Analysis and Geometry of Markov Diffusion Operators By Dominique Bakry
English | EPUB | 2014 | 552 Pages | ISBN : 3319002260 | 6.71 MB
The present volume is an extensive monograph on the analytic and geometric aspects of Markov diffusion operators. It focuses on the geometric curvature properties of the underlying structure in order to study convergence to equilibrium, spectral bounds, functional inequalities such as Poincaré, Sobolev or logarithmic Sobolev inequalities, and various bounds on solutions of evolution equations. At the same time, it covers a large class of evolution and partial differential equations.
