A Note on Harnack Inequalities and Propagation Sets for a Class of Hypoelliptic Operators

Abstract [en]

In this paper we are concerned with Harnack inequalities for non-negative solutions u:Ω→ℝ to a class of second order hypoelliptic ultraparabolic partial differential equations in the form Lu:=∑j=1mX2ju+X0u−∂tu=0 where Ω is any open subset of ℝN + 1, and the vector fields X1, ..., Xm and X0t are invariant with respect to a suitable homogeneous Lie group. Our main goal is the following result: for any fixed (x0, t0) ∈ Ω we give a geometric sufficient condition on the compact sets K⊆Ω for which the Harnack inequality supK u≤CK u(x0, t0) holds for all non-negative solutions u to the equation Lu=0. We also compare our result with an abstract Harnack inequality from potential theory.
