Wasserstein contraction and Poincar\'e inequalities for elliptic diffusions at high temperature

  title={Wasserstein contraction and Poincar\'e inequalities for elliptic diffusions at high temperature},
  author={Pierre Monmarch'e},
We consider elliptic diffusion processes on Rd. Assuming that the drift contracts distances outside a compact set, we prove that, at a sufficiently high temperature, the Markov semi-group associated to the process is a contraction of the W2 Wasserstein distance, which implies a Poincaré inequality for its invariant measure. The result doesn’t require neither reversibility nor an explicit expression of the invariant measure, and the estimates have a sharp dependency on the dimension. Some… 


Almost sure contraction for diffusions on R. Application to generalised Langevin diffusions
In the case of diffusions on Rd with constant diffusion matrix, without assuming reversibility nor hypoellipticity, we prove that the contractivity of the deterministic drift is equivalent to the
Self-improvement of the Bakry-Emery criterion for Poincar{é} inequalities and Wasserstein contraction using variable curvature bounds
We study Poincare inequalities and long-time behavior for diffusion processes on R^n under a variable curvature lower bound, in the sense of Bakry-Emery. We derive various estimates on the rate of
Spectral gaps in Wasserstein distances and the 2D stochastic Navier–Stokes equations
We develop a general method to prove the existence of spectral gaps for Markov semigroups on Banach spaces. Unlike most previous work, the type of norm we consider for this analysis is neither a
Reflection couplings and contraction rates for diffusions
We consider contractivity for diffusion semigroups w.r.t. Kantorovich ($$L^1$$L1 Wasserstein) distances based on appropriately chosen concave functions. These distances are inbetween total variation
Uniform Poincar{\'e} and logarithmic Sobolev inequalities for mean field particles systems
In this paper we establish some explicit and sharp estimates of the spectral gap and the log-Sobolev constant for mean field particles system, uniform in the number of particles, when the confinement
Gradient estimate for Markov kernels, Wasserstein control and Hopf-Lax formula (Potential Theory and its Related Fields)
We extend the duality between gradient estimates of the Markov kernel and Wasserstein controls of that studied by the author (2010). Especially, the gauge norm‐Orlicz norm type duality holds on
Reflection coupling and Wasserstein contractivity without convexity
Quantitative contraction rates for Markov chains on general state spaces
We investigate the problem of quantifying contraction coefficients of Markov transition kernels in Kantorovich ($L^1$ Wasserstein) distances. For diffusion processes, relatively precise quantitative
Poincaré inequalities and hitting times
Equivalence of the spectral gap, exponential integrability of hitting times and Lyapunov conditions are well known. We give here the correspondance (with quantitative results) for reversible
