Abstract: In this note we give a short proof of a theorem of Kotake and Narasimhan to the effect that if is a strongly elliptic operator of order with analytic coefficients and , where is some suitable norm, then is analytic. (Actually Kotake and Narasimhan prove the theorem when is elliptic, but the trick we use here requires some specialization.) This is applied to derive a short proof of a theorem proved by Gårding and Malgrange, in the constant coefficients case, concerning conditionally elliptic operators.
