# Questions tagged [pseudo-differential-operators]

This tag is for questions regarding to the Pseudo-differential operator, acting on a space of functions on a differentiable manifold, that can locally be described by definite rules using a certain function. It satisfies estimates for the derivatives analogous to the estimates for derivatives of polynomials, which are symbols of differential operators.

### Fréchet-valued symbols

Denote by $S^m \left ( \mathbb{R}^k \times \mathbb{R}^n \right)$ the usual space of symbols. Now let $E$ be a Fréchet Space. We can then define $S^m \left ( \mathbb{R}^k \times \mathbb{R}^n; E \right)$...

Consider the operator $$(A_\Delta\psi)(p) = \int_\Delta \int_{\mathbb{R}^n} e^{ix\cdot(p-k) + i\phi(x,p,k)} a(x,p,k) \psi(k) dk\: dx$$ where $\Delta$ is a Borel or Lebegue set in $\mathbb{R}^n$, in ...

### Dirichlet-to-Neumann map is analytic

Let $M^n$, $n \geq 2$, be a compact smooth manifold with boundary and let $I \ni t \mapsto g_t$ be an analytic (with respect to t) $1$-parameter family of Riemannian metrics on $M$. For each $t \in I$,...

### Differential form of the multidimensional "orthogonal dilation" operator

For a one-dimensional $f(x)$, the dilation operator $f(ax)$ can be expressed as $\exp(g(D))f(x)$, where $g$ is a closed-form function. This is easily checked by e.g. formal Taylor series expansion. ...

### Real-analytic analogue of Schwartz functions

Consider the space $\mathcal{S}'$ of functions $\mathbb{R}^n\to\mathbb C$ that are (real-)analytic and with exponential decay at infinity. This is an analogue of Schwartz space, but real-analytic ...

### Given composition rules, determining whether a continuous map between smooth functions is a pseudodifferential operator

Let $M$ be a closed manifold, and let $P:C^{\infty}(M)\rightarrow C^{\infty}(M)$ be a continuous linear map in the smooth Fréchet topologies. In what is to come, if it helps, one can assume further ...

### Conormal distributions and the wave front set

Let $X$ be a smooth closed manifold and $Y$ a regular submanifold. For all conormal distributions at $Y$ on $X$, their wave front set is contained in the conormal bundle of $Y$. Is the reciprocal true?...

### Is there an easy explanation for the notion of Calderon projectors?

I recently stumbled upon the notion of Calderon projectors, which are standard tools for elliptic boundary value problems. However, when searching on the internet I could not really find any useful ...

### Does convolution by a Schwartz function preserve symbol classes?

I am working on a problem involving pseudodifferential operators, and I need a property of the operator "convolution by a Schwartz function". I apologize in advance if the question is ...

### Positivity of an operator on a compact subset of a manifold

Let $E$ and $F$ be two vector bundles over manifold $X$. Let $P:\Gamma(E)\to \Gamma(F)$ be a self-adjoint differential operator over $X$. Define inner product on the spaces $\Gamma(E)$ of smooth ...

### Symbol estimates using metric on the phase space

Consider the symbols introduced by Beals and Fefferman in which the symbol estimates are of the form: \tag{1} \label{eq1} |\partial_x^\beta\partial_\xi^\alpha a(x,\xi)| \leq C_{\...

Let assume that $u$ is smooth enough and $-\Delta (u \phi) \in L^1(\Omega)$ for any $\phi \in C_c^{\infty}(\Omega)$. Then it easily follows that $-\Delta u \in L^1_{\mathrm{loc}}(\Omega)$ by ...

### Holder continuity relative to Rellic-Kondrachov compactness via the nonlinear Aronsson operator

Connected to the question, Does Morrey's inequality contextually relate to Rellic-Kondrachov compactness? An analysis of the well-known nonlinear Aronsson operator gives $C^{(1, \frac{1}{3})}$ ...

### Does Morrey's inequality contextually relate to Rellic-Kondrachov compactness?

I have been reflecting on this question, and want to share my thinking thus far. I'd be grateful for the community's inputs. We refer to Morrey's inequality, Theorem 4 on pp 266 of Evan's book on PDE, ...

### Sobolev spaces and spectral theorem

Consider a generalised harmonic oscillator of the form $$A(x,D_x) = \langle x \rangle (1-\Delta_x)\langle x \rangle, \quad x \in \mathbb{R}^n,$$ where $\langle x \rangle = (1+|x|^2)^{1/2}.$ The ...
