. Optimal interior and boundary regularity results were given in [\begin{document}$ g $\end{document} 1 ], after [41 ], when , which, moreover, in the canonical case\begin{document}$ g \in L^2(0, T;L^2(\Gamma)) \equiv L^2(\Sigma) $\end{document} , were expressed by the wellknown explicit representation formulae of the wave equation in terms of cosine/sine operators [\begin{document}$ \gamma = 0 $\end{document} 19 ], [17 ], [24 ,Vol â…ˇ]. The interior or boundary regularity theory is however the same, whether or\begin{document}$ \gamma = 0 $\end{document} , since\begin{document}$ 0 \neq \gamma \in L^{\infty}(\Omega) $\end{document} is responsible only for lower order terms. Here we exploit such cosine operator basedexplicit representation formulae to provide optimal interior and boundary regularity results with\begin{document}$ \gamma \neq 0 $\end{document} "smoother" than\begin{document}$ g $\end{document} , qualitatively by one unit, two units, etc. in the Dirichlet boundary case. To this end, we invoke the corresponding results for wave equations, as in [\begin{document}$ L^2(\Sigma) $\end{document} 17 ]. Similarly for the Neumann boundary case,more » 
In this paper, we propose a new class of operator factorization methods to discretize the integral fractional Laplacian
for\begin{document}$ ( \Delta)^\frac{{ \alpha}}{{2}} $\end{document} . One main advantage is that our method can easily increase numerical accuracy by using highdegree Lagrange basis functions, but remain its scheme structure and computer implementation unchanged. Moreover, it results in a symmetric (multilevel) Toeplitz differentiation matrix, enabling efficient computation via the fast Fourier transforms. If constant or linear basis functions are used, our method has an accuracy of\begin{document}$ \alpha \in (0, 2) $\end{document} , while\begin{document}$ {\mathcal O}(h^2) $\end{document} for quadratic basis functions with\begin{document}$ {\mathcal O}(h^4) $\end{document} a small mesh size. This accuracy can be achieved for any\begin{document}$ h $\end{document} and can be further increased if higherdegree basis functions are chosen. Numerical experiments are provided to approximate the fractional Laplacian and solve the fractional Poisson problems. It shows that if the solution of fractional Poisson problem satisfies\begin{document}$ \alpha \in (0, 2) $\end{document} for\begin{document}$ u \in C^{m, l}(\bar{ \Omega}) $\end{document} and\begin{document}$ m \in {\mathbb N} $\end{document} , our method has an accuracy of\begin{document}$ 0 < l < 1 $\end{document} for constant and linear basis functions, while\begin{document}$more » for quadratic basis functions. Additionally, our method can be readily applied to approximate the generalized fractional Laplacians with symmetric kernel function, and numerical study on the tempered fractional Poisson problem demonstrates its efficiency.\begin{document}$ {\mathcal O}(h^{\min\{m+l, \, 4\}}) $\end{document} 
This paper studies a family of generalized surface quasigeostrophic (SQG) equations for an active scalar
on the whole plane whose velocities have been mildly regularized, for instance, logarithmically. The wellposedness of these regularized models in borderline Sobolev regularity have previously been studied by D. Chae and J. Wu when the velocity\begin{document}$ \theta $\end{document} is of lower singularity, i.e.,\begin{document}$ u $\end{document} , where\begin{document}$ u = \nabla^{\perp} \Lambda^{ \beta2}p( \Lambda) \theta $\end{document} is a logarithmic smoothing operator and\begin{document}$ p $\end{document} . We complete this study by considering the more singular regime\begin{document}$ \beta \in [0, 1] $\end{document} . The main tool is the identification of a suitable linearized system that preserves the underlying commutator structure for the original equation. We observe that this structure is ultimately crucial for obtaining continuity of the flow map. In particular, straightforward applications of previous methods for active transport equations fail to capture the more nuanced commutator structure of the equation in this more singular regime. The proposed linearized system nontrivially modifies the flux of the original system in such a way that it coincides with the original flux when evaluated along solutions of themore »\begin{document}$ \beta\in(1, 2) $\end{document} 
We consider optimal control of fractional in time (subdiffusive, i.e., for
) semilinear parabolic PDEs associated with various notions of diffusion operators in an unifying fashion. Under general assumptions on the nonlinearity we\begin{document}$ 0<\gamma <1 $\end{document} the existence and regularity of solutions to the forward and the associated\begin{document}$\mathsf{first\;show}$\end{document} problems. In the second part, we prove existence of optimal\begin{document}$\mathsf{backward\;(adjoint)}$\end{document} and characterize the associated\begin{document}$\mathsf{controls }$\end{document} optimality conditions. Several examples involving fractional in time (and some fractional in space diffusion) equations are described in detail. The most challenging obstacle we overcome is the failure of the semigroup property for the semilinear problem in any scaling of (frequencydomain) Hilbert spaces.\begin{document}$\mathsf{first\;order}$\end{document} 
Consider the linear transport equation in 1D under an external confining potential

(with\begin{document}$ \Phi = \frac {x^2}2 + \frac { \varepsilon x^4}2 $\end{document} small), we prove phase mixing and quantitative decay estimates for\begin{document}$ \varepsilon >0 $\end{document} , with an inverse polynomial decay rate\begin{document}$ {\partial}_t \varphi : =  \Delta^{1} \int_{ \mathbb{R}} {\partial}_t f \, \mathrm{d} v $\end{document} . In the proof, we develop a commuting vector field approach, suitably adapted to this setting. We will explain why we hope this is relevant for the nonlinear stability of the zero solution for the Vlasovâ€“Poisson system in\begin{document}$ O({\langle} t{\rangle}^{2}) $\end{document} D under the external potential\begin{document}$ 1 $\end{document} .\begin{document}$ \Phi $\end{document}
