Reading Group: Analysis and Geometry of Markov Diffusion Operators

  • Lecturer: Fenna Müller, Zachary Adams
  • Date: Thursdays 15:15, starting April 13th
  • Room: MPI MiS E2 10
  • Keywords: Markov Triples, Poincare Inequalities, Log Sobolev Inequalities


We are reading the book "Analysis and Geometry of Markov Diffusion Operators" by Bakry, Gentil and Ledoux, which deals with the "interplay between analytic, probabilistic and geometric aspects of Markov diffusion operators" (Springer Link description). More specifically, we will treat Log- Sobolev Inequalities this term. We started reading the book during the winter semester already, but it is possible to join. Some knowledge in semigroup theory and Markov Triples is necessary, but can be obtained by reading part of the book. It should definitely be possible to catch up.
