It is well known that the analysis of the large-time asymptotics of Fokker-Planck type equations by the entropy method is closely related to proving the validity of convex Sobolev inequalities. Here we highlight this connection from an applied PDE point of view. In our unified presentation of the theory we present new results to the following topics: an elementary derivation of Bakry-Emery type conditions, results concerning perturbations of invariant measures with general admissible entropies… 
Exponential Convergence to Equilibrium for Kinetic Fokker-Planck Equations
A class of linear kinetic Fokker-Planck equations with a non-trivial diffusion matrix and with periodic boundary conditions in the spatial variable is considered. After formulating the problem in a
Large-time behavior of non-symmetric Fokker-Planck type equations
Large time asymptotics of the solutions to non-symmetric Fokker- Planck type equations are studied by extending the entropy method to this case. We present a modified Bakry-Emery criterion that
Convex Sobolev Inequalities Derived from Entropy Dissipation
We study families of convex Sobolev inequalities, which arise as entropy–dissipation relations for certain linear Fokker–Planck equations. Extending the ideas recently developed by the first two
Improved Sobolev's inequalities, relative entropy and fast diffusion equations
The difference of the two terms in Sobolev's inequality (with optimal constant) measures a distance to the manifold of the optimal functions. We give an explicit estimate of the remainder term and
