Part of the Pseudo-Differential Operators book series (PDO, volume 4)


To give an introduction to the contents of the book, let us consider initially the basic models to which our pseudo-differential calculus will apply, namely the linear partial differential operators with polynomial coefficients in ℝ d
$$ P = \sum {c_{\alpha \beta } x^\beta D^\alpha } , x \in \mathbb{R}^d , c_{\alpha \beta } \in \mathbb{C}, $$
where in the sum (α,β) ∈ ℕ d × ℕ d run over a finite subset of indices. A natural setting for P is given by the Schwartz space \( S\left( {\mathbb{R}^d } \right) \) and its dual \( S'\left( {\mathbb{R}^d } \right) \). These spaces are invariant under the action of the Fourier transform
$$ Fu\left( \xi \right) = \hat u\left( \xi \right) = \int {e^{ - ix\xi } u\left( x \right)d--x, } with d--x = \left( {2\pi } \right)^{ - \frac{d} {2}} dx. $$
Note also that the conjugation \( FPF^{ - 1} \) gives still an operator of the form (I.1).
