Abstract
In this paper, the separability properties of elliptic convolution operator equations are investigated. It is obtained that the corresponding convolutionelliptic operator is positive and also is a generator of an analytic semigroup. By using these results, the existence and uniqueness of maximal regular solution of the nonlinear convolution equation is obtained in spaces. In application, maximal regularity properties of anisotropic elliptic convolution equations are studied.

In recent years, maximal regularity properties for differential operator equations, especially parabolic and elliptictype, have been studied extensively, e.g., in [113] and the references therein (for comprehensive references, see [13]). Moreover, in [14,15], on embedding theorems and maximal regular differential operator equations in Banachvalued function spaces have been studied. Also, in [16,17], on theorems on the multiplicators of Fourier integrals obtained, which were used in studying isotropic as well as anisotropic spaces of differentiable functions of many variables. In addition, multiplicators of Fourier integrals for the spaces of Banach valued functions were studied. On the basis of these results, embedding theorems are proved.
Moreover, convolutiondifferential equations (CDEs) have been treated, e.g., in [1,1822] and [23]. Convolution operators in vector valued spaces are studied, e.g., in [2426] and [27]. However, the convolutiondifferential operator equations (CDOEs) are a relatively less investigated subject (see [13]). The main aim of the present paper is to establish the separability properties of the linear CDOE
and the existence and uniqueness of the following nonlinear CDOE
in Evalued spaces, where is a possible unbounded operator in a Banach space E, and are complexvalued functions, and λ is a complex parameter. We prove that the problem (1.1) has a unique solution u, and the following coercive uniform estimate holds
for all , and . The methods are based on operatorvalued multiplier theorems, theory of elliptic operators, vectorvalued convolution integrals, operator theory and etc. Maximal regularity properties for parabolic CDEs with bounded operator coefficients were investigated in [1].

Then, by using estimate (4.3) and reasoning as above, we get
Choose , so that , we obtain that G is a strict contraction. Then by virtue of contraction mapping principle, we obtain that problem (4.1) has a unique solution . □

Analogously, denotes the Sobolev space with a corresponding mixed norm [34]. Let Q denote the operator, generated by problem (4.4) and (5.1). In this section, we present the following result.
