Abstract: Perelman's entropy functional plays an important role in analyzing
Ricci flow. We develop Perelman's entropy functional for manifolds with conical
singularity. It involves a singular Schrodinger operator and the analysis of the
asymptotic behavior of its eigenfunctions near the conical singularity. This is joint
work with Changliang Wang.
