We consider degenerate differential operators of the type on with real symmetric bounded measurable coefficients. Given a function (respectively, a bounded Lipschitz domain ), suppose that a.e. on (respectively, a.e. on ). We prove a spectral multiplier type result: if is such that for some nontrivial function and some then is weak type (1,1) (respectively, is weak type (1,1)). We also prove boundedness on for all of the partial Riesz transforms . The proofs are based on a criterion for a singular integral operator to be weak type (1,1).
