Research Abstract 
The main research area of the head investigator is diffusions in infinite dimension. At the same time, a research of diffusions on a Riemannian manifold is accomplished because geometric point of view is important in our research. We gave a probabilistic proof of the LittlewoodPaley inequality, the L^P norm equivalence between the gradient and the square of the generator, essential selfadjointness of a Schrodinger operator, and the spectral gap. The essential matter we used is the intertwining property between gradient and the generator. The use of Functional Analysis is crucial because it is irrelevant of the geometry of the space. In our general framework, we assume the logarithmic Sobolev inequality and the exponential integrability of the remaining term of the intertwining property. We also discussed the similar problem in a setting of Riemannian manifold with convex boundary. Further we considered a Schrodinger operator on the Wiener space of the form L+V,L beging the OrnsteinUh

lenbeck operator. We gave a characterization of the generator domain and proved the essential selfadjointness and the spectral gap of the Schrodinger operator under a suitable condition of the potiential V. We also showed the LittlewoodPaley inequality for the the Schrodinger operator. Since we have a potential term, we need a modification of the standard proof. This method works for a HodgeKodaira operator on a Riemannian manifold with a potential. In this project, we have held several symposiums and gave financial support for participants. One of them is "Stochastic Analysis and related fields" that was a research project of the Research Institute of Mathematical Sciences in 2002. We invited Professors McKean, Ustunel, Rockner, etc., from abroad. The others are "Probability Summer School" in 2003,2004. We gave introductory lectures of frontier of recent research for graduated students. We could accomplish stimulating discussions. We also held every year "Stochastic Processes and related fields", which gave fruitful communication between researchers in Japan. As a sum, we held 24 symposiums during three years and invited 14 foreign researchers and produced many results. Less
