# Logarithmic Sobolev and Shannon's inequalities and an application to the uncertainty principle

@article{Ogawa2018LogarithmicSA, title={Logarithmic Sobolev and Shannon's inequalities and an application to the uncertainty principle}, author={Takayoshi Ogawa and Kento Seraku}, journal={Communications on Pure and Applied Analysis}, year={2018}, volume={17}, pages={1651-1669} }

The uncertainty principle of Heisenberg type can be generalized via the Boltzmann entropy functional. After reviewing the \begin{document} $L^p$ \end{document} generalization of the logarithmic Sobolev inequality by Del Pino-Dolbeault [ 6 ], we introduce a generalized version of Shannon's inequality for the Boltzmann entropy functional which may regarded as a counter part of the logarithmic Sobolev inequality. Obtaining best possible constants of both inequalities, we connect both the…
