Note on basic features of large time behaviour of heat kernels

Autoren: Matthias Keller, Daniel Lenz, Hendrik Vogt, Radoslaw Wojciechowski (2015)

Large time behaviour of heat semigroups (and, more generally, of positive selfadjoint semigroups) is studied. Convergence of the semigroup to the ground state and of averaged logarithms of kernels to the ground state energy is shown in the general framework of positivity improving selfadjoint semigroups. This framework encompasses all irreducible semigroups coming from Dirichlet forms as well as suitable perturbations thereof. It includes, in particular, Laplacians on connected manifolds, metric graphs and discrete graphs.
