(properly supported peudo-differential operator)
A pseudo-differential operator $Q$ on a manifold $X$ is called properly supported if for each compact subset $K \subset X$ there exists a compact subset $K' \subset X$ such that for $u$ a distribution with support in $K$ it follows that the derivative of distributions $Q u$ has support in $K'$
and such that

(differential operators are properly supported pseudo-differential operators)
Every ordinary differential operator $D$, regarded as a pseudo-differential operator, is properly supported (def. ), since differential operators do not increase the support of the functions they act on:
