In this paper, we consider the fractional Laplacian −(−∆) α/2 on an open subset in R d with zero exterior condition. We establish sharp twosided estimates for the heat kernel of such Dirichlet fractional Laplacian in C 1,1 open sets. This heat kernel is also the transition density of a rotationally symmetric stable process killed upon leaving a C 1,1 open set. Our results are the first sharp twosided estimates for the Dirichlet heat kernel of a nonlocal operator on open sets.

In this paper, we derive global sharp heat kernel estimates for symmetric αstable processes (or equivalently, for the fractional Laplacian with zero exterior condition) in two classes of unbounded C 1,1 open sets in R d: halfspacelike open sets and exterior open sets. These open sets can be disconnected. We focus in particular on explicit estimates for pD(t, x, y) for all t> 0 and x, y ∈ D. Our approach is based on the idea that for x and y in D far from the boundary and t sufficiently large, we can compare pD(t, x, y) to the heat kernel in a well understood open set: either a halfspace or R d; while for the general case we can reduce them to the above case by pushing x and y inside away from the boundary. As a consequence, sharp Green functions estimates are obtained for the Dirichlet fractional Laplacian in these two types of open sets. Global sharp heat kernel estimates and Green function estimates are also obtained for censored stable processes (or equivalently, for regional fractional Laplacian) in exterior open sets.
Sharp heat kernel estimates for relativistic stable processes in open sets

In this paper, we establish sharp twosided estimates for the transition densities of relativistic stable processes (or equivalently, for the heat kernels of the operators m − (m 2/α − ∆) α/2) in C 1,1 open sets. The estimates are uniform in m ∈ (0,M] for each fixed M> 0. Letting m ↓ 0, the estim ..."

In this paper, we establish sharp twosided estimates for the transition densities of relativistic stable processes (or equivalently, for the heat kernels of the operators m − (m 2/α − ∆) α/2) in C 1,1 open sets. The estimates are uniform in m ∈ (0,M] for each fixed M> 0. Letting m ↓ 0, the estimates given in this paper recover the Dirichlet heat kernel estimates for −(−∆) α/2 in C 1,1open sets obtained in [9]. Sharp twosided estimates are also obtained for Green functions of relativistic stable processes in halfspacelike C 1,1 open sets and bounded C 1,1 open sets.
Boundary Harnack inequality for regional fractional Laplacian
"... We consider boundary Harnack inequalities for regional fractional Laplacian which are generators of censored stablelike processes on G taking κ(x, y)/x − y  n+α dxdy, x, y ∈ G, as the jumping measure. When G is a C 1,β−1 open set, 1 < α < β ≤ 2, and κ ∈ C 1 (G × G) bounded between two posit ..."

We consider boundary Harnack inequalities for regional fractional Laplacian which are generators of censored stablelike processes on G taking κ(x, y)/x − y  n+α dxdy, x, y ∈ G, as the jumping measure. When G is a C 1,β−1 open set, 1 < α < β ≤ 2, and κ ∈ C 1 (G × G) bounded between two positive numbers, we prove a boundary Harnack inequality giving dist(x, ∂G) α−1 order decay for harmonic functions near the boundary. For a C 1,β−1 open set D ⊂ D ⊂ G, 0 < α ≤ (1 ∨ α) < β ≤ 2, we prove a boundary Harnack inequality giving dist(x, ∂D) α/2 order decay for harmonic functions near the boundary. These results are generalizations of the previous results for the homogeneous case on C 1,1 open sets. The method in this paper can be applied to study more general Markov operators.

We survey the recent development of the DeGiorgiNashMoserAronson type theory for a class of symmetric jump processes (or equivalently, a class of symmetric integrodifferential operators). We focus on the sharp twosided estimates for the transition density functions (or heat kernels) of the processes, a priori Hölder estimate and parabolic Harnack inequalities for their parabolic functions. In contrast to the second order elliptic differential operator case, the methods to establish these properties for symmetric integrodifferential operators are mainly probabilistic.

Heat Kernel Estimate for ∆ + ∆ α/2 in C 1,1 Open Sets

We consider a family of pseudo differential operators { ∆ + a α ∆ α/2; a ∈ (0, 1]} on R d for every d ≥ 1 that evolves continuously from ∆ to ∆ + ∆ α/2, where α ∈ (0, 2). It gives rise to a family of Lévy processes {X a, a ∈ (0, 1]} in R d, where X a is the sum of a Brownian motion and an independent symmetric αstable process with weight a. We establish sharp twosided estimates for the heat kernel of ∆ + a α ∆ α/2 with zero exterior condition in a family of open subsets, including bounded C 1,1 (possibly disconnected) open sets. This heat kernel is also the transition density of the sum of a Brownian motion and an independent symmetric αstable process with weight a in such open sets. Our result is the first sharp twosided estimates for the transition density of a Markov process with both diffusion and jump components in open sets. Moreover, our result is uniform in a in the sense that the constants in the estimates are independent of a ∈ (0, 1] so that it recovers the Dirichlet heat kernel estimates for Brownian motion by taking a → 0. Integrating the heat kernel estimates in time t, we recover the twosided sharp uniform Green function estimates of X a in bounded C 1,1 open sets in R d, which were recently established in [14] by using a completely different approach.
Global Heat Kernel Estimates for Relativistic Stable Processes in Halfspacelike Open Sets

Abstract In this paper, by using probabilistic methods, we establish sharp twosided large time estimates for the transition densities of relativistic αstable processes with mass m ∈ (0, 1] (i.e., for the Dirichlet heat kernels of m − (m 2/α − �) α/2 with m ∈ (0, 1]) in halfspacelike C 1,1 open s ..."

Abstract In this paper, by using probabilistic methods, we establish sharp twosided large time estimates for the transition densities of relativistic αstable processes with mass m ∈ (0, 1] (i.e., for the Dirichlet heat kernels of m − (m 2/α − �) α/2 with m ∈ (0, 1]) in halfspacelike C 1,1 open sets. The estimates are uniform in m in the sense that the constants are independent of m ∈ (0, 1]. Combining with the sharp twosided small time estimates, established in Chen et al. (Ann Probab, 2011), valid for all C 1,1 open sets, we have now sharp twosided estimates for the transition densities of relativistic αstable processes with mass m ∈ (0, 1] in halfspacelike C 1,1 open sets for all times. Integrating the heat kernel estimates with respect to the time variable, one can recover the sharp twosided Green function estimates for relativistic αstable processes with mass m ∈ (0, 1] in halfspacelike C 1,1 open sets established recently

In this paper, we consider a large class of purely discontinuous rotationally symmetric Lévy processes. We establish sharp twosided estimates for the transition densities of such processes killed upon leaving an open set D. When D is a κfat open set, the sharp twosided estimates are given in terms of surviving probabilities and the global transition density of the Lévy process. When D is a C 1,1 open set and the Lévy exponent of the process is given by Ψ(ξ) = φ(ξ  2) with φ being a complete Bernstein function satisfying a mild growth condition at infinity, our twosided estimates are explicit in terms of Ψ, the distance function to the boundary of D and the jumping kernel of X, which give an affirmative answer to the conjecture posted in [16]. Our results are the first sharp twosided Dirichlet heat kernel estimates for a large class of symmetric Lévy processes with general Lévy exponents. We also derive an explicit lower bound estimate for symmetric Lévy processes on R d in terms of their Lévy exponents.
