Elliptic theory on manifolds with corners. I: Dual manifolds and pseudodifferential operators. (English) Zbl 1205.58017
Burghelea, Dan (ed.) et al., \(C^*\)-algebras and elliptic theory II. Selected papers of the international conference, Bȩdlewo, Poland, January 2006. Basel: Birkhäuser (ISBN 978-3-7643-8603-0/hbk). Trends in Mathematics, 183-206 (2008).
Summary: In this first part of the paper, we define a natural dual object for manifolds with corners and show how pseudodifferential calculus on such manifolds can be constructed in terms of the localization principle in \(C^*\) algebras. In the second part [ibid., 207–226 (2008; Zbl 1205.58018)], these results will be applied to the solution of Gelfand’s problem on the homotopy classification of elliptic operators for the case of manifolds with corners.
