Some investigations on Feller processes generated by pseudo-differential operators. / Bjorn Bottcher

Swansea University Author: Bjorn Bottcher

Abstract

Introducing an appropriate symbolic calculus for non-classical real-valued symbols, so-called negative definite symbols, W. Hoh succeeded to prove that such operators generate often Feller semigroups. In a first part of this thesis we extend this result to complex-valued symbols. Further, using idea...
