Eigenvalue and singular value estimates for integral operators: a unifying approach

Authors


Abstract

We consider integral operators generated by square integrable kernels on an abstract measure space. Under smoothness assumptions defined by the action of a convenient multiplier-like operator on the kernel, we deduce decay rates for either the eigenvalues or the singular values of the integral operator. The setting is an abstract framework which encompasses classical cases that have appeared in different sources in the literature.
