Hi PF(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have an operator in the set of indefinitely derivable functions on R^4.

How can we caracterize the operators which send f with supp f compact to a function with compact support?

My example uses the Klein Gordon operator K an its green's function adv and ret.

let us take f such that ##g_1 = \int ret. f ## and ##g_2 = \int adv. f##

K sends g1 to f and ret sends K(g1) to g2

does g1 -> g2 conserves compactness of supports?

thanks
