    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    We show that Brownian motion on any unbounded submanifold P in an ambient manifold N with a pole P is transient if the following conditions are satisfied: The p-radial mean curvatures of P are sufficiently small outsidea compact set and the p-radial sectional curvatures of N are sufficiently negative. The 'sufficiency' conditions are obtained via comparison with explicit transience criteria for radially drifted Brownian motion in warped product model spaces.
