Abstract:

In this paper we consider a non-self-adjoint evolution equation on a compact Riemannian manifold with boundary. We prove a Harnack inequality for a positive solution satisfying the Neumann boundary condition. In particular, the boundary of the manifold may be nonconvex and this gives a generalization to a theorem of Yau.
