||Maximum Principles for Subharmonic Functions Via Local Semi-Dirichlet Forms |
Maximum principles for subharmonic
functions in the framework of quasi-regular local semi-Dirichlet
forms admitting lower bounds are presented.
As applications, we give
weak and strong maximum principles
for (local) subsolutions of a second order elliptic
differential operator on the domain of Euclidean space under conditions on coefficients,
which partially generalize the results by Stampacchia.
Keywords:positivity preserving form, semi-Dirichlet form, Dirichlet form, subharmonic functions, superharmonic functions, harmonic functions, weak maximum principle, strong maximum principle, irreducibility, absolute continuity condition

||Complex Uniform Convexity and Riesz Measure |
The norm on a Banach space gives rise to a subharmonic function on the
complex plane for which the distributional Laplacian gives a Riesz measure.
This measure is calculated explicitly here for Lebesgue $L^p$ spaces and the
von~Neumann-Schatten trace ideals. Banach spaces that are $q$-uniformly
$\PL$-convex in the sense of Davis, Garling and Tomczak-Jaegermann are
characterized in terms of the mass distribution of this measure. This gives
a new proof that the trace ideals $c^p$ are $2$-uniformly $\PL$-convex for
$1\leq p\leq 2$.
Keywords:subharmonic functions, Banach spaces, Schatten trace ideals
