Let $(M,d)$ be a separable and complete geodesic space with curvature lower bounded, by $\kappa\in \mathbb R$, in the sense of Alexandrov. Let $\mu$ be a Borel probability measure on $M$, such that $\mu\in\mathcal P_2(M)$, and that has at least one barycenter $x^{*}\in M$. We show that for any geodesically $\alpha$-convex function $f:M\to \mathbb R$, for $\alpha\in \mathbb R$, the inequality \[f(x^*)\le \int_M (f -\frac{\alpha}{2}d^2(x^*,.))\,{\rm d}\mu,\] holds provided $f$ is locally…

This paper extends the analysis of the exponentially weighted average forecaster, traditionally studied in a Euclidean settings, to a more abstract framework using the notion of barycenters, a suitable version of Jensen’s inequality and a synthetic notion of lower curvature bound in metric spaces known as the measure contraction property.


On the geometry of metric measure spaces
AbstractWe introduce and analyze lower (Ricci) curvature bounds $ \underline{{Curv}} {\left( {M,d,m} \right)} $ ⩾ K for metric measure spaces $ {\left( {M,d,m} \right)} $. Our definition is based on
Jensen’s inequality on convex spaces
We prove a Jensen’s inequality on $$p$$-uniformly convex space in terms of $$p$$-barycenters of probability measures with $$(p-1)$$-th moment with $$p\in ]1,\infty [$$ under a geometric condition,
On the geometry of metric measure spaces. II
AbstractWe introduce a curvature-dimension condition CD (K, N) for metric measure spaces. It is more restrictive than the curvature bound $\underline{{{\text{Curv}}}} {\left( {M,{\text{d}},m}

Heat Kernel Comparison on Alexandrov Spaces with Curvature Bounded Below
In this paper the comparison result for the heat kernel on Riemannian manifolds with lower Ricci curvature bound by Cheeger and Yau (1981) is extended to locally compact path metric spaces (X,d) with
Probability Measures on Metric Spaces of Nonpositive Curvature
We present an introduction to metric spaces of nonpositive curvature (”NPC spaces”) and a discussion of barycenters of probability measures on such spaces. In our introduction to NPC spaces, we will
Convergence rates for empirical barycenters in metric spaces: curvature, convexity and extendable geodesics
This paper provides rates of convergence for empirical (generalised) barycenters on compact geodesic metric spaces under general conditions using empirical processes techniques. Our main assumption
Probability, Convexity, and Harmonic Maps with Small Image I: Uniqueness and Fine Existence
This paper uses probability theory to provide an approach to the Dirichlet problem for harmonic maps. The probabilistic tools used are those of manifold-valued Brownian motion and Γ-martingales.
