Function-theoretic degeneracy criteria for Riemannian manifolds

Moses Glasner and Richard Emanuel Katz

Vol. 28 (1969), No. 2, 351–356
Abstract

The modulus of a relatively compact set with border consisting of at least two components is a measure of its magnitude with regard to harmonic functions. A divergent modular sum associated with difference sets obtained from an exhaustion of a Riemannian manifold is characteristic of parabolicity. The existence of a divergent minimum modular sum implies that the manifold carries no nonconstant harmonic functions with finite Dirichlet integral.
