ABSTRACT
We prove existence and uniqueness of the gradient flow of the Entropy functional under the only assumption that the functional is λ-geodesically convex for some $${\lambda\in\mathbb {R}}$$. Also, we prove a general stability result for gradient flows of geodesically convex functionals which Γ−converge to some limit functional. The stability result applies directly to the case of the Entropy functionals on compact spaces.

    We show that if ψ is an f-biharmonic map from a compact Riemannian manifold into a Riemannian manifold with non-positive curvature satisfying a condition, then ψ is an f-harmonic map. We prove that if the f-tension field Tf (ψ) of a map ψ of Riemannian manifolds is a Jacobi field and...
