Exact renormalization groups and transportation of measures

  title={Exact renormalization groups and transportation of measures},
  author={Yair Shenfeld},
. This note provides a new perspective on Polchinski’s equation for the exact renormalization group by explaining how it gives rise, via the multiscale Bakry-´Emery criterion, to Lipschitz transport maps between Gaussian free fields and Euclidean quantum field theories. Consequently, many functional inequalities can be verified for the latter field theories, going beyond the current known results. 

Behavior of the Poincar{\'e} constant along the Polchinski renormalization flow

We control the behavior of the Poincar´e constant along the Polchinski renormalization flow using a dynamic version of Γ-calculus. We also treat the case of higher order eigenvalues. Our method



Spectral monotonicity under Gaussian convolution

We show that the Poincar\'e constant of a log-concave measure in Euclidean space is monotone increasing along the heat flow. In fact, the entire spectrum of the associated Laplace operator is

Some Applications of Mass Transport to Gaussian-Type Inequalities

This map is used in the setting of Gaussian-like measures to derive an inequality linking entropy with mass displacement by a straightforward argument and logarithmic Sobolev and transport inequalities are recovered.

Thin Shell Implies Spectral Gap Up to Polylog via a Stochastic Localization Scheme

We consider the isoperimetric inequality on the class of high-dimensional isotropic convex bodies. We establish quantitative connections between two well-known open problems related to this

Representation formula for the entropy and functional inequalities

We prove a stochastic formula for the Gaussian relative entropy in the spirit of Borell's formula for the Laplace transform. As an application, we give unified and short proofs of a number of

Lipschitz changes of variables via heat flow

We extend Caffarelli’s contraction theorem, by proving that there exist a Lipschitz changes of variables between the Gaussian measure and certain perturbations of it. Our approach is based on an

A stochastic control approach to Sine Gordon EQFT

Abstract We study the Sine-Gordon model for β < 4π in infinite volume. We give a variatonal characterization of it’s laplace transform, and deduce from this large deviations. Along the way we obtain

On the variational method for Euclidean quantum fields in infinite volume

We investigate the infinite volume limit of the variational description of Euclidean quantum fields introduced in a previous work. Focussing on two dimensional theories for simplicity, we prove in

Ornstein-Uhlenbeck and renormalization semigroups

The Ornstein-Uhlenbeck semigroup combines Gaussian diusion with the ow of a linear vector eld. In innite dimensional settings there can be non-Gaussian invariant measures. This gives a context for

Generalization of an Inequality by Talagrand and Links with the Logarithmic Sobolev Inequality

Abstract We show that transport inequalities, similar to the one derived by M. Talagrand (1996, Geom. Funct. Anal. 6 , 587–600) for the Gaussian measure, are implied by logarithmic Sobolev
