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…

Sharp Logarithmic Sobolev and related inequalities with monomial weights
We derive a sharp Logarithmic Sobolev inequality with monomial weights starting from a sharp Sobolev inequality with monomial weights. Several related inequalities such as Shannon type and

In the present paper, a new uncertainty principle is derived for the generalized q-Bessel wavelet transform studied earlier in [55]. In this paper, an uncertainty principle associated with wavelet

Anisotropic Shannon inequality
After Shannon’s seminal paper [Sha48] in 1948, several versions of Shannon’s inequality have appeared either in discrete, cf. [Khi57, AB00, Wei78, AO73], or in integral form, cf. [Isi72, Kap87,
A Quantum Wavelet Uncertainty Principle
In the present paper, an uncertainty principle is derived in the quantum wavelet framework. Precisely, a new uncertainty principle for the generalized q-Bessel wavelet transform, based on some
Beckner type of the logarithmic Sobolev and a new type of Shannon’s inequalities and an application to the uncertainty principle
We consider the inequality which has a “dual” relation with Beckner’s logarithmic Sobolev inequality. By using the relative entropy, we identify the sharp constant and the extremal of this

Pitt’s inequality and the uncertainty principle
The "uncertainty principle" is formulated using logarithmic estimates obtained from a sharp form of Pitt's inequality. The qualitative nature of this result underlies the relations connecting
On a (β,q)-generalized Fisher information and inequalities involving q-Gaussian distributions
It is shown that the minimization of the generalized Fisher information also leads a generalized q-Gaussian, and an extended Stam inequality is given that links the generalized entropies, the generalized Fischer information, and a elliptic moment.

An explicit formula relating the Hermite semigroup e~'H on R with Gauss measure and the heat-diffusion semigroup e'A on R with Lebesgue measure is proved. From this formula it follows that Nelson's

The derivation of new extended Cramer–Rao inequalities for the estimation of a parameter, involving general q-moments of the estimation error, is derived.

The purpose of this note is to give a short proof of the Gross logarithmic Sobolev inequality using the asymptotics of the sharp L2 Sobolev constant and the product structure of Euclidean space. Let

We show the non-uniform bound for a solution to the Cauchy problem of a drift–diffusion equation of a parabolic–elliptic type in higher space dimensions. If an initial data satisfies a certain
The optimal Euclidean Lp-Sobolev logarithmic inequality
where β is an appropriate positive constant, see [1, 2, 4, 6, 7]. The question of uniqueness of ground states for (1.1) when f(u) has such exponential behavior has not previously been treated; the
