Given a Riemannian manifold (M, g), we study the solutions of heat equations associated with second order differential operators in divergence form that are uniformly elliptic with respect to g. Typical examples of such operators are the Laplace operators of Riemannian structures which are quasiisometric to g. We first prove some Poincare and Sobolev inequalities on geodesic balls. Then we use Moser's iteration to obtain Harnack inequalities. Gaussian estimates, uniqueness theorems, and other applications are also discussed. These results involve local or global lower bound hypotheses on the Ricci curvature of g. Some of them are new even when applied to the Laplace operator of (M, g). 1.

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 �
Uniqueness of the Ricci flow on complete noncompact manifolds

The Ricci flow is an evolution system on metrics. For a given metric as initial data, its local existence and uniqueness on compact manifolds was first established by Hamilton [8]. Later on, De Turck [4] gave a simplified proof. In the later of 80’s, Shi [20] generalized the local existence result to complete noncompact manifolds. However, the uniqueness of the solutions to the Ricci flow on complete noncompact manifolds is still an open question. Recently it was found that the uniqueness of the Ricci flow on complete noncompact manifolds is important in the theory of the Ricci flow with surgery. In this paper, we give an affirmative answer for the uniqueness question. More precisely, we prove that the solution of the Ricci flow with bounded curvature on a complete noncompact manifold is unique.

In this paper, we continue our study of the canonical metrics on the moduli space of curves. We first prove the bounded geometry of the Ricci and perturbed Ricci metrics. By carefully choosing the pertubation constant and by studying the asymptotics, we show that the Ricci and holomorphic sectional curvatures of the perturbed Ricci metric are bounded from above and below by negative constants. Based on our understanding of the Kähler– Einstein metric, we show that the logarithmic cotangent bundle over the Deligne–Mumford moduli space is stable with respect to the canonical polarization. Finally, in the last section, we prove the strongly bounded geometry of the Kähler–Einstein metric by using the Kähler–Ricci flow and aprioriestimates of the complex MongeAmpere equation. 1.

In particular, we give a detailed exposition of a complete proof of the Poincaré conjecture due to Hamilton and Perelman.
