### The contractivity of the time derivative of the heat semigroup in $L^p$ spaces

Let $M$ be a complete manifold. The heat semigroup $e^{-tL}$ is bounded on $L^p(M)$, for any $1 \leq p \leq \infty$; see this for instance. It seems that we can deduce the time derivative of the heat ...

### Semigroup property in SPDEs

In fact, we know that a bounded linear operators on a Banach space $X$ satisfies the semigroup property, i.e. $$S(t+s)=S(t)S(s), \text{for every}\ t,s\geq 0.$$ However, in various literatures, I ...

### A question about semigroups in a Heisenberg group

I'm trying to understand if the regularity of solutions in Heisenberg groups works like in the Euclidean case. So far I haven't found any results, so I'm trying to check if the Regularity Theorems ...

### Algebra core for generator of Dirichlet form

This is a question about the existence of a core $C$ for the generator $A$ of a regular Dirichlet form $\mathcal{E}$ having a carré du champ $\Gamma$, so that $C$ is an algebra with respect to ...

### Reference/Help request for formula $[A,e^{-itB}]$ found in physics thread

I'm wondering if anyone has a rigorous reference or a proof of the formula (2) found in the main answer of this thread on the physics stack exchange. I want to use it but in the case where $A, B$ are ...

### Strong positivity of Neumann Laplacian

There are many places in the literature where the positivity of some semigroups is treated. However I did not know anyone which states and proves the strong positivity even for the basic semigroups ...

### Integral operator (compactness)

I am studying the compactness of some convolution operators. Let the convolution $$\Gamma: X\longrightarrow X; x\mapsto\int_0^t T(t-s)B(s)x\mathrm{d}s.$$ Here $T(\cdot)$ is a $C_0$-semigroup on some ...

### The inversion of the Laplacian transform Pazy's Book "semigroups of linear operators and applications to Partial differential equations"

This question has been posted on Math Stack Exchange but no reply, and so I have to put it here. My question is: In Pazy's Book page 26, the author gives a proof of Lemma 7.1, the lemma 7.1 says that: ...

### "Open systems" version of Stone's Theorem for one-parameter groups of quantum operations

Let $H$ be a Hilbert space, which we interpret as a space of quantum states. If $U(t):H\to H$ is a unitary norm-continuous one-parameter group with $U(0)=I$, (essentially) Cauchy's functional ...

### What's the name of this semi-group theorem?

I encountered this theorem, that for a bounded linear transform $L$ and a real parameter $t$ and initial data $u_0$, we have $$\frac{d}{dt} \exp(Lt)[u_0] = L \exp(Lt)[u_0].$$ What is the name of this ...

### Reference on (semi)group generated by nonlinear map

Let $X$ be a Banach space and $A : X \rightarrow X$ a map which is not necessarily linear. I am interested in solutions to the problem of finding a family $(y(t))_{t \in \mathbb{R}}$ (or $t \geq 0$) ...
