## Abstract:

Let $L = a(x)({d^2}/d{x^2}) + b(x)(d/dx) + c(x)$ be a diffusion operator on a compact interval $I = [{r_0},{r_1}]$ investigated by S. N. Ethier. Here, assume that $a$, $b$ and $c$ are real analytic functions on $I$, $a(x) > 0$ for $x \in ({r_0},{r_1})$, $a({r_i}) = 0 \leqslant {( - 1)^i}b({r_i})(i = 0,1)$, and both ${r_i}(i = 0,1)$ are simple zeros of $a(x)$. It is shown that the resolvent $\left \{ {{G_\lambda }} \right \}$ for $L$ has the analyticity preserving property for sufficiently large $\lambda$, so that the equation $(L - \lambda )u = f$ is solvable in the space of real analytic functions on $I$. Some examples are given to show that the condition on $L$ is best possible.## References
