Anisotropic Sobolev Capacity with Fractional Order
In this paper, we introduce the anisotropic Sobolev capacity with fractional order and develop some basic properties for this new object. Applications to the theory of anisotropic fractional Sobolev spaces are provided. In particular, we give geometric characterizations for a nonnegative Radon measure $\mu$ that naturally induces an embedding of the anisotropic fractional Sobolev class $\dot{\Lambda}_{\alpha,K}^{1,1}$ into the $\mu$-based-Lebesgue-space $L^{n/\beta}_\mu$ with $0\lt \beta\le n$. Also, we investigate the anisotropic fractional $\alpha$-perimeter. Such a geometric quantity can be used to approximate the anisotropic Sobolev capacity with fractional order. Estimation on the constant in the related Minkowski inequality, which is asymptotically optimal as $\alpha\rightarrow 0^+$, will be provided.

Heat Kernels and Green Functions on Metric Measure Spaces
We prove that, in a setting of local Dirichlet forms on metric measure spaces, a two-sided sub-Gaussian estimate of the heat kernel is equivalent to the conjunction of the volume doubling propety, the elliptic Harnack inequality and a certain estimate of the capacity between concentric balls. The main technical tool is the equivalence between the capacity estimate and the estimate of a mean exit time in a ball, that uses two-sided estimates of a Green function in a ball.

Keywords:Dirichlet form, heat kernel, Green function, capacity

The Gelfond--Schnirelman Method in Prime Number Theory
The original Gelfond--Schnirelman method, proposed in 1936, uses polynomials with integer coefficients and small norms on $[0,1]$ to give a Chebyshev-type lower bound in prime number theory. We study a generalization of this method for polynomials in many variables. Our main result is a lower bound for the integral of Chebyshev's $\psi$-function, expressed in terms of the weighted capacity. This extends previous work of Nair and Chudnovsky, and connects the subject to the potential theory with external fields generated by polynomial-type weights. We also solve the corresponding potential theoretic problem, by finding the extremal measure and its support.

Keywords:distribution of prime numbers, polynomials, integer, coefficients, weighted transfinite diameter, weighted capacity, potentials
