Parabolic Harnack inequality on fractal-type metric measure Dirichlet spaces

Janna Lierl[1]

(1) University of Connecticut, Storrs, USA

This paper proves the strong parabolic Harnack inequality for local weak solutions to the heat equation associated with time-dependent (nonsymmetric) bilinear forms. The underlying metric measure Dirichlet space is assumed to satisfy the volume doubling condition, the strong Poincaré inequality, and a cutoff Sobolev inequality. The metric is not required to be geodesic. Further results include a weighted Poincaré inequality, as well as upper and lower bounds for non-symmetric heat kernels.

Keywords: Parabolic Harnack inequality, Moser iteration, weighted Poincaré inequality, heat kernel estimates, non-symmetric Dirichlet form, fractals
