Boundary value problems on a manifold with smooth boundary are closely related to the edge calculus where the boundary plays the role of an edge. The problem of expressing parametrices of Shapiro-Lopatinskij elliptic boundary value problems for differential operators gives rise to pseudo-differential operators with the transmission property at the boundary. However, there are interesting pseudo-differential operators without the transmission property, for instance, the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator. In this case the symbols become edge-degenerate under a suitable quantisation, cf. Chang et al. (J Pseudo-Differ Oper Appl 5(2014):69-155, 2014). If the boundary itself has singularities, e.g., conical points or edges, then the symbols are corner-degenerate. In the present paper we study elements of the corresponding corner pseudo-differential calculus.

By edge algebra we understand a pseudo-differential calculus on a manifold with edge. The operators have a two-component principal symbolic hierarchy which determines operators up to lower order terms. Those belong to a filtration of the corresponding operator spaces. We give a new characterisation of this structure, based on an alternative representation of edge amplitude functions only containing holomorphic edge-degenerate Mellin symbols.
