On a class of positive C_{0}-semigroups of operators on weighted continuous function spaces


This paper is mainly concerned with the study of the generators of those positive C_{0}-semigroups on weighted continuous function spaces that leave invariant a given closed sublattice of bounded continuous functions and whose relevant restrictions are Feller semigroups. Additive and multiplicative perturbation results for this class of generators are also established. Finally, some applications concerning multiplicative perturbations of the Laplacian on \mathbb{R}^{n}, n\geq1, and degenerate second-order differential operators on unbounded real intervals are showed.
