# A Short Course on Rearrangement Inequalities

@inproceedings{Burchard2009ASC, title={A Short Course on Rearrangement Inequalities}, author={Almut Burchard}, year={2009} }

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

- Mathematics
- 2015

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

- Mathematics
- 2016

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

- Mathematics
- 2010

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 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

- Mathematics
- 2021

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 ,…

Topological asymptotic expansions for a class of quasilinear elliptic equations. Estimates and asymptotic expansions of condenser p-capacities. The anisotropic case of segments.

- Mathematics
- 2013

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

- Mathematics
- 2013

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…

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…

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…
