Limited regularity of solutions to fractional heat and Schrödinger equations

When P is the fractional Laplacian (-Δ) a , 0 < a < 1, or a pseudodifferential generalization thereof, the Dirichlet problem for the associated heat equation over a smooth set (Equation presented), is known to be solvable in relatively low-order Sobolev or Holder spaces. We now show that in contrast with differential operator cases, the regularity of u in x at δΩ when f is very smooth cannot in general be improved beyond a certain estimate. An improvement requires the vanishing of a Neumann boundary value. - There is a similar result for the Schrödinger Dirichlet problem r+Pv(x) + Vv(x) = g(x) on Ω, supp u ⊂ Ω, with V(x) ϵ C . The proofs involve a precise description, of interest in itself, of the Dirichlet domains in terms of regular functions and functions with a dist(x, δΩ) a singularity.
