A Short Course on Rearrangement Inequalities

  title={A Short Course on Rearrangement Inequalities},
  author={Almut Burchard},
These notes grew out of introductory courses for graduate students that I gave at the First IMDEA Winter School in Madrid in January 2009, and at the Universita di Napoli “Federico II” in April 2009. The manuscript has been been slightly expanded to five sections, each providing material for one or two hours of lecture. The first section gives an overview of the classical rearrangement inequalities and their applications. The relationship between a function and its level sets is explored… 
Extended Rearrangement Inequalities and Applications to Some Quantitative Stability Results
In this paper, we prove a new functional inequality of Hardy–Littlewood type for generalized rearrangements of functions. We then show how this inequality provides quantitative stability results of
Kohler-Jobin meets Ehrhard: the sharp lower bound for the Gaussian principal frequency while the Gaussian torsional rigidity is fixed, via rearrangements
Abstract. In this note, we provide an adaptation of the Kohler-Jobin rearrangement technique to the setting of the Gauss space. As a result, we prove the Gaussian analogue of the Kohler-Jobin’s
Estimates and asymptotic expansions for condenser p-capacities. The anisotropic case of segments
Abstract We provide estimates and asymptotic expansions of condenser p-capacities and focus on the anisotropic case of (line) segments. After preliminary results, we study p-capacities of points with
Bounds on the number of integer points in a polytope via concentration estimates
It is generally hard to count, or even estimate, how many integer points lie in a polytope P. Barvinok and Hartigan have approached the problem by way of information theory, showing how to
Independence Models for Integer Points of Polytopes.
Independence Models for Integer Points of Polytopes by Austin Warren Shapiro Chair: Alexander I. Barvinok The integer points of a high-dimensional polytope P are generally difficult to count or
On a conjectural symmetric version of Ehrhard's inequality
As one of the results of this manuscript, we show that for any logconcave measure μ on R, any pair of symmetric convex sets K and L, and any λ ∈ [0, 1], μ((1− λ)K + λL)n ≥ (1− λ)μ(K)n + λμ(L)n ,
Geometric inequalities in harmonic analysis
Geometric inequalities have been hot topics in analysis, geometry, PDE, probability and combinatorial theory.Among so many geometric inequalities, fractional integral inequalities exceptionally
Topological asymptotic expansions for a class of quasilinear elliptic equations. Estimates and asymptotic expansions of condenser p-capacities. The anisotropic case of segments.
Topological asymptotic expansions for quasilinear elliptic equations, such as the p-Laplace equation, have not been studied yet. Such questions arise from the need to apply topological asymptotic
Decoupling of DeGiorgi-Type Systems via Multi-Marginal Optimal Transport
We exhibit a surprising relationship between elliptic gradient systems of PDEs, multi-marginal Monge-Kantorovich optimal transport problem, and multivariable Hardy-Littlewood inequalities. We show
Comparison results and improved quantified inequalities for semilinear elliptic equations
In this paper, we prove some pointwise comparison results between the solutions of some second-order semilinear elliptic equations in a domain $$\Omega $$Ω of $$\mathbb {R}^n$$Rn and the solutions of


An approach to symmetrization via polarization
We prove that the Steiner symmetrization of a function can be approximated in L p (R n ) by a sequence of very simple rearrangements which are called polarizations. This result is exploited to
Sharp constants in the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev and related inequalities
A maximizing function, f, is shown to exist for the HLS inequality on R': 11 IXI - * fIq < Np f A , Iif IIwith Nbeing the sharp constant and i/p + X/n = 1 + 1/q, 1 <p, q, n/X < x. When p =q' or p = 2
A Convexity Principle for Interacting Gases
A new set of inequalities is introduced, based on a novel but natural interpolation between Borel probability measures on R d . Using these estimates in lieu of convexity or rearrangement
Existence and uniqueness of monotone measure-preserving maps
Introduction. Given a pair of Borel probability measures # and v on Rd, it is natural to ask whether v can be obtained from # by redistributing its mass in a canonical way. In the case of the line d
A General Rearrangement Inequality for Multiple Integrals
Abstract In this paper we prove a rearrangement inequality that generalizes inequalities given in the book by Hardy, Littlewood and Polya1 and by Luttinger and Friedberg.2 The inequality for an
Existence and Uniqueness of the Minimizing Solution of Choquard's Nonlinear Equation
The equation dealt with in this paper is in three dimensions. It comes from minimizing the functional which, in turn, comes from an approximation to the Hartree-Fock theory of a plasma. It describes
Cases of equality in the riesz rearrangement inequality
We determine the cases of equality in the Riesz rearrangement inequality ZZ f (y)g(x ? y)h(x) dydx ZZ f (y)g (x ? y)h (x) dydx where f , g , and h are the spherically decreasing rearrangements of the
The Brunn-Minkowski inequality
In 1978, Osserman [124] wrote an extensive survey on the isoperimetric inequality. The Brunn-Minkowski inequality can be proved in a page, yet quickly yields the classical isoperimetric inequality
