Complex powers of differential operators on manifolds with conical singularities

  • Paul Loya


We construct the complex powersA z for an elliptic cone (or Fuchs type) differential operatorA on a manifold with boundary. We show thatA z exists as an entire family ofb-pseudodifferential operators. We also examine the analytic structure of the Schwartz kernel ofA z , both on and off the diagonal. Finally, we study the meromorphic behavior of the zeta function Tr(A z ).
