  author={Fabrice Baudoin and Maria Gordina and Tai Melcher},
Abstract. We prove Cameron-Martin type quasi-invariance results for the heat kernel measure of infinite-dimensional Kolmogorov and related diffusions. We first study quantitative functional inequalities for appropriate finite-dimensional approximations of these diffusions, and we prove these inequalities hold with dimension-independent coefficients. Applying an approach developed in [5, 10, 11], these uniform bounds may then be used to prove that the heat kernel measure for certain of these… 



Quasi-invariance for heat kernel measures on sub-Riemannian infinite-dimensional Heisenberg groups

We study heat kernel measures on sub-Riemannian infinite- dimensional Heisenberg-like Lie groups. In particular, we show that Cameron-Martin type quasi-invariance results hold in this subelliptic

Hypoelliptic heat kernels on infinite-dimensional Heisenberg groups

We study the law of a hypoelliptic Brownian motion on an infinite-dimensional Heisenberg group based on an abstract Wiener space. We show that the endpoint distribution, which can be seen as a heat

An application of a functional inequality to quasi-invariance in infinite dimensions

One way to interpret smoothness of a measure in infinite dimensions is quasi-invariance of the measure under a class of transformations. Usually such settings lack a reference measure such as the

Functional Inequalities for Hypoelliptic Diffusions Using Probabilistic and Geometric Methods

We study gradient bounds and other functional inequalities related to hypoelliptic diffusions. One of the key techniques in our work is the use of coupling of diffusion processes to prove gradient

Gradient bounds for Kolmogorov type diffusions

We study gradient bounds and other functional inequalities for the diffusion semigroup generated by Kolmogorov type operators. The focus is on two different methods: coupling techniques and

Hypoelliptic second order differential equations

that is, if u must be a C ~ function in every open set where Pu is a C ~ function. Necessary and sufficient conditions for P to be hypoelliptic have been known for quite some time when the
