$\Gamma$-convergence for a class of action functionals induced by gradients of convex functions
Given a real function f , the rate function for the large deviations of the diffusion process of drift ∇f given by the Freidlin-Wentzell theorem coincides with the time integral of the energy
Eulerian Calculus for the Displacement Convexity in the Wasserstein Distance
A new proof of the (strong) displacement convexity of a class of integral functionals defined on a compact Riemannian manifold satisfying a lower Ricci curvature bound is given.
Convex Analysis and Optimization in Hadamard Spaces
This book gives a first systematic account on the subject of convex analysis and optimization in Hadamard spaces. It is primarily aimed at both graduate students and researchers in analysis and

Gradient flows on nonpositively curved metric spaces and harmonic maps
The notion of gradient flows is generalized to a metric space setting without any linear structure. The metric spaces considered are a generalization of Hilbert spaces, and the properties of such
Metric Spaces of Non-Positive Curvature
This book describes the global properties of simply-connected spaces that are non-positively curved in the sense of A. D. Alexandrov, and the structure of groups which act on such spaces by
The dynamical Schr\"odinger problem in abstract metric spaces
The dynamical Schrödinger problem on abstract metric spaces is introduced, defined for a wide class of entropy and Fisher information functionals, and under very mild assumptions a generic Gamma-convergence result towards the geodesic problem is proved.
