The aim of this work is to develop a localization technique and to establish a regularity result for non-local integro-differential operators $${\fancyscript{L}}$$ of order $${\alpha\in (0,2)}$$ . Thereby we extend the De Giorgi�Nash�Moser theory to non-local integro-differential operators. The operators $${\fancyscript{L}}$$ under consideration generate strong Markov processes via the theory of Dirichlet forms. As is well known, regularity properties of the resolvents are important for many aspects of the corresponding stochastic process. Therefore, this work is related to probability theory and analysis, especially partial differential equations, at the same time.

    We obtain upper and lower bounds of the exit times from balls of a jump-type symmetric Markov process. The proofs are delivered separately. The upper bounds are obtained by using the Lévy system corresponding to the process, while the precise expression of the ( L2-)generator of the Dirichlet...

    We examine the three-step master equation from the standpoint of the general solution of the associated discrete Riccati equation. We report by this means stationary master solutions depending on a free constant parameter, denoted by D, that should be negative in order to assure the positivity...

    The probabilistic machinery (Central Limit Theorem, Feynman-Kac formula and Girsanov Theorem) is used to study the homogenization property for PDE with second-order partial differential operator in divergence-form whose coefficients are stationary, ergodic random fields. Furthermore, we use the...

    For each n let $${Y^{(n)}_t}$$ be a continuous time symmetric Markov chain with state space $${n^{-1} \mathbb{Z}^d}$$ . Conditions in terms of the conductances are given for the convergence of the $${Y^{(n)}_t}$$ to a symmetric Markov process Y t on $${\mathbb{R}^d}$$ . We have weak convergence...

    new method of finding transition probabilities per collision from a set of transition rates per unit time is proposed. The problem is solved by introducing a normalization function that is easily derived from a recursion equation. The solution of recursion equation is obtained in the analytical...
