    Estimates for functions of the Laplacian on manifolds with bounded geometry

    Full text link
    In this paper we consider a complete connected noncompact Riemannian manifold M with Ricci curvature bounded from below and positive injectivity radius. Denote by L the Laplace-Beltrami operator on M. We assume that the kernel associated to the heat semigroup generated by L satisfies a mild decay condition at infinity. We prove that if m is a bounded holomorphic function in a suitable strip of the complex plane, and satisfies Mihlin-Hormander type conditions of appropriate order at infinity, then the operator m(L) extends to an operator of weak type 1. This partially extends a celebrated result of J. Cheeger, M. Gromov and M. Taylor, who proved similar results under much stronger curvature assumptions on M, but without any assumption on the decay of the heat kernel.Comment: 19 page

    Partial symmetry and existence of least energy solutions to some nonlinear elliptic equations on Riemannian models

    Get PDF
    We consider least energy solutions to the nonlinear equation −Δgu=f(r,u)-\Delta_g u=f(r,u) posed on a class of Riemannian models (M,g)(M,g) of dimension n≥2n\ge 2 which include the classical hyperbolic space Hn\mathbb H^n as well as manifolds with unbounded sectional geometry. Partial symmetry and existence of least energy solutions is proved for quite general nonlinearities f(r,u)f(r,u), where rr denotes the geodesic distance from the pole of MM

    Higher order Riesz transforms on noncompact symmetric spaces

    Full text link
    In this note we prove various sharp boundedness results on suitable Hardy type spaces for Riesz transforms of arbitrary order on noncompact symmetric spaces of arbitrary rank.Comment: v2: the first version has been revised and splitted up in two papers, of which this new version is one par

    A family of Hardy-type spaces on nondoubling manifolds

    Get PDF
    We introduce a decreasing one-parameter family Xγ(M) , γ> 0 , of Banach subspaces of the Hardy–Goldberg space h1(M) on certain nondoubling Riemannian manifolds with bounded geometry, and we investigate their properties. In particular, we prove that X1 / 2(M) agrees with the space of all functions in h1(M) whose Riesz transform is in L1(M) , and we obtain the surprising result that this space does not admit an atomic decomposition

    Maximal characterisation of local Hardy spaces on locally doubling manifolds

    Get PDF
    We prove a radial maximal function characterisation of the local atomic Hardy space h1(M) on a Riemannian manifold M with positive injectivity radius and Ricci curvature bounded from below. As a consequence, we show that an integrable function belongs to h1(M) if and only if either its local heat maximal function or its local Poisson maximal function is integrable. A key ingredient is a decomposition of Hölder cut-offs in terms of an appropriate class of approximations of the identity, which we obtain on arbitrary Ahlfors-regular metric measure spaces and generalises a previous result of A. Uchiyama

    Analysis on Trees with Nondoubling Flow Measures

    Get PDF
    We consider trees with root at infinity endowed with flow measures, which are nondoubling measures of at least exponential growth and which do not satisfy the isoperimetric inequality. In this setting, we develop a Calderón–Zygmund theory and we define BMO and Hardy spaces, proving a number of desired results extending the corresponding theory as known in more classical settings

    BMO Spaces on Weighted Homogeneous Trees

    Get PDF
    We consider an infinite homogeneous tree V endowed with the usual metric d defined on graphs and a weighted measure μ. The metric measure space (V, d, μ) is nondoubling and of exponential growth, hence the classical theory of Hardy and BMO spaces does not apply in this setting. We introduce a space BMO(μ) on (V, d, μ) and investigate some of its properties. We prove in particular that BMO(μ) can be identified with the dual of a Hardy space H1(μ) introduced in a previous work and we investigate the sharp maximal function related with BMO(μ)
