Can anyone recommend lecture notes or (not too obscure) books that teaches me about gradient flow and what it has to do with PDEs? I did search but usually the material talks about dynamical systems which I don't want too much of. Something understandable by someone that knows about basic parabolic existence results would be good, and something that doesn't require knowledge of Riemannian geometry.
