Curvature-dimension conditions for symmetric quantum Markov semigroups

  title={Curvature-dimension conditions for symmetric quantum Markov semigroups},
  author={Melchior Wirth and Haonan Zhang},
Following up on the recent work on lower Ricci curvature bounds for quantum systems, we introduce two noncommutative versions of curvature-dimension bounds for symmetric quantum Markov semigroups over matrix algebras. Under suitable such curvature-dimension conditions, we prove a family of dimension-dependent functional inequalities, a version of the Bonnet–Myers theorem and concavity of entropy power in the noncommutative setting. We also provide examples satisfying certain curvature-dimension… 

Complete order and relative entropy decay rates

We prove that the complete modified log-Sobolev constant of a quantum Markov semigroup is bounded by the inverse of its completely bounded mixing time. This implies that the complete modified

Interpolation between modified logarithmic Sobolev and Poincare inequalities for quantum Markovian dynamics

. In this work, we define the quantum p -divergences and introduce the Beckner’s inequalities, for the primitive quantum Markov semigroup with σ -detailed balance condition. Such inequalities quantify

Complete Modified Logarithmic Sobolev inequality for sub-Laplacian on $SU(2)$

. We prove that the canonical sub-Laplacian on SU (2) admits a uniform modified log-Sobolev inequality for all its matrix valued functions, independent of the matrix dimension. This is the first

Stability property for the quantum jump operators of an open system

. We show the continuity property of spectral gaps and complete Logarithmic constants in terms of the jump operators of Lindblad generators in finite dimensional setting. Our method is based on the



Complete Gradient Estimates of Quantum Markov Semigroups

A complete gradient estimate for symmetric quantum Markov semigroups on von Neumann algebras equipped with a normal faithful tracial state is introduced, which implies semi-convexity of the entropy with respect to the recently introduced noncommutative 2-Wasserstein distance.

Complete Logarithmic Sobolev inequality via Ricci curvature bounded below II

We study the “geometric Ricci curvature lower bound”, introduced previously by Junge, Li and LaRacuente, for a variety of examples including group von Neumann algebras, free orthogonal quantum groups

A Noncommutative Transport Metric and Symmetric Quantum Markov Semigroups as Gradient Flows of the Entropy

We study quantum Dirichlet forms and the associated symmetric quantum Markov semigroups on noncommutative $L^2$ spaces. It is known from the work of Cipriani and Sauvageot that these semigroups

Ricci Curvature of Finite Markov Chains via Convexity of the Entropy

We study a new notion of Ricci curvature that applies to Markov chains on discrete spaces. This notion relies on geodesic convexity of the entropy and is analogous to the one introduced by Lott,

On the equivalence of the entropic curvature-dimension condition and Bochner’s inequality on metric measure spaces

We prove the equivalence of the curvature-dimension bounds of Lott–Sturm–Villani (via entropy and optimal transport) and of Bakry–Émery (via energy and $$\Gamma _2$$Γ2-calculus) in complete

Noncommutative martingale deviation and Poincaré type inequalities with applications

We prove a deviation inequality for noncommutative martingales by extending Oliveira’s argument for random matrices. By integration we obtain a Burkholder type inequality with satisfactory constant.

Transport inequalities, gradient estimates, entropy and Ricci curvature

We present various characterizations of uniform lower bounds for the Ricci curvature of a smooth Riemannian manifold M in terms of convexity properties of the entropy (considered as a function on the

On the Shannon entropy power on Riemannian manifolds and Ricci flow.

In this paper, we prove the concavity of the Shannon entropy power for the heat equation associated with the Laplacian or the Witten Laplacian on complete Riemannian manifolds with suitable
