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 consider a metric measure space (M, d,µ) andaheat kernel pt(x, y) on M satisfying certain upper and lower estimates, which depend on two parameters α and β. We show that under additional mild assumptions, these parameters are determined by the intrinsic properties of the space (M, d, µ) ..."

Abstract. We consider a metric measure space (M, d,µ) andaheat kernel pt(x, y) on M satisfying certain upper and lower estimates, which depend on two parameters α and β. We show that under additional mild assumptions, these parameters are determined by the intrinsic properties of the space (M, d, µ). Namely, α is the Hausdorff dimension of this space, whereas β, called the walk dimension, is determined via the properties of the family of Besov spaces W σ,2 on M. Moreover, the parameters α and β are related by the inequalities 2 ≤ β ≤ α +1. We prove also the embedding theorems for the space W β/2,2, and use them to obtain the existence results for weak solutions to semilinear elliptic equations on M of the form −Lu + f(x, u) =g(x), where L is the generator of the semigroup associated with pt. The framework in this paper is applicable for a large class of fractal domains, including the generalized Sierpiński carpet in Rn. 1.

A CPsemigroup (or quantum dynamical semigroup) is a semigroup φ = {φt: t ≥ 0} of normal completely positive linear maps on B(H), H being a separable Hilbert space, which satisfies φt(1) = 1 for all t ≥ 0 and is continuous in the time parameter t the natural sense. Let D be the natural domain of the generator L of φ, φt = exp tL, t ≥ 0. Since the maps φt need not be multiplicative D is typically an operator space, but not an algebra. However, in this note we show that the set of operators A = {A ∈D: A ∗ A ∈D,AA ∗ ∈D} is a ∗subalgebra of B(H), indeed A is the largest selfadjoint algebra contained in D. Examples are described for which the domain algebra A is, and is not, strongly dense in B(H). 1. Basic properties of A. Let φ = {φt: t ≥ 0} be a CPsemigroup as defined in the abstract. We first recall four characterizations of the domain of the generator of φ.

Abstract. We derive upper bounds for the trace of the heat kernel Z(t) of the Dirichlet Laplace operator in an open set Ω ⊂ R d, d ≥ 2. In domains of finite volume the result improves an inequality of Kac. Using the same methods we give bounds on Z(t) in domains of infinite volume. For domains of finite volume the bound on Z(t) decays exponentially as t tends to infinity and it contains the sharp first term and a correction term reflecting the properties of the short time asymptotics of Z(t). To prove the result we employ refined BerezinLiYau inequalities for eigenvalue means. 1. Introduction and
