Fourier integral operators defined by classical symbols with exit behaviour
- We continue the investigation of the calculus of Fourier Integral Operators (FIOs) in the class of symbols with exit behaviour (SG symbols). Here we analyse what happens when one restricts the choice of amplitude and phase functions to the subclass of the classical SG symbols. It turns out that the main composition theorem, obtained in the environment of general SG classes, has a "classical" counterpart. As an application, we study the Cauchy problem for classical hyperbolic operators of order (1, 1); for such operators we refine the known results about the analogous problem for general SG hyperbolic operators. The material contained here will be used in a forthcoming paper to obtain a Weyl formula for a class of operators defined on manifolds with cylindrical ends, improving the results obtained in .
