Kolmogorov equations in Rd with unbounded coefficients

Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 1762)


In this chapter we are concerned with the following class of second order elliptic operators
$$ \mathcal{L}_0 (x,D) = \sum\limits_{i,j = 1}^d {a_{ij} (x)D_{ij} + \sum\limits_{i = 1}^d {b_i (x)D_{i, } x\varepsilon \mathbb{R}^d } } $$
The vector field b = (b,...,b d) : ℝd → ℝd is of class C 3 and the matrix a(x) = [a ij(x)] is symmetric, strictly positive and of class C 3, so that it can be written as a(x) = ½σxσ* x, x∈ℝd, for some function σ : ℝd → ℒ(ℝd) of class C 2 (in fact, we can take σ = √a). Both b and a are assumed to have polynomial growth and 6 enjoys some dissipativity conditions which will be described in more details later on. Our aim is to prove the existence and the uniqueness of solutions for the elliptic and the parabolic problems associated with the operator ℒ0. Moreover, we want to give optimal regularity results in the space of bounded Holder continuous functions (Schauder type estimates).
