The paper is concerned with the derived functors \(Ext^ 1(E,.)\) of the functor L(E,.), E fixed, acting from the catogory of Fréchet spaces to the category of linear spaces with the condition that all exact sequences \[ 0\to F\to G\to E\to 0 \] split and with the applications of this functors.
In the first section the short introduction to the theory of the functors \(Ext^ 1(E,.)\) with special emphasis on the concrete representations for \(Ext^ 1(E,F)\) and the connecting maps in case E or F is nuclear. In the third section the extension of the Grothendieck result concerning elliptic operators, that a hypoelliptic partial differential operator on \({\mathbb{R}}^ n\) with constant coefficients has no right inverse in \(C^{\infty}(\Omega)\), \(\Omega \subset {\mathbb{R}}^ n\) open. In the last two sections is shown that the knowledge of condition \(Ext^ 1(E,F)=0\) can be used for the investigation of topological properties of spaces \(E_ b\otimes_{\pi}F=L_ b(E,F)\), E,F Fréchet spaces, one of them nuclear and the derived results are used for the investigation of the main problem.
