On the essential self-adjointness of Ornstein-Uhlenbeck operators perturbed by inverse-square potentials

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this note we give sufficient conditions for the essential self-adjointness of some Kolmogorov operators perturbed by singular potentials. As an application we show that the space of test functions $C_c^∞(R^N \backslash \{0\})$ is a core for the operator $Au= Δu-Bx∇u+\frac{c}{|x|^2} u=:Lu+\frac{c}{|x|^2} u, u ∈ C_c^∞(R^N \backslash \{0\}),$ in $L^2(R^N,\mu)$ provided that $c\le \frac{(N-2)^2}{4}-1$. Here $B$ is a positive definite $N\times N$ hermitian matrix and $\mu$ is the unique invariant measure for the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck operator $L$.
