On the spectral analysis of direct sums of Riemann-Liouville operators in Sobolev spaces of vector functions. (English) Zbl 1220.47009
Summary: Let \(J^{\alpha }_{k }\) be a real power of the integration operator \(J_{k }\) defined on the Sobolev space \(W ^{k } _{p }\)[0, 1]. We investigate the spectral properties of the operator \(A_{k} = \bigoplus^{n}_{j=1} \lambda_{j}J^{\alpha}_{k}\) defined on \(\bigoplus^{n}_{j=1}W^{k}_{p} [0, 1]\). Namely, we describe the commutant \(\{A _{k }\}^{\prime}\), the double commutant \(\{A_k\}^{\prime\prime}\) and the algebra \({\mathtt Alg}\, A _{k }\). Moreover, we describe the lattices \({\mathtt Lat}\, A _{k }\) and \({\mathtt HypLat}\, A _{k }\) of invariant and hyperinvariant subspaces of \(A _{k }\), respectively. We also calculate the spectral multiplicity \(\mu_{A_k}\) of \(A _{k }\) and describe the set \({\mathtt Cyc}\, A _{k }\) of its cyclic subspaces. In passing, we present a simple counterexample for the implication \[ {\mathtt HypLat}\,(A \oplus B) = {\mathtt HypLat}\, A \oplus {\mathtt HypLat}\, B \Rightarrow {\mathtt Lat}\,(A \oplus B) = {\mathtt Lat}\,A \oplus {\mathtt Lat}\,B \] to be valid.
