Finite propagation speed for first order systems and Huygens’ principle for hyperbolic equations

McIntosh, Alan; Morris, Andrew J.


We prove that strongly continuous groups generated by first order systems on Riemannian manifolds have finite propagation speed. Our procedure provides a new direct proof for self-adjoint systems and allows an extension to operators on metric measure spaces. As an application, we present a new approach to the weak Huygens’ principle for second order hyperbolic equations.
