Abstract
Let M be a closed manifold and let CL•(M) be the algebra of classical pseudodifferential operators. The aim of this note is to classify trace functionals on the subspaces CLa(M) ⊂ CL•(M) of operators of order a. CLa(M) is a CL0(M)–module for any real a; it is an algebra only if a is a non–positive integer. Therefore, it turns out to be useful to introduce the notions of pretrace and hypertrace. ...
Abstract
Let M be a closed manifold and let CL•(M) be the algebra of classical pseudodifferential operators. The aim of this note is to classify trace functionals on the subspaces CLa(M) ⊂ CL•(M) of operators of order a. CLa(M) is a CL0(M)–module for any real a; it is an algebra only if a is a non–positive integer. Therefore, it turns out to be useful to introduce the notions of pretrace and hypertrace. Our main result gives a complete classification of pre– and hypertraces on CLa(M) for any
a ∈ R, as well as the traces on CLa(M) for a ∈ Z, a ≤ 0. We also extend these results to classical pseudodifferential operators acting on sections of a vector bundle.
As a byproduct we give a new proof of the well–known uniqueness results for the Guillemin–Wodzicki residue trace and for the Kontsevich–Vishik canonical trace. The novelty of our approach lies in the calculation of the cohomology groups of homogeneous and log–polyhomogeneous differential forms on a symplectic cone. This allows
to give an extremely simple proof of a generalization of a Theorem of Guillemin about the representation of homogeneous functions as sums of Poisson brackets.
This paper exposes and extends some of the results of the Ph.D. Thesis [NJ10] of the second named author. We acknowledge with gratitude the substantial help received from Sylvie Paycha.
