Compactness and Density Estimates for Weighted Fractional Heat Semigroups

  • Jian Wang


We prove that the operator \(L_0=-(1+|x|)^\beta (-\Delta )^{\alpha /2}\) with \(\alpha \in (0,2)\), \(d>\alpha \) and \(\beta \ge 0\) generates a compact semigroup or resolvent on \(L^2(\mathbb {R}^d;(1+|x|)^{-\beta }\,\mathrm{d}x)\), if and only if \(\beta >\alpha \). When \(\beta >\alpha \), we obtain two-sided asymptotic estimates for high-order eigenvalues, and sharp bounds for the corresponding heat kernel.
