For any Cr contact Anosov flow with r ≥ 3, we construct a scale of Hilbert spaces, which are embedded in the space of distributions on the phase space and contain all the Cr functions, such that the one-parameter family of transfer operators for the flow extend to them boundedly and that the extensions are quasi-compact. We also give explicit bounds on the essential spectral radii of those extensions in terms of differentiability r and the hyperbolicity exponents of the flow.
