Detailing the most tools within the thought of involutive structures of complicated vector fields this e-book examines the foremost effects from the final twenty 5 years within the topic. one of many key instruments of the topic - the Baouendi-Treves approximation theorem - is proved for plenty of functionality areas. This in flip is utilized to questions in partial differential equations and a number of other complicated variables. Many easy difficulties corresponding to regularity, precise continuation and boundary behaviour of the recommendations are explored. The neighborhood solvability of platforms of partial differential equations is studied in a few aspect. The e-book offers an exceptional history for others new to the sector and in addition features a remedy of many fresh effects with a view to be of curiosity to researchers within the topic.

Malgrange ([Mal]) which leads to the proof of the Newlander–Nirenberg theorem. We start by recalling some of the results we need from the theory of nonlinear elliptic equations. 94) of RN , uq ∈ C M u = u1 ≤M Rq = 1 p is smooth and real-valued and q ≤ p. 94) at u0 . 94) is elliptic at u0 in a neighborhood of x0 . 94) at u0 at the point x0 . 94) is elliptic at u in the sense just defined, and if the function is real-analytic then u is real-analytic. 94) is elliptic at u0 ∈ C M x0 ∈ be such that x 0 u0 x 0 x1 u0 x0 Rq .

104) at H0 at the origin can be identified, in a natural way, with the complex operator m G → m t j=1 zj m 2 = j=1 Gz G1 zj zj t j1 j=1 m j=1 zj Gz jm 2 Gm zj zj which is clearly elliptic (in the usual sense). 100) satisfies B 0 ≤ . The proof is complete. Notes The first treatment of formally and locally integrable structures as presented here appeared in [T4], the main point for this being the discovery of the Approximation Formula by M. S. Baouendi and F. Treves in 1981 ([BT1]); such structures were then studied extensively in [T5].

M. 39) U → Rm , Let U be an open set of Rn and assume, given a smooth function m t = 1 t m t . We shall call a tube structure on R × U the m locally integrable structure on R × U for which T is spanned by the differentials of the functions Zk = xk + i k k=1 t m A tube structure has remarkably simple global generators. Indeed if we set, as usual, Z = Z1 Zm we have Zx x t = I, the identity m × m matrix, for every x t ∈ Rm × U . 37) take the form m Lj = tj −i k k=1 tj Observe that these vector fields span t xk j=1 on Rm × U .
