Dirichlet forms: Some infinite dimensional examples


The theory of Dirichlet forms deserves to be better known. It is an area of Markov process theory that uses the energy of functionals to study a Markov process from a quantitative point of view. For instance, the recent notes of Saloff-Coste [S-C] use Dirichlet forms to analyze Markov chains with finite state space, by making energy comparisons. In this way… (More)
