Eigenvalue-eigenfunction problem for Steklov's smoothing operator and differential-difference equations of mixed type

Serguei I. Iakovlev
Valentina Iakovleva

Abstract. It is shown that any \(\mu \in \mathbb{C}\) is an infinite multiplicity eigenvalue of the Steklov smoothing operator \(S_h\) acting on the space \(L^1_{loc}(\mathbb{R})\). For \(\mu \neq 0\) the eigenvalue-eigenfunction problem leads to studying a differential-difference equation of mixed type. An existence and uniqueness theorem is proved for this equation. Further a transformation group is defined on a countably normed space of initial functions and the spectrum of the generator of this group is studied. Some possible generalizations are pointed out.

Keywords: Steklov's smoothing operator, spectrum, eigenvalues, eigenfunctions, mixed-type differential-difference equations, initial function, method of steps, countably normed space, transformation group, generator.

Mathematics Subject Classification: 47A75, 34K99.
