MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Differentiable $L^p$-functional calculus for certain sums of non-commuting operators

Michael Gnewuch


We consider a special class of sums of non-commuting positive operators on $L^2$-spaces and derive a formula for their holomorphic semigroups. The formula enables us to give sufficient conditions for these operators to admit differentiable $L^p$-functional calculus for $1\leq p \leq \infty$. Our results are in particular applicable to certain sub-Laplacians, Schrödinger operators and sums of even powers of vector fields on solvable Lie groups with exponential volume growth.
