Non-positivity of the semigroup generated by the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator

Non-positivity of the semigroup generated by the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator By analysing some explicit examples we investigate the positivity and the non-positivity of the semigroup generated by the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator associated with the operator $$\varDelta +\lambda I$$ Δ + λ I as $$\lambda $$ λ varies. It is known that the semigroup is positive if $$\lambda <\lambda _1$$ λ < λ 1 , where $$\lambda _1$$ λ 1 is the principal eigenvalue of $$-\varDelta $$ − Δ with Dirichlet boundary conditions. We show that it is possible for the semigroup to be non-positive, eventually positive or positive and irreducible depending on $$\lambda >\lambda _1$$ λ > λ 1 . http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Positivity Springer Journals

Abstract

By analysing some explicit examples we investigate the positivity and the non-positivity of the semigroup generated by the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator associated with the operator $$\varDelta +\lambda I$$ Δ + λ I as $$\lambda $$ λ varies. It is known that the semigroup is positive if $$\lambda <\lambda _1$$ λ < λ 1 , where $$\lambda _1$$ λ 1 is the principal eigenvalue of $$-\varDelta $$ − Δ with Dirichlet boundary conditions. We show that it is possible for the semigroup to be non-positive, eventually positive or positive and irreducible depending on $$\lambda >\lambda _1$$ λ > λ 1 .
