral-projections?

The major focus of the research that my advisor has me doing centers around the idea of asymptotic behavior of partial-spectral-projections on compact manifolds. In a few sentences, here is the ...

### Wave front set and differential operator

A simple result of microlocal analysis would be, if P is a differential operator then $WF(Pu) \subseteq WF(u)$, where WF denotes the wave front set of the distribution. Can anyone give me an example ...

### Distribution boundary value of analytic function and wave front sets

Assume $f(z)$ is analytic in the tube domain $\mathbb R^n\oplus iC$, where $C\subset \mathbb R^n$ is a convex cone. Under the assumption $|f(x+iy)|\leq 1/|y|^k$, we know by a Theorem of Martineau (see ...

### How to understand the Fourier-Sato transform and microlocalization functors?

Given a smooth real vector bundle $\pi: E \to M$ I can look at the (bounded from below) derived category of sheaves on $E$. Since $E$ admits a very natural action of $\mathbb{R}^{\geq 0}$ by scaling, ...

### Kernel of the composition of operators

Let $X \subset \mathbb{R}^{n}$, $Y \subset \mathbb{R}^{m}$, and $Z \subset \mathbb{R}^{p}$ be open subsets, and let $K_P \in C_0^\infty(X \times Y)$ and $K_Q \in C_0^{\infty}(Y \times Z)$. Then, $K_P$ ...

### One-parameter unitary group preserving invariant domain of infinitesimal generator

Let $\mathcal{H}$ be a separable Hilbert space (e.g. $L^{2}(\mathbb{R}^{d}))$, and let $\mathcal{D}_{1}\subset\mathcal{H}$ be a dense subspace (e.g. $\mathcal{S}(\mathbb{R}^{d})$). Suppose that an ...
### Production of $H^s$ singularities in the strictly hyperbolic Cauchy problem
