1. INTRODUCTION
In this note we present some constructions with generators of analytic semigroups which
are an abstract version of the familiar method of "freezing the coefficients" to prove ellip
tic estimates for differential operators with continuous coefficients or H¨oldercontinuous
coefficients. As a side result we obtain an abstract exponential decay result for, say eigen
functions corresponding to isolated eigenvalues.
After recalling some basic definitions in section 1.1 we first introduce a resolution of an
