Abstract: Let $ M$ be a complete Riemannian manifold with Ricci curvature bounded from below: $ Ric(M)\ge-\kappa$. Let $ N$ be a simply connected complete Riemannian manifold with nonpositive sectional curvature. Using a gradient estimate, we prove Liouville's theorem for the ancient solution of heat flows.
