Geometry and the Kato square root problem

Bandara, Lashi


The primary focus of this thesis is to consider Kato square root problems for various divergence-form operators on manifolds. This is the study of perturbations of second-order differential operators by bounded, complex, measurable coefficients. In general, such operators are not self-adjoint but uniformly elliptic. The Kato square root problem is then to understand when the square root of such an operator, which exists due to uniform ellipticity, is comparable to its unperturbed counterpart. A...[Show more]
