Spectral cluster estimates for \(C^{1,1}\) metrics. (English) Zbl 1284.35149
Summary: In this paper, we establish \(L^p\) norm bounds for spectral clusters on compact manifolds, under the assumption that the metric is \(C^{1,1}\). Precisely, we show that the \(L^p\) estimates proven by Ch. D. Sogge [J. Funct. Anal. 77, No. 1, 123–138 (1988; Zbl 0641.46011)] in the case of smooth metrics hold under this limited regularity assumption. It is known by examples of Smith-Sogge [the author and Ch. D. Sogge, Math. Res. Lett. 1, No. 6, 729–737 (1994; Zbl 0832.35018)] that such estimates fail for \(C^{1,\alpha}\) metrics if \(\alpha < 1\).
