We investigate stability of invariant measures of diffusion processes with respect to $L^p$ distances on the coefficients, under an assumption of log-concavity. The method is a variant of a technique introduced by Crippa and De Lellis to study transport equations. As an application, we prove a partial extension of an inequality of Ledoux, Nourdin and Peccati relating transport distances and Stein discrepancies to a non-Gaussian setting via the moment map construction of Stein kernels. 

Optimal stability estimates and a new uniqueness result for advection-diffusion equations

This paper contains two main contributions. First, it provides optimal stability estimates for advection-diffusion equations in a setting in which the velocity field is Sobolev regular in the spatial



On the existence and uniqueness of invariant measure for multidimensional diffusion processes

This paper deals with the mathematical analysis of multidimensional processes solution of a class of stochastic differential equations. Specifically the analysis is addressed to the derivation of

It is shown how regularity bounds on moment maps control the rate of convergence in the classical central limit theorem, and new rates in Kantorovitch-Wasserstein distance in the log-concave situation are derived with explicit polynomial dependence on the dimension.

Well-posedness of Multidimensional Diffusion Processes with Weakly Differentiable Coefficients

We investigate well-posedness for martingale solutions of stochastic differential equations, under low regularity assumptions on their coefficients, widely extending some results first obtained by A.

Transport inequalities, gradient estimates, entropy and Ricci curvature

We present various characterizations of uniform lower bounds for the Ricci curvature of a smooth Riemannian manifold M in terms of convexity properties of the entropy (considered as a function on the

Sobolev differentiable flows of SDEs with local Sobolev and super-linear growth coefficients

By establishing a characterization for Sobolev differentiability of random fields, we prove the weak differentiability of solutions to stochastic differential equations with local Sobolev and

Generalized Γ Calculus and Application to Interacting Particles on a Graph

The classical Bakry-Émery calculus is extended to study, for degenerated (non-elliptic, non-reversible, or non-diffusive) Markov processes, questions such as hypoellipticity, hypocoercivity,

Multivariate normal approximation using Stein's method and Malliavin calculus

We combine Stein's method with Malliavin calculus in order to obtain explicit bounds in the multidimensional normal approximation (in the Wasserstein distance) of functionals of Gaussian fields. Our

Stein operators, kernels and discrepancies for multivariate continuous distributions

We present a general framework for setting up Stein's method for multivariate continuous distributions. The approach gives a collection of Stein characterizations, among which we highlight

The Poisson Equation and Estimates for Distances Between Stationary Distributions of Diffusions

We estimate distances between stationary solutions to Fokker–Planck–Kolmogorov equations with different diffusion and drift coefficients. To this end we study the Poisson equation on the whole space.
