http://arxiv.org/abs/1205.6768
In this expository article, we discuss various monotonicity formulas for parabolic and elliptic operators and explain how the analysis of the function spaces and the geometry of the underlining spaces are intertwined. After briefly discussing some of the well-known analytical applications of monotonicity for parabolic operators, we turn to their elliptic counterparts, their geometric meaning, and some geometric consequences.

• Pls. be polite and constructive.
• You can input La|TeX for math formulas. E.g. $$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}$$
• Any attachment files should still be uploaded to arXiv.org
