Pseudo-Differential Operators of Principal Type

  • Lars Hörmander
Part of the Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften book series (CLASSICS)

Summary

In Section 10.4 we saw that the strength of a differential operator with constant coefficients in ℝ n is determined by the principal part p if and only if p=0 implies dp≠0 in ℝ n \0. Such operators were said to be of principal type. The purpose of this chapter is to study general operators PΨ phg m (X) on a manifold X assuming that the condition dp ≠0 when p =0 is valid in a suitably strengthened form which makes the properties of p independent of lower order terms.
