We prove a multiplier theorem of Mihlin-Hörmander-type for operators of the form -Δx–V(x) Δy on ℝd1x ×ℝd2y , where V(x) = ∑d1 j=1 Vj(xj) the Vj are perturbations of the power law t ⟼|t|2σ , and σ∈(1/2, ∞). The result is sharp whenever d1 ≥ σd2. The main novelty of the result resides in its robustness: this appears to be the first sharp multiplier theorem for nonelliptic subelliptic operators allowing for step higher than two and perturbation of the coefficients. The proof hinges on precise estimates for eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of one-dimensional Schrödinger operators, which are stable under perturbations of the potential.
