Abstract

Analysis on Riemannian manifolds stems from the following simple fact: the classical Laplace operator has an exact Riemannian analog. Indeed, the properties of the Laplacian on a bounded Euclidean domain and on a compact Riemannian manifold are very similar, and so are the proofs. It can be said that the difficulties of the latter case, compared with the former, are essentially conceptual.
