# Fractional Laplacians on ellipsoids

• Received: 15 May 2020 Accepted: 08 September 2020 Published: 22 September 2020
• We show explicit formulas for the evaluation of (possibly higher-order) fractional Laplacians (-△)s of some functions supported on ellipsoids. In particular, we derive the explicit expression of the torsion function and give examples of $s$-harmonic functions. As an application, we infer that the weak maximum principle fails in eccentric ellipsoids for $s\in(1, \sqrt{3}+3/2)$ in any dimension $n\geq 2$. We build a counterexample in terms of the torsion function times a polynomial of degree 2. Using point inversion transformations, it follows that a variety of bounded and unbounded domains do not satisfy positivity preserving properties either and we give some examples.
