Pseudodifferential operators with generalized symbols and regularity theory. (English) Zbl 1087.35102
The authors study an equation of the form \[ a_\varepsilon(x,D)u_\varepsilon= f_\varepsilon, \] where \(a_\varepsilon(x,D)\) is a pseudodifferential operator with amplitude \(a_\varepsilon(x,\xi)\) depending on a singular parameter \(\varepsilon\to 0+,\) where the point of view is that of asymptotic analysis. In this setting, they develop a full symbol-calculus (with formal-series expansions of symbols) for pseudodifferential operators acting on algebras of Colombeau generalized functions. The calculus allows them to construct parametrices and obtain hypoellipticity results for generalized pseudodifferential equations.
