We show that on a Cayley graph of a nonamenable group, a.s. the infinite clusters of Bernoulli percolation are transient for simple random walk, that simple random walk on these clusters has positive speed, and that these clusters admit bounded harmonic functions. A principal new finding on which these results are based is that such clusters admit invariant random subgraphs with positive isoperimetric constant. We also show that percolation clusters in any amenable Cayley graph a.s. admit no nonconstant harmonic Dirichlet functions. Conversely, on a Cayley graph admitting nonconstant harmonic Dirichlet functions, a.s. the infinite clusters of pBernoulli percolation also have nonconstant harmonic Dirichlet functions when p is sufficiently close to 1. Many conjectures and questions are presented.

Abstract. Let µ = (µ 1,..., µ d) be such that each µ i is a signed measure on R d belonging to the Kato class Kd,1. The existence and uniqueness of a continuous Markov process X on R d, called a Brownian motion with drift µ, was recently established by Bass and Chen. In this paper we study the potential theory of X. We show that X has a continuous density q µ and that there exist positive constants ci, i = 1, · · · , 9, such that and c1e −c2t − t d 2 e − c3 x−y2 2t ≤ q µ (t, x, y) ≤ c4e c5t − t d 2 e − c6 x−y2 2t ∇xq µ (t, x, y)  ≤ c7e c8t − t d+1 2 e − c9 x−y2 2t for all (t, x, y) ∈ (0, ∞) × R d × R d. We further show that, for any bounded C 1,1 domain D, the density q µ,D of X D, the process obtained by killing X upon exiting from D, has the following estimates: for any T> 0, there exist positive constants Ci, i = 1, · · · , 5, such that and C1(1 ∧ ρ(x) √ t)(1 ∧ ρ(y) √ t)t − d 2 e − C 2 x−y2 t ≤ q µ,D (t, x, y) ≤ C3(1 ∧ ρ(x) √)(1 ∧ t ρ(y)

In this paper, by first deriving a global version of gradient estimates, we obtain both upper and lower bound estimates for the heat kernel satisfying Neumann boundary conditions on a compact Riemannian manifold with nonconvex boundary. 1. Introduction. Let M be a compact Riemannian manifold with boundary ∂M. In their fundamental work [LY], P. Li and S.T. Yau had derived a version of gradient estimates for the positive solutions to the heat equations on M. Using those estimates, they then deduced a Harnack type inequality and demonstrated

We consider secondorder linear elliptic operators of nondivergence type which are intrinsically defined on Riemannian manifolds. Cabré proved a global KrylovSafonov Harnack inequality under the assumption that the sectional curvature is nonnegative. We improve Cabré’s result and, as a consequence, we give another proof to the Harnack inequality of Yau for positive harmonic functions on Riemannian manifolds with nonnegative Ricci curvature using the nondivergence structure of the Laplace operator. 1.

Abstract The classical Sobolev inequalities play a key role in analysis in Euclidean spaces and in the study of solutions of partial differential equations. In fact, they are extremely flexible tools and are useful in many different settings. This paper gives a glimpse of assortments of such applications in a variety of contexts. 1
