We present an introduction (also for nonexperts) to a new framework for the analysis of (up to) second order differential operators (with merely measurable coefficients and in possibly infinitely many variables) on L²spaces via associated bilinear forms. This new framework, in particular, covers both the elliptic and the parabolic case within one approach. To this end we introduce a new class of bilinear forms, socalled generalized Dirichlet forms, which are in general neither symmetric nor coercive, but still generate associated C0 semigroups. Particular examples of generalized Dirichlet forms are symmetric and coercive Dirichlet forms (cf. [FOT], [MR1]) as well as time dependent Dirichlet forms (cf. [O1]). We discuss many applications to differential operators that can be treated within the new framework only, e.g. parabolic differential operators with unbounded drifts satisfying no L p conditions, singular and fractional diffusion operators. Subsequently, we analyz...
Quasiregular Dirichlet forms: Examples and counterexamples
, 1993
"... We prove some new results on quasiregular Dirichlet forms. These include results on perturbations of Dirichlet forms, change of speed measure, and tightness. The tightness implies the existence of an associated right continuous strong Markov process. We also discuss applications to a number of exam ..."

We prove some new results on quasiregular Dirichlet forms. These include results on perturbations of Dirichlet forms, change of speed measure, and tightness. The tightness implies the existence of an associated right continuous strong Markov process. We also discuss applications to a number of examples including cases with possibly degenerate (sub)elliptic part, diffusions on loops spaces, and certain FlemingViot processes.
On the Local Property for Positivity Preserving Coercive Forms
, 1995
"... . We show that, under mild conditions, two wellknown definitions for the local property of a Dirichlet form are equivalent. We also show that forms that come from di#erential operators are local. 1991 AMS Subject Classification: 31C25 The purpose of this paper is to clarify the relationship between ..."

. We show that, under mild conditions, two wellknown definitions for the local property of a Dirichlet form are equivalent. We also show that forms that come from di#erential operators are local. 1991 AMS Subject Classification: 31C25 The purpose of this paper is to clarify the relationship between two di#erent notions of locality that have appeared in the literature of Dirichlet forms. The first is a slightly modified version of the definition of locality found in the book of Bouleau and Hirsch [BH 91; Chapter I, Corollary 5.1.4], while the second comes from the book of Ma and Rockner [MR 92; Chapter V, Proposition 1.2]. But here we do not assume that the form satisfies any normal contraction property, but only that it is positivity preserving (see Definition 0.1 below). Let (E, F , m) be a measure space, and suppose (E , D(E)) is a densely defined, closed, bilinear form on L 2 (E, F , m). Following [MR 92], we call such a form (E , D(E)) coercive if E(u, u) # 0 for all u ...

We prove that for a certain class of bilinear forms satisfying some regularity conditions which include quasiregular Dirichlet forms (cf. [3]) and time dependent Dirichlet forms (cf. [5]) as particular cases there exists an associated strong Markov process having nice sample path properties. These forms, called generalized Dirichlet forms, are the sum of a coercive part and a perturbation (e.g. the time derivative in the time dependent case), so that in general neither the sector condition is fulfilled by the sum nor is the associated L 2 semigroup analytic. A wide variety of new examples can be treated in this extended framework of Dirichlet forms including fractional diffusion operators and transformations of time dependent Dirichlet forms by ffexcessive functions h (htransformations).

We extend the framework of classical Dirichlet forms to a class of bilinear forms, called generalized Dirichlet forms, which are the sum of a coercive part and a linear unbounded operator as a perturbation. The class of generalized Dirichlet forms, in particular, includes symmetric and coercive Dirichlet forms (cf. [Fu2], [M/R]) as well as time dependent Dirichlet forms (cf. [O1]) as special cases and also many new examples. Among these are, e.g. transformations of time dependent Dirichlet forms by ffexcessive functions h (htransformations), Dirichlet forms with time dependent linear drift and fractional diffusion operators. One of the main results is that we identify an analytic property of these forms which ensures the existence of associated strong Markov processes with nice sample path properties, and give an explicit construction for such processes. This construction extends previous constructions of the processes in the elliptic and the parabolic cases, is, in particular, c...

This paper consists of lectures given at the C.I.M.E. summer school on Kolmogorov equations held at Cetraro in 1998. The purpose of these lectures was to present an approach to Kolmogorov equations in infinite dimensions which is based on an L p ()analysis of the corresponding diffusion operators w.r.t. suitably chosen measures. The main ideas and aims are explained, and an as complete as possible presentation is given of what has been achieved in this respect over the last few years.

We give a (to some extent pedagogical) survey on recent results about Dirichlet forms on infinitedimensional "manifoldlike" state spaces including path and loop spaces as well as spaces of measures. The latter are associated with interacting FlemingViot processes resp. infinite particle systems. Also some new results, further developing the Dirichlet form approach to infinite particle systems, are enclosed. Finally, a brief summary of other research activities in the theory of Dirichlet forms is given and some prospects for the future are indicated.
