Linear operators generated by a countable number of quasi-differential expressions. (English) Zbl 1049.47043
The aim of this paper is the extension of the theory of linear ordinary quasi-differential operators (on spaces of locally integrable functions in the sense of Lebesgue) on a single interval of the real axis, to the case of operators when a finite number or a countable family of intervals is involved. The underlying spaces are not anymore Banach spaces, but locally convex linear topological spaces whose topology is defined by a countable family of seminorms. The quasi-differential operators are with variable coefficients. Interesting properties are obtained, using rather complex tools. Since any open set on \(\mathbb R\) can be represented as the union of a countable family of disjoint intervals, it means that the results are applicable whenever the coefficients of the quasi-differential operators are defined on an open set of \(\mathbb R\).
