Abstract

We give a recursive algorithm for the computation of the complete asymptotic series, for small time, of the amount of heat inside a domain with smooth boundary in a Riemannian manifold; we consider arbitrary smooth initial data, and we impose Dirichlet condition on the boundary. When the Ricci curvature of the domain and the mean curvature of its boundary are both nonnegative, we also give sharp upper and lower bounds of the heat content which hold for all values of time. These estimates extend to convex sets of the Euclidean space having arbitrary boundary.
