  • Abstract.In the last thirty years three a priori very different fields of mathematics, optimal transport theory, Riemannian geometry and probability theory, have come together in a remarkable way, leading to a very substantial improvement of our understanding of what may look like a very specific question, namely the analysis of spaces whose Ricci curvature admits a lower bound. The purpose of these lectures is, starting from the classical context, to present the basics of the three fields that… CONTINUE READING
