  • We prove that knowing the lengths of geodesics joining points of the boundary of a two-dimensional, compact, simple Riemannian manifold with boundary, we can determine uniquely the Riemannian metric up to the natural obstruction. 1. Introduction and statement of the results Let (M, g) be a compact Riemannian manifold with boundary ∂M . Let dg (x, y) denote the geodesic distance between x and y. The inverse problem we address in this paper is whether we can determine the Riemannian metric g knowing dg (x, y) for any x ∈ ∂M , y ∈ ∂M . ...

  • For each k ∈ Z, we construct a uniformly contractible metric on Euclidean space which is not mod k hypereuclidean. We also construct a pair of uniformly contractible Riemannian metrics on Rn , n ≥ 11, so that the resulting manifolds Z and Z are bounded homotopy equivalent by a homotopy equivalence which is not boundedly close to a homeomorphism. We show that for these lf spaces the C ∗ -algebra assembly map K∗ (Z) → K∗ (C ∗ (Z)) from locally finite K-homology to the K-theory of the bounded propagation algebra is not a monomorphism ...

  • The Ricci flow was introduced by Hamilton in 1982 [H1] in order to prove that a compact three-manifold admitting a Riemannian metric of positive Ricci curvature is a spherical space form. In dimension four Hamilton showed that compact four-manifolds with positive curvature operators are spherical space forms as well [H2]. More generally, the same conclusion holds for compact four-manifolds with 2-positive curvature operators [Che]. Recall that a curvature operator is called 2-positive, if the sum of its two smallest eigenvalues is positive. ...

  • We define and study an algebra Ψ∞ (M0 ) of pseudodifferential opera1,0,V tors canonically associated to a noncompact, Riemannian manifold M0 whose geometry at infinity is described by a Lie algebra of vector fields V on a compactification M of M0 to a compact manifold with corners. We show that the basic properties of the usual algebra of pseudodifferential operators on a compact manifold extend to Ψ∞ (M0 ).

  • There are very few examples of Riemannian manifolds with positive sectional curvature known. In fact in dimensions above 24 all known examples are diffeomorphic to locally rank one symmetric spaces. We give a partial explanation of this phenomenon by showing that a positively curved, simply connected, compact manifold (M, g) is up to homotopy given by a rank one symmetric space, provided that its isometry group Iso(M, g) is large. More precisely we prove first that if dim(Iso(M, g)) ≥ 2 dim(M ) − 6, then M is tangentially homotopically equivalent to a rank one symmetric space or M...

  • We study enhancement of diffusive mixing on a compact Riemannian manifold by a fast incompressible flow. Our main result is a sharp description of the class of flows that make the deviation of the solution from its average arbitrarily small in an arbitrarily short time, provided that the flow amplitude is large enough. The necessary and sufficient condition on such flows is expressed naturally in terms of the spectral properties of the dynamical system associated with the flow. In particular, we find that weakly mixing flows always enhance dissipation in this sense. ...

  • Let X = G/K be a homogeneous Riemannian manifold where G is the identity component of its isometry group. A C ∞ function F on X is harmonic if it is annihilated by every element of DG (X), the algebra of all G-invariant differential operators without constant term. One of the most beautiful results in the harmonic analysis of symmetric spaces is the Helgason conjecture, which states that on a Riemannian symmetric space of noncompact type, a function is harmonic if and only if it is the Poisson integral of a hyperfunction over the Furstenberg boundary G/Po where...

  • This paper is the first in a series where we describe the space of all embedded minimal surfaces of fixed genus in a fixed (but arbitrary) closed Riemannian 3-manifold. The key for understanding such surfaces is to understand the local structure in a ball and in particular the structure of an embedded minimal disk in a ball in R3 (with the flat metric). This study is undertaken here and completed in [CM6]. These local results are then applied in [CM7] where we describe the general structure of fixed genus surfaces in 3-manifolds. There are two local models for...

  • We study the large eigenvalue limit for the eigenfunctions of the Laplacian, on a compact manifold of negative curvature – in fact, we only assume that the geodesic flow has the Anosov property. In the semi-classical limit, we prove that the Wigner measures associated to eigenfunctions have positive metric entropy. In particular, they cannot concentrate entirely on closed geodesics. 1.

  • The goal of this paper is to describe all closed, aspherical Riemannian manifolds M whose universal covers M have a nontrivial amount of symmetry. By this we mean that Isom(M ) is not discrete. By the well-known theorem of Myers-Steenrod [MS], this condition is equivalent to [Isom(M ) : π1 (M )] = ∞. Also note that if any cover of M has a nondiscrete isometry group, then so does its universal cover M . Our description of such M is given in Theorem 1.2 below. The proof of this theorem uses methods from Lie theory, harmonic maps,...

  • Let T (x, ε) denote the first hitting time of the disc of radius ε centered at x for Brownian motion on the two dimensional torus T2 . We prove that supx∈T2 T (x, ε)/| log ε|2 → 2/π as ε → 0. The same applies to Brownian motion on any smooth, compact connected, two-dimensional, Riemannian manifold with unit area and no boundary. As a consequence, we prove a conjecture, due to Aldous (1989), that the number of steps it takes a simple random walk to cover all points of the lattice torus Z2 is asymptotic to 4n2 (log...

  • This paper is a continuation of Fefferman’s program [7] for studying the geometry and analysis of strictly pseudoconvex domains. The key idea of the program is to consider the Bergman and Szeg¨ kernels of the domains as o analogs of the heat kernel of Riemannian manifolds. In Riemannian (or conformal) geometry, the coefficients of the asymptotic expansion of the heat kernel can be expressed in terms of the curvature of the metric; by integrating the coefficients one obtains index theorems in various settings. ...

  • We study the problem of conformally deforming a metric to a prescribed symmetric function of the eigenvalues of the Ricci tensor. We prove an existence theorem for a wide class of symmetric functions on manifolds with positive Ricci curvature, provided the conformal class admits an admissible metric. 1.

  • Invariant measures for the geodesic flow on the unit tangent bundle of a negatively curved Riemannian manifold are a basic and well-studied subject. This paper continues an investigation into a 2-dimensional analog of this flow for a 3-manifold N . Namely, the article discusses 2-dimensional surfaces immersed into N whose product of principal curvature equals a constant k between 0 and 1, surfaces which are called k-surfaces.

  • Let g be a scattering metric on a compact manifold X with boundary, i.e., a smooth metric giving the interior X ◦ the structure of a complete Riemannian manifold with asymptotically conic ends. An example is any compactly supported perturbation of the standard metric on Rn . Consider the operator H = 1 ∆ + V , where ∆ is the positive Laplacian with respect to g and V is a 2 smooth real-valued function on X vanishing to second order at ∂X. Assuming that g is nontrapping, we construct a global parametrix U(z, w, t) for the kernel...
