The Fractional Laplacian: probabilistic structure and extension to Lovy Processes

Date: Mon, Jun 26 - Fri, Jun 30 2017

Hour: 10:00

Speakers: Krzysztof Bogdan, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology

DATES: 26-30 June 2017 (5 sessions)
TIME: 10:00 - 12:00 (a total of 10 hours)

We will discuss elements of the potential theory of the fractional Laplacian. We will construct from the first principles the semigroup of the operator and the corresponding stochastic process. We will define the Green function and Poisson kernel and show their interconnections. The underlying probabilistic structure allows for natural extensions to Lovy processes and further developments. I plan to discuss some of them with focus on the Lovy systems and on their application. If time allows, I will present applications to Fourier multipliers on Lp obtained via martingale transforms of Lovy processes.
