Nontangential Maximal Function Characterizations of Hardy Spaces Associated with Degenerate Elliptic Operators
Let $w$ be either in the Muckenhoupt class of $A_2(\mathbb{R}^n)$ weights
or in the class of $QC(\mathbb{R}^n)$ weights, and
$L_w:=w^{1}\mathop{\mathrm{div}}(A\nabla)$
the degenerate elliptic operator on the Euclidean space $\mathbb{R}^n$,
$n\ge 2$. In this article, the authors establish the nontangential
maximal function characterization
of the Hardy space $H_{L_w}^p(\mathbb{R}^n)$ associated with $L_w$ for
$p\in (0,1]$ and, when $p\in (\frac{n}{n+1},1]$ and
$w\in A_{q_0}(\mathbb{R}^n)$ with $q_0\in[1,\frac{p(n+1)}n)$,
the authors prove that the associated Riesz transform $\nabla L_w^{1/2}$
is bounded from $H_{L_w}^p(\mathbb{R}^n)$ to the weighted classical
Hardy space $H_w^p(\mathbb{R}^n)$.

Existence of Weak Solutions of Linear Subelliptic Dirichlet Problems With Rough Coefficients
This article gives an existence theory for weak solutions of second order nonelliptic linear Dirichlet problems of the form
\begin{align*}
\nabla'P(x)\nabla u +{\bf HR}u+{\bf S'G}u +Fu &= f+{\bf T'g} \text{ in }\Theta
\\
u&=\varphi\text{ on }\partial \Theta.
\end{align*}
The principal part $\xi'P(x)\xi$ of the above equation is assumed to
be comparable to a quadratic form ${\mathcal Q}(x,\xi) = \xi'Q(x)\xi$ that
may vanish for nonzero $\xi\in\mathbb{R}^n$. This is achieved using
techniques of functional analysis applied to the degenerate Sobolev
spaces $QH^1(\Theta)=W^{1,2}(\Theta,Q)$ and
$QH^1_0(\Theta)=W^{1,2}_0(\Theta,Q)$ as defined in
previous works.
Sawyer and Wheeden give a regularity theory
for a subset of the class of equations dealt with here.

Geometry and Spectra of Closed Extensions of Elliptic Cone Operators
We study the geometry of the set of closed extensions of index $0$ of
an elliptic differential cone operator and its model operator in
connection with the spectra of the extensions, and we give a necessary
and sufficient condition for the existence of rays of minimal growth
for such operators.

The Resolvent of Closed Extensions of Cone Differential Operators
We study closed extensions $\underline A$ of
an elliptic differential operator $A$ on a manifold with conical
singularities, acting as an unbounded operator on a weighted $L_p$space.
Under suitable conditions we show that the resolvent
$(\lambda\underline A)^{1}$ exists
in a sector of the complex plane and decays like $1/\lambda$ as
$\lambda\to\infty$. Moreover, we determine the structure of the resolvent
with enough precision to guarantee existence and boundedness of imaginary
powers of $\underline A$.
As an application we treat the LaplaceBeltrami operator for a metric with
straight conical degeneracy and describe domains yielding
maximal regularity for the Cauchy problem $\dot{u}\Delta u=f$, $u(0)=0$.
