Harnack inequalities and subGaussian estimates for random walks
 Math. Annalen
, 2002
"... We show that a fiparabolic Harnack inequality for random walks on graphs is equivalent, on one hand, to so called fiGaussian estimates for the transition probability and, on the other hand, to the conjunction of the elliptic Harnack inequality, the doubling volume property, and the fact that the m ..."

We show that a fiparabolic Harnack inequality for random walks on graphs is equivalent, on one hand, to so called fiGaussian estimates for the transition probability and, on the other hand, to the conjunction of the elliptic Harnack inequality, the doubling volume property, and the fact that the mean exit time in any ball of radius R is of the order R . The latter condition can be replaced by a certain estimate of a resistance of annuli.
The entropy formula for linear heat equation

"... ABSTRACT. We add two sections to [8] and answer some questions asked there. In the first section we give another derivation of Theorem 1.1 of [8], which reveals the relation between the entropy formula, (1.4) of [8], and the wellknown Li–Yau’s gradient estimate.

ABSTRACT. We add two sections to [8] and answer some questions asked there. In the first section we give another derivation of Theorem 1.1 of [8], which reveals the relation between the entropy formula, (1.4) of [8], and the wellknown Li–Yau’s gradient estimate. As a byproduct we obtain the sharp estimates on ‘Nash’s entropy ’ for manifolds with nonnegative Ricci curvature. We also show that the equality holds in Li–Yau’s gradient estimate, for some positive solution to the heat equation, at some positive time, implies that the complete Riemannian manifold with nonnegative Ricci curvature is isometric to R n. In the second section we derive a dual entropy formula which, to some degree, connects Hamilton’s entropy with Perelman’s entropy in the case of Riemann surfaces. 1. The relation with Li–Yau’s gradient estimates In this section we provide another derivation of Theorem 1.1 of [8] and discuss its relation with Li–Yau’s gradient estimates on positive solutions of heat equation. The formulation gives a sharp upper and lower bound estimates on Nash’s ‘entropy quantity ’ − � M H log Hdvin the case M has nonnegative Ricci curvature, where H is the fundamental solution (heat kernel) of the heat equation. This section is following the ideas in the Section 5 of [9]. Let u(x, t) be a positive solution to � ∂ ∂t − � � u(x, t) = 0 with �

We show that, if a certain Sobolev inequality holds, then a scaleinvariant elliptic Harnack inequality suces to imply its a priori stronger parabolic counterpart. Neither the relative Sobolev inequality nor the elliptic Harnack inequality alone suces to imply the parabolic Harnack inequality in question; both are necessary conditions. As an application, we show the equivalence between parabolic Harnack inequality for on M , (i.e., for @ t + ) and elliptic Harnack inequality for @ 2 t + on R M . 1

In this paper, we study global properties of continuous plurisubharmonic functions on complete noncompact Kähler manifolds with nonnegative bisectional curvature and their applications to the structure of such manifolds. We prove that continuous plurisubharmonic functions with reasonable growth rate on such manifolds can be approximated by smooth plurisubharmonic functions through the heat flow deformation. Optimal Liouville type theorem for the plurisubharmonic functions as well as a splitting theorem in terms of harmonic functions and holomorphic functions are established. The results are then applied to prove several structure theorems on complete noncompact Kähler manifolds with nonnegative bisectional or sectional curvature.
