Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 338; 2003; 424 ppMSC: Primary 58; 60; 47; 53; 35;
This volume contains the expanded lecture notes of courses taught at the Emile Borel Centre of the Henri Poincaré Institute (Paris). In the book, leading experts introduce recent research in their fields. The unifying theme is the study of heat kernels in various situations using related geometric and analytic tools. Topics include analysis of complexcoefficient elliptic operators, diffusions on fractals and on infinitedimensional groups, heat kernel and isoperimetry on Riemannian manifolds, heat kernels and infinite dimensional analysis, diffusions and Sobolevtype spaces on metric spaces, quasiregular mappings and \(p\)Laplace operators, heat kernel and spherical inversion on \(SL_2(C)\), random walks and spectral geometry on crystal lattices, isoperimetric and isocapacitary inequalities, and generating function techniques for random walks on graphs.
This volume is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in random processes and analysis on manifolds.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in random processes and analysis on manifolds.
