Abstract: The evolution equation $u_ = \Delta_pu$, posed on a Riemannian manifold, is studied in the singular range $p \in 2$ (1; 2). It is shown that if the manifold supports a suitable Sobolev inequality, the smoothing effect $||u(t)||\infty\leq C ||u(0)||_q^\gamma$/$t^\alpha$ holds true for suitable for $\alpha, \gamma$and that the converse holds if $p$ is sufficiently close to 2, or in the degenerate range $p$ > 2. In such ranges, the Sobolev inequality and the smoothing efect are then equivalent
