Differential operators on equivariant vector bundles over symmetric spaces
Anton Deitmar
Abstract:
Generalizing the algebra of motioninvariant differential
operators on a symmetric space we study invariant operators on
equivariant vector bundles. We show that the eigenequation is
equivalent to the corresponding eigenequation with respect to
the larger algebra of all invariant operators. We compute the
possible eigencharacters and show that for invariant integral
operators the eigencharacter is given by the Abel transform.
We show that sufficiently regular operators are surjective,
i.e. that equations of the form
are solvable for all
.
