Abstract: We derive a formula for the resolvent of the elliptic operator $ H = {( - \Delta )^m} + M_q^{2m}$ on $ {L_2}({\mathbb{R}^N})$ in terms of bounded integral operators $ {S_\lambda }$ and $ {T_\lambda }$ whose kernels we know explicitly. We use this formula to specify the domain of the operator $ {A_\lambda } = (H + \lambda I){M_p}$ on $ {L_2}({\mathbb{R}^N})$, and to estimate the Hilbert-Schmidt norm of its inverse $ A_\lambda ^{ - 1}$, for $ \lambda \geqslant 0$. Finally we exploit the last two results to prove a trace class criterion for an integral operator $ K$ on $ {L_2}({\mathbb{R}^N})$.
