A note on Poincaré, Sobolev, and Harnack inequalities. (English) Zbl 0769.58054

The author gives very interesting Poincaré and Sobolev inequalities for locally subelliptic, second order differential operators on a \(C^ \infty\)-connected manifold. Further he gives a parabolic Harnack inequality for the operator \(\partial_ t + L\). As an application he states a Hölder continuity result for solutions of \((\partial_ t + L)u = 0\) and estimates for the heat kernel. All results are rather interesting and therefore the reviewer hopes that detailed proofs will appear elsewhere.
