Stability of heat kernel estimates and parabolic Harnack inequalities for jump processes on metric measure spaces
We consider mixed-type jump processes on metric measure spaces and prove the stability of two-sided heat kernel estimates, heat kernel upper bounds, and parabolic Harnack inequalities.
We establish their stable equivalent characterizations in terms of the jump kernels, modifications of cut-off Sobolev inequalities, and the Poincaré inequalities. In particular, we prove the stability of heat kernel estimates for \(\alpha\)-stable-like processes even with \(\alpha\ge 2\), which has been one of the major open problems in this area. We will also explain applications to stochastic processes on fractals.
