In 2002, Grisha Perelman awarded a brand new form of differential Harnack inequality which consists of either the (adjoint) linear warmth equation and the Ricci circulate. This resulted in a very new method of the Ricci circulate that allowed interpretation as a gradient circulation which maximizes varied entropy functionals. The aim of this booklet is to provide an explanation for this analytic device in complete aspect for the 2 examples of the linear warmth equation and the Ricci stream. It starts off with the unique Li-Yau consequence, offers Hamilton's Harnack inequalities for the Ricci circulate, and ends with Perelman's entropy formulation and space-time geodesics. The e-book is a self-contained, smooth advent to the Ricci circulate and the analytic the right way to examine it. it really is basically addressed to scholars who've a simple introductory wisdom of study and of Riemannian geometry and who're drawn to extra research in geometric research. No past wisdom of differential Harnack inequalities or the Ricci circulation is needed. A e-book of the ecu Mathematical Society (EMS). allotted in the Americas by means of the yankee Mathematical Society.
