The algebra of Calderón-Zygmund kernels on a homogeneous group is inverse-closed

  • Paweł Głowacki


We show that the subalgebra of convolution operators with Calderón-Zygmund kernels on a homogeneous group G is inverse-closed in the algebra of all bounded linear operators on the Hilbert space L 2(G). The main tool used is a symbolic calculus, where the convolution of distributions on the group is translated via the abelian Fourier transform into a “twisted product” of symbols on the dual to the Lie algebra g of G.
