Normalized System for the Super Laplace Operator

  • Yuying Qiao

In this paper, 0-normalized system for the super Laplace operator (that is Laplace operator in superspace) is established. According to this system, we obtain Almansi type decomposition of polyharmonic functions in superspace. Besides, we set up the relationship between the Riquier problem and the Dirichlet problem in superspace. In the end, the connection between harmonic functions and solutions to the Helmholtz equation in superspace is investigated.
