We prove a new generation result in L 1 for a large class of non-local operators with non-degenerate local terms. This class contains the operators appearing in Fokker-Planck or Kolmogorov forward equations associated with Lévy driven SDEs, i.e. the adjoint operators of the infinitesimal generators of these SDEs. As a byproduct, we also obtain a new elliptic regularity result of independent interest. The main novelty in this paper is that we can consider very general Lévy operators, including state-space depending coefficients with linear growth and general Lévy measures which can be singular and have fat tails.
