Title: A factorization method for non-symmetric linear operator: enlargement of the functional space while preserving hypo-coercivity
Speaker: Maria Pia Gualdani
Speaker Info: University of Texas at Austin
Brief Description:
Special Note:

We present a factorization method for non-symmetric linear operators: the method allows to enlarge functional spaces while preserving spectral properties for the considered operators. In particular, spectral gap and related convergence towards equilibrium follow easily by hypo-coercivity and resolvent estimates. Applications of this theory on several kinetic equations will be presented.
