Super Ricci flows for Markov chains Erbar, Matthias


I will present a discrete notion of super Ricci flow that applies to time dependent Markov chains or weighted graphs. This notion can be characterized equivalently in terms of a discrete time-dependent Bochner inequality, gradient estimates for the heat propagator on the evolving graph, contraction estimates in discrete transport distances, or dynamic convexity of the entropy. I will also discuss several examples. This is joint work with Eva Kopfer.
