Gevrey Local Solvability for Degenerate Parabolic Operators of Higher Order

  • Alessandro Oliaro
  • Petar Popivanov


In this paper we study the local solvability in Gevrey classes for degenerate parabolic operators of order ≥ 2. We assume that the lower order term vanishes at a suitably smaller rate with respect to the principal part; we then analyze its influence on the behavior of the operator, proving local solvability in Gevrey spaces Gs for small s, and local nonsolvability in Gs for large s.
