  • We study the short and large time behaviour of solutions of nonlocal heat equations of the form ∂tu+Lu=0. Here L is an integral operator given by a symmetric nonnegative kernel of Lévy type, that includes bounded and unbounded transition probability densities. We characterize when a regularizing effect occurs for small times and obtain Lq-Lp decay estimates, 1≤q
