Abstract. We consider a class of fractal subsets of R d formed in a manner analogous to the construction of the Sierpinski carpet. We prove a uniform Harnack inequality for positive harmonic functions; study the heat equation, and obtain upper and lower bounds on the heat kernel which are, up to constants, the best possible; construct a locally isotropic diffusion X and determine its basic properties; and extend some classical Sobolev and Poincaré inequalities to this setting. 1

We obtain Gaussian upper and lower bounds on the transition density qt(x, y) of the continuous time simple random walk on a supercritical percolation cluster C ∞ in the Euclidean lattice. The bounds, analogous to Aronsen’s bounds for uniformly elliptic divergence form diffusions, hold with constants ci depending only on p (the percolation probability) and d. The irregular nature of the medium means that the bound for qt(x, ·) only holds for t ≥ Sx(ω), where the constant Sx(ω) depends on the percolation configuration ω.

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.

"... 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 que ..."

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

Let \Gamma = (G; E) be an infinite weighted graph which is Ahlfors ffregular, so that there exists a constant c such that c , where V (x; r) is the volume of the ball centre x and radius r. Define the escape time T (x; r) to be the mean exit time of a simple random walk on \Gamma starting at x from the ball centre x and radius r. We say \Gamma has escape time exponent fi ? 0 if there exists a constant c such that c T (x; r) cr for r 1. Well known estimates for random walks on graphs imply that ff 1 and 2 fi 1 + ff.

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)

. We prove the compactness of the imbedding of the Sobolev space W 1;2 0 (\Omega\Gamma into L 2(\Omega\Gamma for any relatively compact open subset\Omega of an Alexandrov space. As a corollary, the generator induced from the Dirichlet (energy) form has discrete spectrum. The generator can be approximated by the Laplacian induced from the DCstructure on the Alexandrov space. We also prove the existence of the locally Holder continuous Dirichlet heat kernel. 1. Introduction Consider a family M of ndimensional closed Riemannian manifolds with a uniform lower bound of sectional curvature and a uniform upper bound of diameter for a fixed n 2 N . In order to investigate various properties of manifolds in M, it is very useful to study its closure M with respect to the GromovHausdorff distance dGH , which is compact by the Gromov compactness theorem [15]. Since the closure M consists of Alexandrov spaces introduced in [2], the study of Alexandrov spaces is nowadays an important topic i...
