INI Seminar Room 1
Following exciting developments in the continuous setting of manifolds (and other geodesic spaces), in joint works with various collaborators, I have explored discrete analogs of the interconnection between several functional inequalities in discrete spaces; such inequalities include concentration, transportation, displacement convexity and modified versions of the logarithmic Sobolev inequality. I will attempt to review some of these connections and illustrate with examples. Computational aspects of the underlying functional constants and other open problems will also be mentioned.
