Abstract: Assuming that a Nash type inequality is satisfied by a non-negative self-adjoint operator $ A$, we prove a Nash type inequality for the fractional powers $ A^{\alpha}$ of $ A$. Under some assumptions, we give ultracontractivity bounds for the semigroup $ (T_{t,{\alpha}})$ generated by $ -A^{\alpha}$.
