Some sharp $L^2$ inequalities for Dirac type operators

SIGMA, Symmetry Integrability Geom. Methods Appl. 3, Paper 114, 10 p., electronic only (2007)


Summary: We use the spectra of Dirac type operators on the sphere $S^{n}$ to produce sharp $L^{2}$ inequalities on the sphere. These operators include the Dirac operator on $S^{n}$, the conformal Laplacian and Paenitz operator. We use the Cayley transform, or stereographic projection, to obtain similar inequalities for powers of the Dirac operator and their inverses in $R^{n}$.
