Pseudo-differential operators on are operators of the form
where is the Fourier transform of and is called the symbol of
It may look complicated but in fact, roughly,
every linear continuous operator taking functions to functions is a pseudo-differential operator!
This is very easy to see, even rigorously, in the case of the torus For a smooth function its Fourier coefficients are defined by
The Fourier inversion formula then gives
Let now be a linear continuous operator, and let us define its so-called toroidal symbol by
Then using (3) and the fact that is linear and continuous we have
where we used (4) in the last line. Thus, we have shown an analogue of (1) on the torus:
which is called the toroidal quantization on the torus
A more or less comprehensive analysis of this toroidal quantization, its properties and relations to (1) can be read here:

In the above paper one makes a consistent development of the calculus of pseudo-differential operators which can be called pseudo-difference operators in the context of the lattice Some interesting questions to answer:
- how to define Hörmander type or other symbol classes on ?
- what is the relation to the analysis on the torus ?
- can it be used to derive new properties of operators on ?
- how to apply it to solving difference equations and to finding properties of their solutions?
