# Local Operators and Forms

Local Operators and Forms Let $$a:\,V\times V \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$$ be a continuous, coercive form where V is a Hilbert space, densely and continuously embedded into L 2(Ω). Denote by T the associated semigroup on L 2(Ω). We show that T consists of multiplication operators if and only if V is a sublattice with normal cone and $$a(u^+, \, u^-)\,=\,0 \quad (u \in V)$$ We also prove a vector-valued version of this result.

### Abstract

Let $$a:\,V\times V \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$$ be a continuous, coercive form where V is a Hilbert space, densely and continuously embedded into L 2(Ω). Denote by T the associated semigroup on L 2(Ω). We show that T consists of multiplication operators if and only if V is a sublattice with normal cone and $$a(u^+, \, u^-)\,=\,0 \quad (u \in V)$$ We also prove a vector-valued version of this result. For this we characterize multiplication operators $$M:\, L^p(\Omega,E) \rightarrow L^p(\Omega,E)$$ by locality. If Ω has no atoms, we show that each local, linear mapping is automatically continuous
