Title: A factorization method for non-symmetric linear operator: enlargement of the functional space
while preserving hypo-coercivity.

Abstract:  We present a factorization method for non-symmetric linear operators: the method allows to
enlarge functional spaces while preserving spectral properties for the considered operators.
In particular, spectral gap and related convergence towards equilibrium follow easily
by hypo-coercivity and resolvent estimates.
Applications of this theory on several kinetic equations will be presented.
