Hardy’s inequality for the fractional powers of the Grushin operator

  • Rakesh BalharaEmail author


We prove Hardy’s inequality for the fractional powers of the generalized subLaplacian and the fractional powers of the Grushin operator. We also find an integral representation and a ground state representation for the fractional powers of the generalized subLaplacian.
