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…
