Bounded solutions of the Schrödinger equation on noncompact Riemannian manifolds

  • A. A. Grigor'yan


Necessary and sufficient geometric conditions are proved for the equation Δu−Q(x)u=0, Q(x)≥0, to have a bounded nontrivial solution on a noncompact Riemannian manifold. The results imply as corollaries conditions for parabolicity and stochastic completeness of a manifold, previously established by other methods.
