Construction of Sobolev spaces of fractional order with sub-riemannian vector fields

Sami Mustapha, François Vigneron (2007)

Annales de l’institut Fourier

Given a smooth family of vector fields satisfying Chow-Hörmander’s condition of step 2 and a regularity assumption, we prove that the Sobolev spaces of fractional order constructed by the standard functional analysis can actually be “computed” with a simple formula involving the sub-riemannian distance.Our approach relies on a microlocal analysis of translation operators in an anisotropic context. It also involves classical estimates of the heat-kernel associated to the sub-elliptic Laplacian.

Differential geometrical relations for a class of formal series

Alexandr Baranovitch (1997)

Banach Center Publications

An extension of the category of local manifolds is considered. Instead of smooth mappings of neighbourhoods of linear spaces as morphisms we deal with formal operator power series (or formal maps). Analogues of the objects appearing on smooth manifolds and vector bundles (vector fields, sections of a bundle, exterior forms, the de Rham complex, connection, etc.) are considered in this way. All the examinations are carried out in algebraic language, for we do not care about the convergence of formal...

Equivalence problem for minimal rational curves with isotrivial varieties of minimal rational tangents

Jun-Muk Hwang (2010)

Annales scientifiques de l'École Normale Supérieure

We formulate the equivalence problem, in the sense of É. Cartan, for families of minimal rational curves on uniruled projective manifolds. An important invariant of this equivalence problem is the variety of minimal rational tangents. We study the case when varieties of minimal rational tangents at general points form an isotrivial family. The main question in this case is for which projective variety Z , a family of minimal rational curves with Z -isotrivial varieties of minimal rational tangents...
