Estimates for derivatives of the Green functions on homogeneous manifolds of negative curvature
R. Urban


Abstract.  We consider the Green functions $\mathcal G$ for second-order coercive differential operators on homogeneous manifolds of negative curvature, being a semi-direct product of a~nilpotent Lie group $N$ and $A=\R^+$.

Estimates for derivatives of the Green functions $\mathcal G$ with respect to the $N$ and $A$-variables are obtained. This paper completes a previous work of the author (see \cite{pota, ejde}) where estimates for derivatives of the Green functions for the noncoercive operators has been obtained. Here we show how to use the previous methods and results from \cite{pota} in order to get analogous estimates for coercive operators.
